New Year, New ___________ (fill in the blank)
I LOVE a New Year. By nature, I'm a pretty reflective person so I enjoy looking over all that happened in the previous year - yes even amidst the craziness of COVID. I keep a journal and this is a great time to look back at what I was thinking and feeling the previous year. I gauge where I've come in several areas of my life - not just personal and business.
There seems to be a trend to pick your "word for the year". I jumped on that bandwagon and picked a word for 2021. "Confidence". I made a point to be intentional about showing up with confidence personally and in my business. Most days it worked, some days it didn't. But I choose to show myself some grace and say that overall it was a great word.
What's my word for 2022? It's MINDSET. I'm currently reading a book that focuses a lot on mindset. Your thoughts have tremendous ability to shape your life for good or bad. Maybe you heard things growing up that were wrong and hurtful and you've accepted them to be the truth. It's important to choose which thoughts shape you. You and you alone have that ability. No one can make you believe something about yourself. The minute you let what someone else tells you become your truth, you've given your power away.
A boudoir shoot is chance to take back that power of choosing which thoughts shape you. A shoot is a journey that ultimately affects your mindset. My clients emerge on the other side of their shoot transformed in the way they see themselves. They are armed and equipped with awesome images to remind themselves that they things they previously believed about themselves are simply NOT TRUE.
My client Jordan had a quote from her review that fits here so well. She said, "Once Karen shows you
how the camera sees you, you find a new sense of self worth and love. Although I did these photos for my
husband, I also did them for myself."
Let me help you fill your thoughts with positive ones so we can shift your mindset about how you see yourself and the thoughts that you let shape you. Are you ready to shift your MINDSET?
