Back in the spring I was asked to be a part of another one of their episodes. 😄
The thought of going on public forum and talking about my own personal struggles with mental health kind of scared me a little bit, I won't lie. I'm going to be judged..or am I?
Not only that, but the thought of seeing myself on camera scared the crap out of me! I think I almost needed that kick in the butt, because now I realize how nerve-wracking and scary it is for my clients when they step into my studio.
I needed that experience, solely so I could remember what my clients deal with almost every day after they book a shoot with me.
You can actually see and hear me in this video talking about how seeing myself in a video, shot by somebody else, opened my eyes. And Meghan, quickly reminds me of what I needed to remember....
I won't lie, part of me was scared to share this video because I was worried about how I looked.
I won't lie, I thought I might be judged, because I clearly admit that I have mental health problems.
I won't lie, I picked myself apart a little bit.
I won't lie, I picked myself apart, a lot.
I won't lie and pretend that I'm always easy on myself, positive about my appearance, and I will admit that I don't always practice what I preach, with myself.
I won't lie, I am completely and utterly infatuated with my business. Why? I truly and honestly want to use my talent as a vehicle to help as many women, as much as possible, see how FREAKING amazing they are! Scratch that, I want them to not only SEE how amazing they look... But more so, FEEL how one of a kind, deep down beautiful, and POWERFUL they are.
Thank you to Kat and Meghan for everything you do! The Curve is a powerful vehicle for spreading the body positive word. I am completely honored that you included me in two of your episodes. Keep doing what you do!
Let's end the stigma surrounding Mental Health.
