“So that day, standing on the beach, teaching Rachel about cameras, shutter speeds, apertures and ISO, everything came full circle. She was literally holding a mirror up in front of me.
I saw the images, and parts of me cringed. Not because they were bad. Frankly, they came out gorgeous (in my own opinion) but all of my flaws are so apparent in them. The things I severely dislike about my own body, not to say hate, is right there for everyone to see. There is no hiding. And I have been trying to hide for so long. “
“Being kind to others is incredibly difficult when you are hurting inside. Treating the cashier at the store to a smile and some light conversation, or even a ‘thank you’, can be so very hard when all of you is hurting and aching, when you feel like you are just a shell and that you have lost purpose and meaning.
When we are hurting, we have a tough time caring about anything else but the hurt that are eating at us.

And who knows, maybe, just maybe, these steps can help someone else who is equally scatter-brained and who needs some much needed motivation to start loving themselves again.”
