“Beauty Through Pain”. . . . I’ve written a very personal blogpost about me and photography, posted it and a great friend messaged me about it after I taken it down. He inspired me to post it and be proud. To be proud. Which was my aim, is my aim with photography, to show beauty, show pain, show everything about experiencing life and how to can find beauty and salvation everywhere. . TRIGGER WARNING. . https://anthonygorin3.wixsite.com/beautyinnormalcy/post/finding-beauty-through-the-pain?fbclid=IwAR2hYSQt05Lle0Ha96QfDFUw_Cv0OnYnihQkdBy3mF4kzYIPHCcLIKYnSTw . It’s taken years to feel able and free to show my pain, to address it and as I try through photography. To let it be an expression, comprehension, understanding and empathy #projectempathy started this project a while back, a year after I wanted to, been on my mind since I started photography and is a true goal of mine. This is a deeper, more personal post. I would love nothing more than to collab with artists of all sorts tackling mental health, and darker issues that society tries to hide and doesn’t address. But truly should as it can make the world of people, can show them they are not alone, that they don’t have to do it alone. . #mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#meaning#morethananimage#fightthedemonsinside#photography#photographyforsocialgood#photographyforsocialchange#darkart#makemymark#standtall#iamhere#thisisme#thisislife . I would also like to shoutout for @danielreganphotography for being my true inspiration, I had the idea for this project before learning of their photography but always seeing their progress has inspired me so much. And especially the #morethananimage.
I thought it was hopeless…that I had let myself go for so long that there was no way back.⠀ Until a gift fell into my lap. 🎁 ⠀⠀ I came across this whole “at-home workout thing”. I was skeptical as I am with a lot of things. I’m like “nah it’s too good to be true.” ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -I had ZERO skills in fitness -and because there was also a business possibility offered as well….I was doubtful due to lack of social media marketing. -I had very few followers….so I didn’t even want to consider coaching.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -I was out of shape physically and mentally. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -At the time I could NOT afford to start….but at the time I couldn’t afford NOT to start ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -I was struggling with low self esteem, anxiety and depression….so how was I ever going to inspire anyone else? ⠀⠀ But you know what I DID have? A WHY. A fire in my soul to push me forward 🔥 If I could make this thing work, I could stay home, enjoy life, hopefully get my confidence back, and INSPIRE others to do the same! Win-win right?⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No, building a business wasn’t on my agenda…at first. Because starting a business is hard.. and having it succeed is even harder!!! BUT... my old life was HARD too. So what did I have to lose? Honestly, I’d pick this version of hard over ANYTHING. ⠀ Please note: building a business is NOT a mandatory part of this equation! What is mandatory is a burning desire to rebuild who you are into who you want to be!! ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨Moral of the story……Pick your hard and don’t let your current circumstance dictate your future✨ Message me for more info!! #coachingisaperk#thisisforme#pickyourhard#thisislife#notjustahobby#noexperiencerequired#startasyouare#startwhereyouare
Gross what’s that smell? Oh yea, the poop diaper I forgot to put outside because I was changing sheets from the 3 year old’s accident. All while running around to get everyone out the door before an 8:00 am call. #thisislife
