Our greatest battle is to become ourselves while others may push against us becoming who we truly are. There’s a lot of resistance to be fully present when working on something you love. I find that the best thing to do is to pray or meditate; this will help you get into the zone of creating something new whether it’s within writing, modeling, photography. Inspiration will come but it actually starts with our humbleness taking the space of our ego. In order to combat the fear to create You have to realize that you come from a higher source and in order to do what you love or what you were meant to do you will need to surrender and be humble. Like TD Jakes said “ We were created by our creator to be creative.” Once you rise to the level of losing yourself in yourself with good habits to create a flow of work you will feel connected to your source and do great things for people all over. Such as Steven Pressfield said, “… the difference between a Pro and an Amateur is that the Amateur plays for fun but the Pro plays for keeps. Let’s make the switch and change our habits to manifest into more creative and present beings and commit full time to our gifts and talents. So Stop thinking about you and being materialistic and instead think of all of us as united and offer your art as a gift!
Let’s start strategizing our new year right. What is One Thing that you are grateful to go through last year and one thing that you want to Accomplish this year? For me the One thing I’m grateful for is the blessings and the trials that last year gifted me because that led me to continue to strive for my passion that lies in compassion towards others. My wish this year is that we may all continue to love ourselves and give space to ourselves so that we can do better in the world we live in no matter our shape, color, creed, etc!
So Let’s continue to Be different and show LOVE to our bodies!
This year is another chance for you to join me in doing just that in a few opportunities towards self-care and self-love; from our Annual Boudoir Marathon happening at the end of the month both in DC and in Baltimore as well as our Body Lovin’ Workshops happening in the spring. Join me in living our best life this year. I want to continue to fight for our freedom to love, to be in control and live a happy life and I promise to you that you will get an incredible value for your investment on yourself when you book STUDIO PRI for any occasion.
After many years of struggling in lIFE’s Social Concepts, following trajectory thoughts and actions relating to self doubt - I had a break down. Yes, me a naturally happy go lucky girl Getter. But many issues that I hadn’t dealt with from my past made me feel like my validation was weak in root.
But by the grace of God I was blessed to have some good friends and family plant a seed in me. This seed blossomed beautiful truths but The most valuable Truth that I will share with you today is that the ultimate thing you can do for yourself is to find self-love within yourself and commit to things that nurtures you in real ways.
My daily routine changed from waking up and going straight to my computer or phone to waking up slowly and taking long breaths, kissing and hugging my family, singing aloud, practicing in being present and saying many affirmations to myself in the bathroom mirror. And yes It was super awkward in the beginning talking to myself and saying “I love You” looking into mine own eyes while both my hands covered my heart but it transformed me little by little to be more free and more in love with me and my surroundings.
Now I am free of bad vibes most days, no longer producing just to produce, giving presence and love to causes and people I care for & I’m grateful that Because of this knowledge this gift I’m finally able to truly live my best life with no regrets. This feeling is so freaking Amazing that I want to share it with the world and help others heal in a safe space that uplifts and promotes self care. This is my beautiful truth!

Forgiveness is The Best Self-Care
Stop putting all your energy into a typical commercialized Holiday and Start showing yourself real LOVE & SELF-CARE by practicing FORGIVENESS this Valentines. I know it's easier said then done, and yes I find myself lingering in victimhood at times, but why live this way? Putting forgiveness into practice will help you like it helped me to be at peace and embrace your true self. I forgave a couple of people including myself already this week for a ton of stuff because I was able to tap into my soul and let go of my ego and I found myself feeling more in love with life. I Guarantee you will feel So FLY after so Trust me & TRY IT! To help you Please check out these easy to do steps that I got from reading Girlboss' Jessica Lanyadoo if you are ready to live the BEST LIFE!
- Make a list of every person that you have resentment towards. From the big ones—heartbreaks and traumas—down to the little, petty stuff (i.e. your friend still hasn’t given you credit on social media postings for photos you took .)
- Once this is done, go through each name and breathe. Stay present with the feels that you have about them.
- Then, forgive them. When you can’t forgive them, forgive yourself.
I encourage you to specialize in being happy in this new year. Forget about sorrows, forget about debts, forget about anything that makes you feel depressed and work on good vibrations. That will lead you to the light and eventually make you glow! Someone told me to love myself will help me love others with more depth and ever since I've been putting it into action. I see wonders in my life since I learned how to truly love. And if you do this now 2018 is going to be the best year for you and the ones you love so go on and LOVE. Show gratitude And Live Life In the Present Moment! When you Feel The Love Everything Glows and You'll Glow to Baby!
