How do you feel about others seeing your body? For example, at the beach?
- My only issue with exposing my body is the initial response of having to undress into my bikini (taking off the clothes that hide my bikini) but once I have fully revealed myself to the public within seconds, my main focus changes from worrying what others think to worrying about how cold the water is, LOL. It does take me awhile (a lot of contemplating) to even get to the point where I am in my bikini, many times it takes someone else to urge me to get into the water before I even consider it. The only other time this would bother me is if I notice someone staring or watching me the whole time, it gives me anxiety and makes me feel uncomfortable ( I know people will glance ) but I don’t like when people stare. Many people see me as someone in great shape but I don’t always see that through my eyes and it makes me more self conscious.
What qualities do you admire most in others?
- Self confidence/sense of self worth, sense of humor, passionate, goal oriented, self sufficient, intelligent, overall lives their lives being who they are.
What is your vision for the future? How will you get there?
- Honestly, sometimes my vision for my future seems more like a blurry rather than a pretty picture in my mind. I know overall I want to be successful but in what ways? Well for beginners I want to see myself as a well established professional and entrepreneur, a female that inspires people, educates people, motivates people, and transforms people in a positive way (body & mind). In order to make this happen, I need a PLAN OF ACTION, something that will be my guide & steps to get where I want to be. I will need to build my social circle with like-minded individuals and those who can help build me, support me and keep me on track with my goals. Finally, I will need to pursue my goals and make stuff happen, not just talk and dream about it but actually make stuff happen in order to see things evolve. In order to achieve all of this, I will need tons of discipline, determination, willpower, self confidence, and a positive mindset with tons of focus. This will have to be a priority instead of a second thought.
Well, Friday was my birthday and Saturday I had my first fitness photoshoot. It was fun and a great experience that scared the hell out of me but I did it and I will continue to do it now going forward. I made a short post about my experiences and learning to pose, etc find out here what I had to say about the photoshoot.
Do you ever feel inferior, why is this?
- Eh, sometimes when I find myself comparing myself to others or when I am dating someone whom I believe to be out of my league. I suppose it is a self worth issue, but something I work on, but I will say, when it comes to everyday common people and what they have vs what I have materialistically, I don’t pay much attention to.
What makes you feel free?
When I can be myself in totally, without feeling the need to meet someone’s standards or their mold of what I should be or who I should be. Being myself without care of what others may think of me or perceive me as, and being myself around people with flaws and all.
