Yes I May. {Asheville, NC Photographer}

It’s monthly resolution time on the blog again. {If you’re new here, feel free to jump on over to the original post and see what the heck I’m talking about here.}

In April I did Active April. My only rules were to work out for at least 30 minutes 6 days a week.
I also planned to take an instagram photo everyday  that I worked out.

Working out was easy. Probably the easiest resolution so far.
The closest I got to not doing my 30 minutes was one day when plans fell through and I ended up just dancing and doing lunges around the house for 30 minutes and going dancing later that night.

Now, I started out doing the #activeapril picture every time I worked out. But, that quickly started to feel annoying.
So, I stopped.

I feel alright about that.


For May:

This is gonna be a rough one.
I’ve recently, through several circumstances, come to a deep understanding of my random insecurities.

I’ve spent a lot of my life working on confidence and raising my self-esteem.
I’ve found a space within my soul that feels complete.
The longer I work towards a ‘take me or leave me’ attitude the more I realize that I have to really believe that.

My insecurities particularly and almost solely surround the way I believe other people perceive me.
As I shared these with a dear friend {what’s up Jess Hedrick} she had the idea that I do a self-portrait series embodying all of the things that I believe other people think about me, as a way for me to see them in an exaggerated manner and hopefully use it as the emotional equivalent of burning old love letters.

So, that’s what I’ll be doing. I’ll share them on the blog once a week or so, but, mostly I’ll be putting them in an album on facebook so I can share them more often and let’s be honest, they’ll probably show up on instagram at some point.

At the end of May, there’s a chance I’ll throw a bourbon party.
Because, I’m gonna need a drink.

with love and resolutions,
