I Don't Have to Lose Weight to Be a Yogi

Yoga has taught me to own up to myself and who I am now. Not who I was or who I could be. I never shamed my body or hated it, but I'm glad to be at a happy relationship with it. I look at my big chubby body and am happy and content with it. I feel it is important to see bigger bodied people out there. When I first started yoga, it was very rare and uncommon to see bigger yogis practicing yoga. Now I am so ecstatic that there so many people who are trying yoga for themselves.

I'm an iPhotographer and Proud of it

When a travel photographer ventured to other countries only a couple of decades ago, they had to carefully pack their camera bags with all of these supplies and ensure their film was stored appropriately afterward. Today, with the touch of a screen, a moment can be captured and shared with your social network within seconds. I believe these phone photography tools can be beneficial, especially while travelling. The way I look at it now, I see Instagram as a challenge.
