Photo by Rachael Shane Photography A very pregnant New York City trapeze artist has become a bit of an inspiring sideshow at the circus institute where she teaches — by continuing her high-flying antics through her eighth month of pregnancy, and having the professional portraits to prove it. “We did [the photos] because I wanted maternity pictures that weren’t your standard maternity pictures,” Queens resident Michelle Arvin, co-owner of the circus training facility Circus Warehouse, told the New York Daily News. Yahoo Health could not reach Arvin for comment on Friday, as she had gone into labor almost two weeks past her July 26 due date, according to her friend Rachael Shane, the photographer who took the pictures. “She’s an acrobat, and she was always in the air, and I know it sounds insane but it made sense that of course she would still be flying at eight months pregnant.” Photo by Rachael Shane Photography Arvin told the “Today” show that she only had to alter her normal trapeze routine slightly as her belly grew.
- Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
- Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
- Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.
