Playlist - Personal Development

Shit happens, and we all want to improve ourselves. The personal development part of FemStrong is where I talk about the fears, shame, vulnerabilities, low self-esteem, habits, and patterns that hold me back from being my best self. Maybe you feel it too.

After my divorce, codependence was a big issue for me. It brought up a lot of shame, and I realized that finding my independence was THE number one goal. I vowed that I would NEVER let someone rule over me in this way ever again. What that meant, for me, is facing my fears of being alone and seeing my bad habits and self-destructive patterns for what they are.  Recognizing it is the first step. Forgiving yourself for the past is the second.

Changing it comes next.

Personal development is my journey of going from codependence to independence. Loving myself for who I am. And realizing that I don’t need a man…or anyone else to tell me that I’m worth it.

hey I’m Madison!

I’m a 29 year-old divorced wedding photographer (gotta love the irony there). This is my journey to becoming an independent and badass chick, who refuses to settle. Travel, money, divorce, sex, and all the emotional shit that comes in between.... Maybe, in the past, these are topics I would have tried to sweep under the rug, but I figured it was time to stop apologizing for who I am and what I like. That’s part of being FemStrong.
