Small Town Beauty | Model | Southern Pines, NC Photographer

Took a drive out to Southern Pines a few weeks back to photograph this beauty again. Alisha is a natural beauty inside and out. She's a joy to photograph.

That being said, I wanted to continue on my campaign of helping you see the beauty within yourselves. You and only you can feel comfortable in your own skin. Yes, not every one will agree with how you hold your own, but they don't matter ... I'm serious, they don't.

Think about it, how is anyone going to respect and follow your lead if you don't even respect yourself? Isn't it hard to go day to day hating the way you look, feel or what you do? Wouldn't it be easier to actually be happy? I mean, truly happy?

I'm constantly in a struggle being of TRULY happy. I mean, I've got it pretty good. I've got people who love me, people I love, a job, a house, and a table full of food. But I'm not going to lie, sometimes I peek over that fence and try to see the greener grass on the other side.

But you see, I have to remind myself that like in my other blog about self worth, that grass might be as fake as a Playboy Bunny's breasts. <---- LOL I'm serious. People put on facades all the time. They want you to be jealous of their perfect lives. They want you to be them. That's what feeds THEM.

Why feed their hunger when you can feed your own! Embrace what makes you different. There are always ways to better yourself. You just have to be willing to work for it. Stop waining over someone else's life and work on yours. I'm not saying you should just spray paint your lawn green and call it a day. You have to really get down to the roots and figure out why your grass is a tad brown. You have to find it within your heart to love yourself.

I'm telling you, once you love yourself - everything else falls into place. It's not going to be a piece of cake and everyone has to deal with the downs along with the ups. But life was meant to be challenging. You learn from mistakes and you better yourself by not making those same mistakes.

The secret to life is that you live it moment to moment and take every ounce of each moment and drink it in. You want to be heading to the afterlife not looking back for a should of, would of, could of. You will know fully that your life was lived to the fullest and the people you leave behind are better because you were in their lives. You matter.
