One of the things that I've learned about myself is that it's important for me to spend a fair amount of time alone. I had always thought myself to be an extrovert, because I love people so much... But I've realized it's become necessary to disconnect from my social environment and enjoy the quiet. Listen and observe the way things move when there are no distractions. ⠀
this sunrise photo was taken during my last visit in #AstoriaOR for @commodorehotelastoria -check out more of my work on their IG. 🤗📸

It's my birthday!!!!!!!
This is one of many really special photos @jayeads and I created as a reflection of what it is truly like to grow. From, and with yourself.
Getting older has such a begrudging stigma attached to it, but I personally have transcended to such a happier place with every year that I have had the opportunity to get to know the human being that I am. I am so thankful for life. Really! It kicks my ass sometimes, but it rewards me with well more than it's worth in love and affection and appreciation.
I can't wait to get to know what the tomorrows of forever hold, and continue to share my art, life, and experiences with the amazing world we live in. 🙏💙🌎🌍🌏
Thank you for your bright mind and your smile and your hope. I appreciate you. ⠀
I'm being brave and sharing this photo because I'm learning to love myself despite of my imperfections. 🙏 📸 @_chriseadicicco
