So I’ve been a little behind in my blogging lately, so I just wanted to quickly try and catch up. Recently I did a shoot with Howard from Camtography. We wandered around in construction site and frolicked in a pond/waterfall. It was a great time. If you’re in the Edmonton area, give him a shout, he’s definitely on the list of people I’d recommend you work with!

“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”
― Chuck Palahniuk,
I’ve recently subscribed to the “Brave Girls Club” online and I was reading a blog from them this morning and I thought Id repost this part of it.
“It takes practice but we must just remember that we are not here to impress others, and others are not here to impress us. We only have control over our own lives and our own emotions, and once we make peace with ourselves and make friends with ourselves, and learn to protect all of the tender parts of our souls, there really is just not much that can shake us. We also learn that anyone who WANTS to hurt any part of us really does not belong in our life and because we are friends with our own self, we simply do not allow it.”
I really thought that was powerful and it sometimes something I really struggle with.

Day Eight: Three turn-ons.
-A willingness to apologize
-Willingness to take care of me when I’m sick
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” ― Marilyn Monroe
This is ultimately one of my favorite quotes.
“Most people carry that pain around inside them their whole lives, until they kill the pain by other means, or until it kills them. But you, my friends, you found another way: a way to use the pain. To burn it as fuel, for light and warmth. You have learned to break the world that has tried to break you. ” ― Lev Grossman
This is perfect for us masochists of the world. I feel this really suits me.
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.” ― James Baldwin
