Today I’m going to let Kesha speak for me. Because today I’m acknowledging that I’m not perfect. I’m full of scars, but today I’m who I am. Today I’m letting go of holding onto my favorite photos because I don’t feel like I’m good enough. Today I decide that I’m FKN awesome. ❤
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me
But you know what’s not awesome? Taking EPA fish oil and tasting it in my mouth while eating my favorite cheese. Yikes. Note to self, next time I’m blogging – none of that please.
And yeah – another bride who made her own dress and looked like a goddamn queen wearing it! This was one of the steamiest days (literally) of the summer but even though I kinda don’t like when it gets really warm, it was still an awesome day. It’s a good experience going through photos from the past and seeing them so differently than while editing. I’m overly critical of the photos I take of others and of the photos I take of myself, and I will probably always be. It’s both a good and a bad thing – and I’m definitely doing my best to let go of the perfection part of it which has always just slowed me down. So no more of that! If I like a photo, it’s a keeper. If something annoys me about it, I’m tossing it away. It’s all about gut feeling from now on. That’s how you put work out there that looks like you. Thinking about how you SHOULD do something never is the answer.
