I wanted ins, I ended up on my head + Trelise Cooper

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

I said on Instagram that I was going to post about my photoshoot with Trelise in a few days, well it has been two days & as you can tell by the title of this post, I will not just be writing about Trelise Cooper. I’ll be writing about some other (probably less glamorous) things too.

Today www.gracegeorgia.co.nz  the brand new gem that it is cracked 1,000 – our audience is now one thousand and five people – I am so! Excited that you all want to follow me and hear about my life journey if you’ve come here as a newbie there is one thing you should know – I don’t pull punches. And so with that in mind, you can know that I aim to be 100% authentic always. It is with authenticity in mind that I decided not to write specifically about my photoshoot with Trelise Cooper.

It’s not that I didn’t LOVE it. I so did, I loved it so much and I am beyond grateful and I am hyped to show you the images and share with you, my journey of body acceptance and self-love to get to a place where I was able to pose in front of that camera – (most of this journey you’ll see on Instagram

But, some other things happened and I feel like telling you about those less glamorous things has the potential to help you more than telling you about my glam photoshoot does. Yesterday, I took a bit of a fall over, falling is pretty normal for people who are in wheelchairs, when you fall forwards you learn to catch yourself (sadly I fell backwards so no-catchy for Gracie) minutes before I fell I was talking to my friend about getting ins with someone (haven’t got them yet) but I ended up on my head. He’d be worth it though I am sure.

Anyhow, the reason why I am telling you about this is to bring home the idea that your life is able to change in an instant, one day you can be on a really big high celebrating an epic achievement (e.g Trelise Cooper Shoot) and next something can happen that knocks you back or brings you back in touch with your limits and or differences, (e.g falling backwards)

And I have lived a life where falling is normal I know I can pick myself up, but I realised yesterday that falling back in life and difficult things happening might not be normal for some or most people, you might not know how to pick yourself up from a low – and although I can’t tell you how, because there is no one way to do that I can help you by offering perspective which is this.

In life, we have a choice we can either allow ourselves to be driven by the fear of falling, or we can have our drive be our potential – and our dreams. Even in your lowest of times, your potential is still there, waiting for you to act – and sometimes falling can be fun. Just ask Jesse James. 

You choose what your drive is and sometimes you might be pulled off of a high and given a low, but that’s life – and through it, all your potential remains let that drive you – not fear if you do that it won’t stop you from falling. But it will give you the bravery to get up.
