The “ability to start anew” was not an easy lesson for me. In 2013, I struggled in my freelance business and ended up having to take a “day job” to make ends meet. Taking that job was more challenging than being laid off from my #StaffPhotographer job at #FloridaToday, a job I loved to my core. My first day of work at #SouthernPhoto, I cried in the bathroom stall all day. I felt like I was a failure.
The next few years were challenging in many ways...the bank tried to steal my house (I won), my ex attacked me and spent 3 months in jail (I thrived), my car got repossessed (temporarily). Looking back, my 3 years at #SoPho created the experiences I needed and the right environment I needed to be in so I could create the person I am, the business I have and the life I’m living and loving today. #ILoveMyLife #Repost @thelesbrown ・・・
Life is beautiful - but sometimes it can get it a little crazy and feel out of control, or even too big to handle.
It's in those moments that you need to sit back and remember what matters most - your sanity, your health, and your ability to start over.
You could lose it all today, and you would be able to rebuild. You could lose everything you've ever acquired, but you can never lose your ability to start over, you can never lose your will to press forward, you can never lose the lessons you've learned that make you who you are.
No matter where you are in life right now, it's not over.
Your story isn't finished.
You still have it in you to write another chapter, to change the ending and make it what you want it to be.
Remember..."IT'S NOT OVER UNTIL I WIN!"
