Opportunity for a photo shoot

Nov 25, 2015 | Featured, Life & Business, Personal - development

December/January of this year was energetically difficult for me. 
Coming off a high in November where I had been focusing on a goal for a few months (placing Top 5 in a Pro show; international show none the less!), the following weeks left me…..empty.
I didn’t feel like I could step back into a rhythm with my growing business team. I felt disconnected with those around me and more importantly, with myself. 
With the new year starting, I had goals but wasn’t motivated. No motivation to be productive, eat well, or workout, let alone lead a group of business professionals. I felt like I was carrying a ton of emotional weight. I lost my passion. (Anyone else relate?)
I was in a funk and needed to get back in touch with me. I found myself following my heart.  I was compelled to shoot with a woman who did storytelling with her photography. I struggled with going ahead with it, as it seemed selfish and pointless. I made arrangements anyway. 

I do find it stressful preparing for a shoot, but once I’m there, I’m in the zone. It’s like meditation for me, where I am alone with my thoughts and I can be quietly creative and let my inner voice speak. 
I had an opportunity to shoot with Lynn Dao of Highline Images in Phoenix, AZ in January. What an experience. ❤️ Although physically demanding, I found it cathartic & peaceful at the same time. 
I haven’t felt comfortable enough to share them until now. More to follow….

Confessions of a Pro Fitness Competitor

I do fitness competitions because I have a hard time staying accountable to myself.  Now that I’m FORTY 😱, I can compete with 40+ year olds, instead of the young gals who don’t have kids 😂.  This process involves overhauling my lazy lifestyle. This...

Falling From a High

“Mommy, did you cry when I was born?” Where did that question come from?  Is it because I cry at most of our family meetings?  Should I tell him the truth? Why wouldn’t I tell him the truth?  “No.  I didn’t cry when you were born.  (Feeling guilty...

My Journey – April 2012

My journey...April 2012 I was disgusted with myself. My son was almost 2. I was tired, sick, carb-overloaded. I did a detox and became vegetarian. June 2014 my daughter was 1.5 yrs old and there I was again, unhappy with my body. Dreading...

Tonight I breathe in peace

Great discussion tonight after a long day in clinic, on the road, open house, and delayed bedtimes. I know I'm not the only one rudely awakened to the adjustment of going back to school, being more adjustment than expected. What a shock to the...

Comparison mode has a way of creeping up

4 years ago today

July 31, 2018 4 years ago today, I made a seemingly small decision that would change me in ways I couldn’t even fathom at the time.  2014, I was still uncomfortable in my own skin, covering myself up at the beach.  After maternity leave, my husband...

Constant comparison

Constant comparison. Negative self talk. Thinking everyone else had it together while I was falling apart. Being my worst critic. Focusing on lack. Giving up on myself, my health, my happiness, my dreams since what I was doing wasn’t working....
