It's OFFICIAL!!!!!! After starting this passionate pursuit of a business I could call my own 2 years ago, I am going FULL TIME as a Wedding & Portrait Photographer!!!! I'm overcome with so much gratitude for all the support and love that I have received since making this decision. This was a long and prayerful decision that we arrived at as a family and I cannot stress the importance of that. I have made plenty of decisions as a young adult, thinking I was doing what was "the right thing" or "how it's supposed to be done". I don't regret any of those decisions however I have never had the sense of peace that I have in this major decision after handing it over to God and asking for His guidance rather then only depending on my own.
It's hard. Leaving a job of 14 + years that offered a sense of safety and security. Knowing that I'm not taking the traditional path with work and relying entirely on my Faith to take me in the direction I'm meant for, that I'm created for! Speaking candidly, it's not without plenty of "gut check" moments throughout my day. But those are the opportunities for me, in those moments, to turn right to God and say, "I know you've got me, this is what you have created me for and I will keep pursuing it, even when it's scary".
I hope you'll continue with me in this journey. I can't wait for these next months to unfold and I would love to show you! ***Also, there will be some special things happening this week, a few promotions and a giveaway, so stay tuned!!***
XOXO, Mer .
