😜 #tbt to Australia a year ago when "FUCK A REGULAR PICTURE" was born.
I honestly had gotten so fed up with looking exactly the same in every picture, with the same forced smile and the same "hand on hip" pose that I said to @jensinkler and @jillfit "Fuck a regular picture; I'm over it." Over the course of the next year I set out to be as silly and ridiculous in pictures as felt authentic to me. Some days I'm regular, to be sure, but most days my outward expression matches my inner weirdo.
In our house, we use "weird" as a compliment. We have impromptu dance parties wherein we try to outdo each other's weirdness. We use a tribespeak that makes very little sense to anyone but our family. We encourage individuality and free expression.
We're not conditioned to believe that we have the right to be who we are, that it's okay to be weird, to take up space, and to go against the grain. But something as simple as refusing to force a smile in every photo can be a catalyst for awakening us to our own inner weirdo. #fuckaregularpicture #overit #thisisnormal #nastywoman #authenticity #throwbackthursday
