Pink Elephant Photography Photoshoot: Sneak Peak
I have missed you guys!! I actually had a bit of a computer meltdown over the weekend hence my missing accountability posts from days 5 and 6 but in not being able to post, I had so many insights and realized that these days were simply about savouring the incredible path that I am on.
I feel so fortunate to be able to share my journey with all of you and your responses and support have been utterly amazing. I could not ask for a better fit family that all of you.
This photo shoot was a celebration of what has been a monumental year for me and the most exciting part is that there is so much more to come!!
It was unbelievable to shoot with Pink Elephant Photography on the beautiful beaches of Vancouver, Canada. The sun was popping in and out behind the clouds which made it pretty cold at times but I always feel that when I am working, I am operating purely on adrenaline and having such a great time.
I felt confident and comfortable, despite the fact that I could feel how the lack of sleep and stress over the last month affected my body but beyond the water retention and tired eyes, I could feel my soul literally shining out of me. This is what I love after all. Nothing comes close to feeling true balance and health and having the opportunity to show myself what I am capable of in the hopes of inspiring others toward a greater sense of health.
During my first fitness shoot last March, I realized that I had finally accepted myself and my body after so many years of battling, forcing, starving and torturing. I intuitively understood then that I knew exactly how to take care of myself and my body and the fear of just letting go and trusting, finally dissipated.
This photo shoot taught me that if we wait for perfection, for that time in space where everything is planned and perfect, that the moment will most definitely pass and the opportunity will most likely be missed. You may not be where you want to be physically but don’t let that stop you from living your life, meeting your friends and experiencing the richness of a given moment even if you are feeling ‘imperfect’. The reality is, whether you have a 6-pack and a v-taper or not, you are a perfect being with a soul that wants to shine and give to the world. Allow it that freedom.
