Good morning! I’m stuck at home all weekend as I have a 6000 word assignment due for my Masters on the 16th. Good news is I can just wear my pajamas all weekend 😅
I’ve really struggled with my MA this semester. My mind wouldn’t focus on any of the reading and no matter what I did, I couldn’t motivate myself to work on the assignment which just added to my stress. I think what my body is trying to tell me is: “you’ve been brilliant this year. It took a lot of strength to rebuild yourself and you did that. But it’s time to stop now. You need to rest”.
So, I’ve broken the 6000 words into baby steps, a few hundred words per day. And I’m talking with my lecturer on Monday about taking an intermission before starting my dissertation. At first it felt like failure, like running away from something because it was difficult. But, I think true strength comes with a certain degree of softness - knowing your limits and knowing when to put the heavy weight down for a bit without shame.
Have a lovely weekend!

I’ve been a photographer for a little over 5 years, but found my love for boudoir photography in the last year.
One of my favorite things to do, to not only constantly work to get better, but to empower myself, is self portraits.
Today, I was feeling a little body conscious, so I took out my camera and took a few shots.
The picture it self made me fall in love with me again and feel like a strong powerful woman.
And being able to edit it, helped me to fine tune my skills.
Practice makes perfect right?
If you’ve been thinking about an empowerment shoot, I say do it. It’s fun and I’ve found it helps me feel comfortable with any state I’m in.
Self love is the best love. ...
