Cheryl said this about self-love….. “I believe self-love means you love yourself inside, as well as out. I always thought that I was put on this earth to love another. Truly, I was always half a person unless I was loving someone else. The older I get the more I realize that that isn’t healthy for me. And, I need to really dig deep and seek within myself that other half. I am also a single mother of a beautiful 15 year old daughter and I have to teach her that she doesn’t need to have another person in her life to make her thrive, she can be powerful all on her own!”
Where are you at in your self-love journey, Cheryl?
“I have come a long way in my self-love journey. Wish I could say I love my self unconditionally, but I find myself to be my worst critic. I have always said, with myself, what you see is what you get, but I have learned to actually mean it when I say it now. Yes, I still have a long way to go in fully loving myself and that is why I am doing what I can to boost my self-esteem physically and mentally. “
Tell me a bit about your journey.
“Every single good and bad thing in my life has led me to where I am today. I feel with every step forward, there is always a step backwards, but that is life. With a marriage, then a divorce under my belt, it didn’t leave me feeling very good. That led me to my handful of medications I take to help make me happy. That’s not what I want for myself, but that is where I am right now. I would say the boudoir photo shoot I did with Sarah was a huge milestone for me and helped me realize that I am a women, hear me roar! This self love photo shoot, I will be showing more of my body as well as wearing next to nothing in makeup, like I always do. It will be the real me, and that makes me so nervous! Sarah is one of the most non-judgmental person I have ever met, she knows how to make you feel and look beautiful and knows how to put you at ease, as always, I am in good hands. I would highly recommend doing a photo shoot with Sarah, you won’t regret it!”
“Kudos to Sarah for the great idea and thank you for the opportunity to be a part of it! Just remember how beautiful you all are inside and out!”
I just adored working with Cheryl at her first boudoir session. You can see her first session HERE!
Needless to say, I was so excited that she Cheryl was willing to be part of this self love movement. Also, I’m incredibly proud of her and and her journey.
