Growing up, I always felt a little strange. I have always been a creative person & a dreamer. A big dreamer. Still am!
I was never quite like everyone else. This feeling stuck with me all throughout school, and was amplified when I hit high school and had people begin to talk about how weird it was that I took photography so seriously as a sophomore. Ohhhh if I could show you guys all the looks and polite, but concerning nods from both kids and adults that I got when I explained that I was going to skip going straight off to a 4-year university right away to build my business!! For me, I had found my calling and I knew it with all my heart! I began aimlessly grabbing at my dream until it slowly became a reality! So much so, I never ended up going to that 4-year university. Still though, I struggle with self doubt! You too? Gosh, it's the worst! Every day, I wonder how the heck this happened and how the heck I will be able to maintain and grow what I have.
But I chase my dream. Every day, whatever yours is, chase it fiercely, despite the fear, negativity and skepticism! In the midst of busy season, I am so incredibly overwhelmed with gratitude. Gratitude for my clients, gratitude for my mentors and most of all, gratitude for my faithful Father.
Whatever your place in life, whatever your dream... pursue it and make it happen... with purpose and passion. If you don't, what's the point?! #sundaysavors
