Original Photography and Original Thoughts
“Don’t wish… DO!!!” “Love more; judge less... Live more; fear less.”
“There has never been a single time in history when even a single stereotype was a 100% true. That is why prejudice is only practiced by the unwise and the impatient.”
"Not putting effort into a relationship is like never exercising because it makes you lose your breath. You gotta work to make it work."
"A real woman never seeks to impress by being someone she is not. A real woman is unapologetically herself… so that she can be genuinely loved for who she genuinely is."
“Anyone who judges you for leaving someone based on their title rather than their integrity & treatment of you... is FULL OF IT!!”
"Comedy is more than just laughter; it's both medicine & a weapon. Comedy breaks down walls. A lot of people don't realize it, but laughing is a very vulnerable release. I cannot think of another situation where so many humans can gather to be both vulnerable & happy together."
“Do not misjudge my bravery as a sign of weakness when I openly welcome new people into my life; nor misjudge my willingness as superiority when I quickly say goodbye. It takes courage & intelligence to be vulnerable. It takes the acumen of many vulnerable circumstances to acquire the strength needed to choose integrity over toxic company.”
"When someone truly loves you, they cannot hold back from showing you with their actions that they desire you.
That's how great relationships last. If they make you feel uncertain; you can be sure that they are certainly not for you."
"Having the title of 'model' makes people feel entitled to judge you & even harbor disdain towards you. You hear people mocking a model’s ‘Ugly Duckling’ story, but I lived it. I went years with an undiagnosed immune disorder that made me allergic to everything, gain weight easily, and cause both rosacea & severe acne from the allergies. I am exceedingly grateful that my bad appearance afforded me only genuine friends. It takes a real nasty individual to pass judgments on someone who is unwell, yet trying her best to succeed. That should be praised- not scorned. We need to love more; judge less. Live more; fear less.”
“When I was a young Jessica Rabbit, I was offered a test shoot from Playboy photographers to which I respectfully declined. Looking back there were many reasons for me to say no- and probably many reasons to say yes, but I instantly cringed at the knowledge that this would negatively affect my very sensitive son. I do not judge those who would say ‘yes,’ but my situation clearly did not support it. You could give me a million reasons or even a million dollars, but my need for being a loving mother far exceeds my love of money."
"Food for thought: things like illness & injury may be out of your control, but mostly you DO control what you receive. You cannot escape the consequences of ignoring your integrity; however, you also cannot escape the gifts of keeping your integrity. Always choose good or else you directly choose to sabotage your own happiness.
You don't merely get what you give; you also get what you allow."
