Welcome to Day 27 of February Photofest 2019 on MxNillin.com
Dunno if y’all saw, but a few days ago Annie called my ass scrumptious in a roundup post she made and honestly… it made me fucking melt. I mean, have you seen hers? It’s incredible. So, while I’m not really great at taking compliments, because my negative self-talk voice is an asshole, I’ve been really making an effort lately to not only accept them more but also see in me the sexy that others do too.
That has to be one of my biggest personal lessons from my experiences with February Photofest 2019: acknowledging that I’m attractive to others, even if I don’t always feel attractive to myself, and accepting their compliments as being genuine; because doing otherwise is both being unkind to myself and has a constant negative impact on my mental health. Besides Annie’s right, my ass IS scrumptious! And I need to give it the damn recognition it deserves every now and then too!
Which brings me to another thing that I’ve received a compliment on this month, which I happen to actually love about myself too: my eyes.
I’ve long been blessed with the gift of full, bold, luscious eyelashes. Sadly, I was incapable of seeing them as anything but a curse for the first twenty-some-years of my life though because prior to coming out, when I was in toxic man mode, I saw them as soft and unmanly. Now I fucking love them! I love how they accentuate my eyes, I love how well they photograph, I love how sultry they make me look sometimes, and I love how alluring they are to my partners, friends, peers, and even complete strangers on the internet.
In fact, whenever I want to send something particularly seductive to somebody I’m into, you can bet they’ll be getting my best bedroom eyes.

You do have great bedroom eyes…
I think a lot of us have gained a healthier self-esteem through blogging. Really, there are so many people out there just waiting for our stories, waiting to connect. Waiting for us to encourage them to share their own stories.
It builds me up.
Big love for this post, your vulnerability and your scrumptious ass 🙂 and I identify… sometimes I feel like I take pictures of myself to try to see myself the way others might see me? And to be appreciative. It’s hard work. But good.
