Strong..... I have gone through a lot in my life, starting at a very young age. The people closest to my life know about pretty much everything, but the last 4 years has been the hardest by far. As I have been creating these images, they have not only helping me heal, it is making me stronger in so many ways.
For me to now be able to get in front of a camera without dreading it, well that is huge, lol. I am not afraid to show my creative work, I remember how nervous I was to share my first one and make my announcement, I actually felt sick about what everyone would think. Thanks to the amazing support from all of you, I am much more confident. I still have my moments of not being sure about my work, but I have come a long way.
I was not able to talk about my Mom and everything that she and I went through, these blog posts are very hard to write, but the weight that is lifted off of my shoulders once I post it is just amazing. And I love that others have found strength and comfort in my images and blogs, and that is something that is extremely important to me.
For the first time in a long time, I am proud of myself for not only opening up fully, but for taking that leap of faith and following my heart and creating art!
All of the things I have gone through as a child, after my Mom's passing, doing what I love it has all made me stronger, both the good and the bad. I wanted to create an image showing my inner strength, that lights me up.
Thank you so much for reading this blog and all of my others =)
