I hope you've all been well. Chile... I've just been trying to hold it all together. I am so excited that my birthday is in a few days. I am typically the "it's all about me" "It's my birthday, do what I say" blah blah blah. LOL But this year is a little different for me. I'm so focused on my grind and building my brand that I am not even concerned about my birthday. This Friday I'm hosting a party/book launch for my very first book. I'm sure I will be exhausted the day of my birthday. All I really want is a day off. A day to do nothing. A day in a hotel with the lights off and the blinds closed. That is what I'm looking forward to.
If you've been following me for a while then you know each year I do a b-day photo shoot. This year I decided to keep the tradition going but I wanted to sex it up a little bit. For years I was scared of being sexy. You can't be sexy and be a mom and wife I thought. You can't be sexy if you don't have abs and you damn sho can't be sexy with stretch marks. Lawd how can I be a sex kitten and serve a might God?? LOL I was wrong on so many levels and it saddens me how long it took me to embrace and love me....... all of me. I only wish I knew how popping I was back then. LOL
This shoot was all for me..... a little raunchy and still classy. If I can leave you guys with anything it would be this...... Love yourself where you are. Don't wait until you drop the weight or until you get the job. Don't hold off until you think everything is perfect. It's never going to be perfect... EVER... So embrace yourself where you are and love yourself, flaws and all.
