A few weeks ago a crutch of mine was unexpectedly removed. I was quite dependent on this crutch as most of us are when it comes to stability. Though I think since the economic crash a few years back that most of us today live in a world where stability is a kind of far flung idea. Losing my primary job, my primary income, was a complete shock. Though I look at this as a blessing in disguise.
I have been talking about making the dive to running my business full time or at least wishing I could, however, my original plan was to finish school first. I have 2 more years to go and it was nice knowing I could build a strong foundation until I am ready to dive into the deep end and be a full time entrepreneur. Well, I suppose the saying, "be careful what you wish for cause you just might get it" is really a thing.
Photography is not just an art for me it is my way of fulfilling my heart by providing something with each person(s) I photograph. Each session is a moment in which i connect deeply with someone and am able to freeze this experience in time for them, and myself, to cherish always. It is more than just a mere image it is life, laughter, joy, and release. Every moment of living the life of an artist has brought me to this and life has a way of bringing that forward and slapping us in the face, hard!
Admittedly, I am terrified of the future. I am being open and honest and letting this out so you know that whatever fears you have, I can relate. There is a light inside of me that knows no matter what happens I am on the right path and with you all along on the journey there is no reason this wont be an epic ride.
Have you had an experience that terrified you? What course of action did you take? Do you feel there was something at work that pushed you to do your heart's desire?
I'd love to hear from you. Share your story with me and I will share it with the tribe of people I hold so near and dear to me of which YOU are a part of.
