“Tension is who you think you should be.
Relaxation is who you are.”
Regina Muses: As an artist, as a woman and as a human being I struggle to stay grounded and content with myself and not give way to the expectations crowding in on me. I hear the voice that tells me I am not good enough in every single aspect of my life. I compare my images to other photographers. I fantasize about how amazing life would be if I was thin and could wear all the clothes I pin on Pintrest. How freeing to simply let it all go and revel in the idea that I am perfect just as I am and whatever the world thinks and TELLS me I should be is none of my concern. And how many of those expectations are actually my projections? Sometimes I slip into this fear that Jay might be more in love with me if I was prettier or more adventurous or sexier, but really that’s all my projection of who I think he might want me to be when he adores me just as I am. “Confidence equals sexy”, he reminds me.
