About

Hi and welcome to Project 33.

Project 33 is a visual creative project to document my 33rd year on this planet in this life.

WHY

Why is this project needed? Because we don’t love ourselves enough. We are way too critical of ourselves and we are mean to ourselves. I’m the meanest person to me I know. In order to start loving yourself, you have to see yourself with the eyes of love. You are allowed to appreciate yourself, to adorn yourself, to frame yourself and to showcase the amazing creation of God that is you. When you first show yourself love, only then does the world reflect it back to you. My Guru Paramahamsa Vishwananda says this all the time. Just Love and start with yourself.

HOW

Project 33 is a 365-day visual creative project during which I will either take a photo or be in a photo every single day for 1 year. Each photo posted will be accompanied by a short description and a reflection of what happened to me that day.

WHAT

You can expect a new blog post every week. You can also sign up for my weekly email and get a handy reminder in your inbox so you don’t miss a thing.

I’m happy you are here. I’d love to hear from you on Instagram – @rituashrafi, Snapchat – ri2ti2 or Twitter – @rituashrafi.

Love you!

Ritu
