At the beginning of 2014 I was presented with a chance of a lifetime. It was NOT the perfect time for me in my personal life or my financial life. I was at no place to try to make a step like this and was contemplating why such a offer would come my way.
I read this quote one night on Pinterest and it stuck with me. I printed it and taped it in my office at the time right next to my computer.
After reading this over and over for days I started to see a small light come into play. But since my life was sooo chaotic at the time, it seemed like my ideas were just getting buried in the hectic everyday life of mine. I won’t go into specifics of all the crazy things life was throwing at me, but I can say I was overwhelmed.
I asked everyone around me to help me make a decision. I Prayed. I asked more people and I prayed more. In the back of my mind I thought if I could ask enough people what they thought that would validate an answer to what I wanted to say but couldn’t say. Until one night. I decided to just make a decision. This was hard for me. Not because I don’t know how to make a decision but because this decision was gonna be one of the hardest challenges I gave my self to create and succeed in.
You have heard the saying “It is much more difficult to judge yourself than to judge others”… Well that is me.
I am pretty good at trying not to judge others. But Me. Little o’me… I judge harshly. Not sure why, but I do. This brings me to this review of my 2014 year.
This one saying has pushed me beyond my comfort level. It has made me reach for things beyond anything I ever thought I could do and I am SOO Happy I did.
In January of 2014 I took the step in opening my own photography studio. I have owned businesses before, But this one was special. This one was mine. Riding on me, On my talent and knowledge of an art that is lost in a world driven my media.
HOLY COW! It has been a ride!
My doubt has held me back many times but I am glad I was able to take the chance in moving forward with this one. NOW TO TODAY.
2015 is a new year. A New Me.
I turn 40 this year and my goals are way beyond anything I placed in front of myself last year.
I have Personal and business goals that once again will push me to limits I have not seen.
One of my 1st. It is a 2015 52 week Photo challenge
I have tried these. I started strong, then got caught up in life and fell off the band wagon. Since I am putting it out there for others to join I figured It would help me stay on track and be committed.
This year I am doing it to be a better blogger. A better photographer. Better at consistency and to interact with others.
So I hope you can join me in this new venture of life. It will be a interesting one.
