If someone would have told me a year ago that at this moment, I would be living out in the country, building my business, and fulfilling some dreams, I would told them they were crazy.
Time. It’s funny how it passes yet stands still and overcomes you like a tidal wave. My photography business is booming, and for this I am so thankful. I am also learning how to juggle time to build said business and also be the wife and mom that my husband and kids need. As you may be thinking, it’s a LOT of balance, and I am choosing the simple route for most things. I’m forgetting the stuff that doesn’t matter and saying yes to the moments that do. Unfortunately, everyone around here still likes to eat dinner, so I am not quite getting out of that one *wink*.
Time is teaching me a LOT these days.
For over two years now, I have felt like I was on the verge of something big. Something bigger than I could imagine, and I couldn’t pinpoint it. I started writing things down, redid my space here on the internet, invested time and some money into my business, and yet, still nothing. It didn’t come to me right away. I kept practicing my photography, writing, getting things organized, brainstorming with friends, and nothing never really stood out. It was pretty discouraging, working toward a goal that I wasn’t even clear about.
Then it hit me.
Maybe practicing was the goal. Maybe sharpening my skills and my life balance was just part of this equation that I didn’t know the answer to.
Maybe the answer would never come.
But I can tell you that finally, I am enjoying the ride rather than trying to figure out where it’s taking me.
