Full-time job, gym, husband, dog, photography, church, friends, family, sleep, eat. Breathe. I’ve got to remember to slow down and take time out. But the thing is I don’t want to slow down. I so badly want photography to take off. When will it? Will it? I’m working like crazy and for what? Because I LOVE it! I think about it day and night. But there are just those times when I seriously doubt myself. Why am I working like crazy only to make slow progress. Who likes slow progress?! I’m ready to be Jasmine Star! Come on, who isn’t!?
But then there is that moment and that one comment from a client that makes me realize why I do this. I had an effect on their lives and a positive one! “They like me, they really like me!”. When will everyone like me???? Can you tell patience is not a virtue for me? It’s definitely something I have to work at. But I am learning that comparison is the theif of joy. And this goes for so many different things, not just photography. All we do as humans is compare ourselves. But my journey is my own. It’s no one else’s and I have to be content with that. But we plan and God laughs. What if His plan is even bigger than what I can dream? “But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.” Romans 8:25
Thank you to those clients who trust me, who speak kind words, who let me share in their life experiences with them, and who loved my work enough to hire me. I hope there will be more of you!
