Stop Procrastinating. Today is the day!

Have you ever procrastinated doing something you really wanted to do because of fear or judgment? Then (one day way later) you finally did it and thought to yourself, "Wow! I'm so happy I did that! I can't believe I waited this long, I really should have done that a long time ago! I don't know what I was so afraid of or worried about"
I invite you to stop living with the should'ves, could'ves, what if's and I wish I hads.

You get one chance at this thing called "life". It's whatever you make of it. Make it fabulous and be happy. Love yourself, celebrate yourself and be true to yourself.

Last week I met with a lovely woman who came to the studio for a free consultation because she's thinking about doing a boudoir session. I asked her why she was wanted to do this.
She said, "Well, I wanted to do it 10 or 15 years ago but it wasn't as popular as it is now. And the older I get the more I think to myself I better do it before it's too late!"

I said, "Okay, is this a gift?" She literally hung her head in what seemed like shame and embarrassment and shyly admitted to me that no, even though she is married, she simply just wanted to do it for herself. I asked her, "Why are you ashamed of that? Who are you to play it small in this world? You have every right to love yourself and celebrate yourself for who you are!! Have you watched my Rhode Show Segment on Boudoir Photography?"

She said, "Yes I did and my favorite part was when you said the most important reason to do this type of session is to do it yourself. That's when I emailed you"

"Exactly! That's the answer I love hearing the most! So, what's been stopping you? It's not popular enough? Are you afraid someone will judge you? Do you not think you're worth it? Does this make you vain or selfish? Because if so, that's just a bunch of stuff you made up in your head. What else do you NOT do in life because you're afraid of being judged or because it's not the "in thing" to do? I hope the list isn't very long or you're missing out my dear! You will cherish these photos for a lifetime. No time is the "right time." Right NOW is what matters.

You will never look or feel "perfect." Don't wait another 10 or 15 years and live in more regret. Regret is living in the past. Forget should've, could've, what if or I wish I had. Just do it! I promise you will be so happy you did! I am here to guide you and comfort you. We will accentuate the parts of you you are most proud of and position you in the most flattering ways to suit your body. This is not cookie-cutter by any means. Every single boudoir photography session is more unique than any other type of shoot I do."

I could just see it in her eyes that she already felt a weight lifted off her shoulders. She no longer needed permission. I inspired her and empowered her! She realized she's just been making up reasons and excuses all this time and those reasons and excuses have transformed her into a person who is afraid of being judged and doesn't think she's worth it. At that moment she said SCREW ALL THAT, moved out of the past and BOOKED HER SESSION!
Congratulations beautiful lady!!!

For all you beauties out there who can relate, I want you to know that's just total bullshit! You're jipping yourself when you think like that. You deserve more. Take a risk. Be unreasonable for once! Be adventurous! I challenge you to create a solution for every reason and excuse you come up with not to do this.
"I don't have the money." Okay, put $25 a week away until you do have the money. There you go, problem solved.
"I'm not happy with my body." Okay commit to diet and exercise to get where you want to be.
"My friends will think I'm stupid for doing it?" Really? Go ahead and ask them. Every single one of them. I dare you! You will be astounded with the support you will get when you effectively communicate to them that this is something you want for yourself and it would make you happy. Because THAT, my friends, is all that truly matters!
I am here whenever you are ready. Don't do it "someday." TODAY is the day. Take action and celebrate your beauty! I hope you feel touched, moved and inspired by this post. It's truly authentic and, even though we haven't met yet, I want you to know that I care about you and I think you are beautiful and truly amazing!
