I choose to celebrate my sparkle, and accept that I can still shine even in my darkest hour. An unplanned shoot, fate brought me here as I sought solace amidst personal struggle. This moment allows me to see my authentic self again. We can all be so hard on ourselves, but somehow the chaos of life simply becomes confetti, and you become you the real you again…your childlike self…with all the hope and promise you once had…it’s a truly beautiful thing to find that you still exist in that way. In a tornado of turmoil, you can still find hope, and I choose to celebrate life’s random ability to gift you with people along the way who guide you and help you stay true to yourself. My sparkle is the best thing about me, and I never want to lose it again…and because of this, I never have to.
