Some of you have certainly seen on my Facebook page, that I sell a large part of my shooting outfits. Surely you are wondering why I do that? From many friends and followers came worried questions, but also encouraging messages. Yes, maybe I’ll fit into my old clothes soon. And yes, there are many memories of really great shooting events. And yes – it also hurts to let go of my beloved treasures. But …
… my reasons are so much more important. As I wrote in my last blog post I am working on my fitness, but I love my body how it is. It is not important for me to fit in my old dresses again. Even better: now I have enough space for new treasures and can create new, great photos with new outfits. It’s good to fill my new life with new content and let go of the past.
It is also important that you can NOT be controlled by material things. And for me, the last look in my wardrobe was self-stealing. It hurt me that they just hang around and I could not carry them. And the question of whether they would ever fit again – why should I torture myself with it? It took me a bit of overcoming to release the album, which was already set up in March, but how much joy does it make me now to see that I can make other girls happy with it.
And so I pack one package after another with a laughing and a crying eye. Bye, you beloved and eagerly collected favorite parts – I’ll miss you! But many great photos will remind me of you and no one can take memories from me. And with every package I send out, and every dress I let go, I let go of the compulsion to squeeze myself into some kind of norms. I let go and my heart is getting lighter – that’s just fantastic.
I send you love
