"Finding me" or you finding you is something that we all do on a daily basis and sometimes without really noticing. What we wanted 20 years ago isn't the same thing we want now. Change is something some of us fear and some of us embrace. I know that I am able to embrace change, but I also fear it. My anxiety goes up, but once I see the change, it is something beautiful and I except it with grace.
My kids always asked me if I wanted to get a tattoo? Well, I tell them that I already have one...lol Oh and you know they ask if they can we see it?!?! So I show them the stretch marks that I had come to terms with many years ago. The stretch marks, the extra skin is something more than just beautiful. It is a piece of me and my children. Heck, one can call it a keepsake.
No worries, clothing is something I wear to include in this photoshoot that my wonderful daughter Destiny assisted me with. I had been thinking for years to take the shots, but never dared myself. I thought I was to fat, my skin was to lose, my legs are too short, my arms flap too much like a chicken or that I was just plain and simple just NOT pretty. So trust me to take pictures of me like this took a lot of encouragement and the assistance of my daughter. We all need to remember that life isn't as bad as we make it seem. It is the next step we take that makes it something magical and amazing.
