Permission to Pose… A Note on Self-Care

For the past few weeks I haven’t been posting much. Now, I could say it’s because I have been really busy, however that would only be a partial truth, and I pride myself with being nothing but truthful to my followers.

A couple of years ago I was in a car accident. I was rear ended by a hummer. Since then I have had chronic neck and back pain, along with hand cramping/pain I have been treating. However, due to this pain it limits the time I can be on the computer before things start flaring up. It makes it difficult to write everyday, and take care of everything else that I must complete. It has caused me to put a lot of thought on how to manage things so I don’t over exert myself, thus causing myself more pain.

I will not be defeated by this chronic pain, I enjoy my work and my life too much. I must put my health first, because if I don’t I can’t continue doing the things I love. Here is my solution: I plan to post new articles at least twice a week. As for instagram I will be posting 3-5x a week. So, for more recent updates on what’s going on check that out. I am still learning how to use twitter but once I do it will follow my instagram postings of 3-5x a week.

Life is beautiful! I Love writing this blog, sharing all my new ideas with you, the reader. I hope to be able to reach a wide range of people who want to learn, love and find joy in the art of pin-up and boudoir! And those who want to learn and love themselves. Learning and loving oneself is a journey and a path that starts with self-care. In order to speak of it, I first must practice it!

I hope to those of you that follow me who have a disability, whether it is a physical, mental or emotional, can find understanding and love within this blog. That you can learn you can do whatever it is you put your mind to even if it means adjusting or altering your art in whatever way that makes it easier to complete your task. As I state time and time again this style of photography is open to all; it is mean to push and question conformity. To question those who tell us “NO”! Remember though we must adapt our tasks WE ARE NOT BROKEN! We are capable human beings. Embrace yourself completely and learn to work with yourself in HEALTHY ways that BENEFIT YOUR SUCCESS.

SELF-LOVE AND SELF-CARE ARE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS, NEVER LET ANYONE TELL YOU DIFFERENT!!! PUT YOURSELF AT THE TOP OF THAT LIST! EVERYTHING ELSE WILL THEN FALL INTO PLACE. 

XOXO,

Lara
