This March I had the pleasure of shooting with @Foreverrikk! I do most of my own styling for shoots but this time I really wanted to showcase my body. Being a young mother after the birth of my son Trace, I was super body conscious. For a long time I wouldn't wear crop tops or anything exposing my mid drift due to my stretch marks. Now that I'm older I've learned to love the marks. Not only are they a part of me, they tell my story. As I am wrapping up my project Liberation, I want to release more than seven songs, I want to release all that stops me from being who I truly am, Inside and Out. So if your reading this, Love yourself...All of you. The things that we sometimes hate about ourselves are the very things that set us apart and make us individuals. If you have enough courage to show the world, those things will also be the reason someone admires you!
- Live Liberated
"A rose's rarest essence lives in the thorn. A thorn defends the rose, harming only those who would steal the blossom."
I kicked off this month collaborating with Tori Nicole. There's nothing i enjoy more than natural chemistry in creative projects. We were able to get a collection of breath-taking shots within twenty five minutes our first time working together. The photo to the left is my favorite shot from the series. In a lot of ways I can relate to the rose. I have to protect my talents and energy so that I too can blossom into the woman I am becoming. The scorpio moon is today and I'm so ready to purge unnecessary connections from my life. Death is apart of life, both an ending and a beginning.
Let go and Live Liberated,
I'm a couple days late but happy April! I'm into astrology so when the Sun goes into Aries It signifies a New Year for me, so I reflect twice on what I want this year to be like. Last year was beautiful but filled with so many obstacles. Most of which came from other people and allowing their actions to steal my joy and peace of mind. That is no more. This month specifically I have directed my energy back inward. I have been taking care of my own needs, emotionally, physically, and spiritually and I have gained a new perspective on life. I feel that I better understand my worth and how precious my energy is. This year I want to surround myself with people who not only recognize my value but actively appreciate it with their ACTIONS. If you know anything about the Universal laws you know that our outside world is mirrored by our inside world. With that being said, I had to face myself and realize that I was not loving myself the way I should or seeing the worth of my presence in my own life or in others. This lead to me putting myself last, chasing relationships that were not good for me and wasting my time trying to get others to see in me what I couldn't even see in myself. After coming to this awareness I CHANGED MY MIND. I'm grateful to God for those experiences because without them I wouldn't know what I deserved. I'm Liberating myself from the thoughts I've had that have stood in the way of the love I deserve. No longer will I sabotage my own happiness by creating situations that reflect the "I'm not good enough" thought process. If your reading this I challenge you to look at yourself and see what It is your creating that is keeping you from living your best life. After doing so, Don't blame, reflect on what you are thinking to create that undesired out come and start the process of change within yourself.
