The beauty behind the madness is that we are all free-thinking individuals. Our diverse thought processes lead us to have the values that govern our everyday existence. Our values lead us to raise our children the way we do, who then in turn will grow to either accept all those values, take some of those values and let go of others, or perhaps just build brand new ones of their own. If I sat down with a group of people and asked them to identify for me their top five set of values that they live by, perhaps I would get similar answers or perhaps there may be a range of differing sets of values. The point being, values are important to us and we all have them.
My values have taught me to always go after what I want, to never accept defeat in the face of resilience, because the miracle may be just around the corner. Another set of values asks me to hone in on what I want and what I stand for when it comes to my own body and it’s liberation. You wanna know who I have a great deal of respect for, believe it or not? A woman who takes control of her body. A woman not afraid of being free with her body. Not afraid to show the world that she speaks for herself and chooses to display her body as only she can. I took a few different photos and I came to the conclusion that I wanted to model myself. To showcase myself in a way that I was still comfortable, but also show my own vulnerability. I give you, me.
