I created my cookbook in a starbucks. ☕️
I would go almost everyday for a week or two straight, order the same cup of coffee (black), sit in the same exact seat that had the best lighting for staring at a computer all day, and most likely wear the same comfy outfit aka yoga pants and berks 🙏🏽
I would be there for hours.
Constant refills around the clock.
My mind wouldn’t stop and I wasn’t going to tell it to.
The content was just pouring out of my soul.
I didn’t doublethink or edit anything I was just allowing myself to be, and I did it. .
Planning the photoshoot was a whole nother freakin world.
I created this shoot working 2 jobs.
I created this shoot having never planned a shoot, modeled, or anything of the sort before.
I created this shoot during a terrible event(s) in my life.
If I would have waited for the perfect moment, it would have never happened.
Because if anything it was the least perfect moment to do it, but yet that’s what made it so right.
Having this to focus on gave me hope, gave me focus, and kept me above my worries.
During the shoot, I was soooooo nervous, my hands were shaking, I didn’t know how to actually smile like a normal person or what my angles were/are? Haha real life probz.
But I didn’t wait til I knew all of it.
I just did it. & I’m so damn proud of myself for it too.
We all deserve to feel this moment.
But for us to feel it, we have to step off that scary dark ledge holding us back.
And just FREAKINNN JUMP! 🤸🏻♂️
What’s holding you back?
Is it waiting for the perfect moment, not being educated enough, not being experienced enough?
Whatever it is, you’ll never be perfect enough, educated enough, or experienced enough cause as long as you want to be better everyday you’ll just keep setting the bar higher and higher.
