I'm very much the type of person to be thankful for each and every day. Life isn't easy and because I really never know what to expect each morning when I wake up, when there are good days, to me they're more like incredible days. I think that's God's way of showing me that I need to be grateful for the simplest things and that I have to stay humble.
The winter was slow for my business, as it is for many photographers but I think it was harder for me because I dropped everything to pursue photography and it didn't seem like much was happening. I prayed and stayed patient and trusted in God with my whole heart, knowing whatever his plan was, it was a good one. Since spring has come around, I see an exciting journey ahead of me! I don't really know fully what it is but I am so blessed to be doing something I love and hanging out with wonderful photographers all the time. I'm constantly learning and when it comes to photography, I actually want to learn, which is a new concept for me. Hahaha! Photography is something I get excited about each morning!! What more could I ask for?!
A lot of my friends are in college and some of them know what they want to pursue and some don't. I know how frustrating and scary that is because I was there. Before I got my very first DSLR, I literally had NO idea what I would end up doing and not having a plan was my worst nightmare. Although I think I know what I'm pursuing and I want to think it's photography, I really don't know where I'll end up in five years and that's the amazing part about trusting in the Lord. Each day I wake up, I know there will be trials but I know that they won't last forever. God has my best interest in mind and that's the most freeing thing in the entire world.
