my.big.fat.bundt Dropped off keys and remaining paperwork, from the bakeries, at the post office inside #UnionStation. (I love the fact that I can walk here with ease from my condo. ️) Stopped by #ParisiCoffee for a muffin and latte. Fun fact: Many years ago I was in a north-suburban Wal-Mart in the early eve. A tall man approached me and introduced himself as one of the owners of this local coffee concept called #Parisi. He asked me if I'd be interested in being the new "face" of his brand. (I think the current model was moving away or something.) He gave me his card. I never called. I didn't "look" like a model, with my round face, Germanic eyes, and curly 'fro. I never called. I allowed my low self-esteem piss away another good opportunity. For a two-year period in time, I got call-backs for modeling and TV gigs, was approached all the time by local talent scouts, and even landed a one-year modeling contract by one of the biggest agencies in KC. I never showed up for any of those opportunities. All I could do was scrutinize myself for the fact that I was 20 lbs heavier than most girls I was "competing" against, had a big butt, and hair that everyone wanted me to straighten. Right now I sit here and count every missed opportunity because I gave my power away to others. But it's okay. A whole new path is lighting itself up as I speak. And good coffee makes everything right in the world. ️ Another funny thought: I'm nearly 30 lbs heavier than I was when I thought I was too fat to model...and I actually like my body SO MUCH BETTER than I did then. Am I "flawed"? Absolutely. Cellulite, stretch marks, you name it, I got it. But there's no pressure to fit a mold any longer. 16h

My one heart hurt another
So only one life can't be enough
Can you give me just another
For that one who got away

snappshots The camera can capture things the naked eye cannot see. This room was completely dark, minus the warm light emitted from behind me. I completely love the way the cool tones contrast with the warm tones and evoke a feeling of eerie loneliness. 1w
