What does it mean to be human?
A question posed to me by @vinnbrooks
this past week @katihoy
‘s Self-love workshop.
A question that I think resonated deeply with everyone who was there, because we were experiencing & sharing in what this question & its subsequent answer entails. And I know this from the overwhelming outpouring of people’s stories, passions, insecurities, & love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because everyone one of us, from instructors, to students, to models to videographer(✋🏻) experienced it this week. •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We all met together in place where we could explore not just in creative & beautiful ways that challenged us as artists, but in ways that challenged us to uncover the layers of our self- the brokenness, the insecurities, the passions, the victories, & the failures, and to see them for what they are: being human.
As we all are. & to love that human. To love that self that gets you up in the morning, that makes you feel what you feel when you sit alone & look at the rain, when you sing a song you wrote out loud, when you create an image that makes you feel, when you create for yourself, when you challenge yourself to grow, when you choose to live fearlessly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
People always ask what did you take away from a workshop like this, & I’ll answer: I didn’t take away anything- I gave something....to myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Very grateful to have been a part of this. A part of everyone there. (Who you can all find if you swipe left!)
