  •   alamodest You're absolutely right. New found knowledge has led me thinking about what you said, actually over the past few months. Told my husband I wanted to remove my photos and start anew. It's tough when part of your job is related to fashion. @seraphimelijah 2w
  •   seraphimelijah God will guide you, don't dwell on your situation to the point that it is causing you stress. He will either show you new opportunities, or help you to do His perfect will within your current situation. May God bless you. 2w

  •   alamodest Thank you for your words. I'm already in the process of starting a new blog actually. It's spiritual in topic, with as little photos of me as possible... although it is still tempting not to put up at least a face, because there is always that human desire to be appreciated for your physical beauty while it lasts. I am not stressed out about it. I've learned how incredibly powerful stress is more than ever before. I am looking more into Orthodox Christianity right now, based on my encounter with you. There's a lot of information I am currently facing and am all over the place. @seraphimelijah 2w
  •   seraphimelijah You are welcome. Often when taking our lives in new directions, our spiritual adversaries (evil spirits) try to guide us in the wrong directions, especially with thoughts and daydreams. Be on guard, and know which thoughts are yours and which ones aren't. I understand your desire to be appreciated for physical beauty, and posting one or two photos of yourself for the right reasons can be a great way to draw people to your blog. @alamodest 2w
  •   seraphimelijah Orthodox Christianity is the True Apostolic Church, founded 2,000 years ago by Christ and His apostles. Many websites you will encounter will make an attempt to slander the church, or push their incorrect theology on you. Instead of trying to delineate the good from the bad, when there is no real point of reference. (It takes thorough study to learn about the theology or dogma of Christianity, which is one of the if not the very most important thing you will study in your life. But we need a good guide, to teach us the Truth, and take us under their wing to guide us away from bad teaching and the derailments of the demons. For it is their sole purpose to confuse us and misdirected us from the will of God.) Are you on Facebook? If you are I can put you in touch with some Priests or Monks who are more qualified to answer your questions. A good way to learn about Orthodox Christianity is to simply visit an Orthodox Church and see the Divine Liturgy and speak to the Priest. @alamodest 2w
  •   seraphimelijah For me personally, Orthodox Christianity is easily the second best thing that has ever happened to me, right behind encountering Christ. The teachings of the holy Church Fathers and Saints have answered many of my questions about God and spiritual life. I had many problems and I have found solutions to each one of them. Since entering the Church I have been given new strength to live a Godly life, and the drive and inspiration to do so. I remember the day I began my Catechumen, or entry into the Church I felt a change come over my spirit, I was instilled with something new and I felt great! Having someone to confess my life of sinful deeds to is so healing, I feel like the baggage and corruption of my spirit is being released and healed as I remember and confess my sins. The Eucharist, or Communion, is taking the True Body and Blood of Christ, in the form of wine and bread. Without which Holy Scripture says we can have no life in us. It is being infused and cleansed by the True Spirit of Christ. There is so much more, but this is a good place to begin. @alamodest 2w

alamodest In 2013 when I was REALLY into corsets! Doing hatha yoga several times a day definitely made waist trainng not possible. I still occassionaly wear corsets but as a fashion accessory. I kept my posture (I always had good posture anyway to a fault!) and trained to have a better and stronger back by doing flexibility stretches. Contrary to what I used to think, corsets actually made my back weaker by depending on it for good posture. Start building up your natural corset by building a good core (abdomen, back, and obliques). 2mon
