Clap on!

I've been thinking about this post for a week.  The reason behind this post happened a week ago.  I had a wonderful photo shoot with Photography Anonymous.  I absolutely love to talk with people and just have a good time with life.  I am one of those people that doesn't meet a stranger.  Well, I wanted to try something different for one of my outfits and I did.  The thing that threw me off was when my photographer told me be sexy.  



I have to admit, he tried to talk me through it, but I just couldn't find it in me.  Well, I did later, but it wasn't until I got to the end of my shoot.  Here's the thing - after I thought about it, I realized that I am still holding on to some damage that happened to me 10 years ago.  

I have an ex that was, in my opinion, just mean.  It was nothing for him to belittle me about my size.  I even remember him calling me a tank.  The funny part is, I was smaller then, but still plus size.  I remember us being out and he would look at me an…

Nothing to hide - part II

Remember the rude photographer from last night, well he struck again.  As much as I would love to post his response and my response to his response, it was really long and I really don't want to get into that madness anymore.  However, at the end of me sending the email, I blocked him from all social networking accounts and even my email.  The funny part is that he blocked me from sending him a response on the site he found me on so that's why I had to find his email.  He made it easy, it was on his business page.  LOL.  Dummy.  

So, I spoke my peace.  I have never in my life been attacked on social media.  I guess that I should use this as practice for the next time it happens because I am sure this will not be the last time.  But, I actually feel sorry for him and his business.  Does he think that making people feel bad about himself is good for business?  If I was mean spirited, I could make his life a living hell.  However, I chose to pray for him instead.  In fact, I even …

Nothing to hide

I know that God is working with me because someone sent me a message tonight that could have caused me to explode.  I said my peace, but I didn't cuss.  I just said what I needed to say and left it at that.  But, here is what this person does not know about me - I love to write.  I write about things that happen to me, so of course I would use this person as a topic for tonight.  

I don't know if you have noticed it on twitter (follow me using the link on the right hand side), but I had a moment of posting some photos that I had during a recent shoot.  I am proud of those photos and it took me a long time to get to a place where I would even think about sharing myself with the world like that.  No one knows my struggle with being plus-size and each one of us struggles with it differently.  So for someone, who doesn't know me at all, to come at me in such a stupid fashion, yeah, it got to me.  Did it hurt my feelings?  Yep, briefly.  I don't know if this person was tryin…
