Just 24hrs before I did this shoot a ‘dear john text’ was sent to me by someone I’d grown too attached. Someone who has been a dear friend and lover over many years... more years than I have ever had the pleasure of sharing with someone in all my relationships. 🤦🏽♀️ I was sad, more sad than I have been in a very VERY long time. I could’ve let this get the better of me, and I thought it might through the course of that day(realizing that you’re the one who had more hope than the other sucks BIG time). I could’ve felt sorry for myself, and began hating that person... that’s not who I’ve ever been so that wouldn’t fix my sadness. I could’ve tried to force this person back into my path some way.... that’s also not who I’ve ever been. I could’ve spoke ill of him with my friends, that’s no cure either.... ☃️ What I ultimately did was let it go. I let it go, & felt relief. Relief that I knew in the deepest part of my heart it was the only thing I could do. I knew that these two inspiring women were counting on me to show up (at zero dark thirty when everyone else was Sunday slumbering in). 🦋 That next morning I woke up and felt gratitude... I was truly smiling just thinking about how happy I was to have purpose, purpose that I CHOSE, a purpose that filled me with joy, happiness and success. I had gratitude that someone I inspired to pursue HER fitness goals was helping me fuel MY passion. Gratitude that another someone who’s come so far, is on her path with laser like focus to fulfill her goals, and inspire even more on her journey was also helping ME fuel my passions. Gratitude that these two would be meeting each other and stepping on the same stage that following Saturday, not only making new friends but smashing THEIR goals. Thank you ladies for reminding me that while one chapter closes I’m still grateful for the opportunity to have amazing, inspiring people in my life.
