no matter what circumstance, let your courage be unshakable.
a large part of growing up is finding your voice.
Never forget that your heart matters, your opinions are valued and even if you feel forgotten, you’re not. Don’t abandon your beliefs just because others have abandoned theirs, don’t silence your voice just because they aren’t popular words and never conform yourself to the situation you’re put in. You were beautifully and wonderfully made, designed for a purpose, and God is cheering you on, wanting you to embody who he created you to be. So please, don’t forget your worth and be courageous even when it’s hard.
lately I’ve been lucky to work with some very talented friends who are actively pursuing their passions (photography & videography). And let me tell ya, it’s inspiring. It reminds me to do what I love and to do it well.
This was a fun little fall photo shoot I did with my friend TJ (@tylerdooghan) right in our backyard (literally, lol). I am so in awe of his creativity and absolutely loved how these turned out. Color tones, artsiness, uniqueness… so good.
I know how easy it is to see a picture of yourself and immediately criticize each aspect… but I challenge you to take a close up picture (or have someone take one) of yourself and admire your beauty.
Trust me, when I had bad active acne, I was my own biggest critic. I would stare at a photo of my face and literally hate so many things about it. But let me be the first to tell you, that is so unhealthy and unproductive. It would just lead me to further unhappiness.
You are beautiful, so do not believe differently. Don’t believe the lie that skin or any other superficial issue defines you, because it doesn’t. You are defined by your heart and your actions. So be courageous💛 and love yo self, you deserve it sista
