Taking That Leap of Faith for 2012!
I'm excited. I'm scared. I'm happy.
I just can't wait!
2011 was an amazing year for me and for my business. I've learned more than I would have ever imagined, but I'm definitely not done yet. There is still so much to learn about photography, about business and about life. I'm excited to start this new year as a full time photographer. That's right.. FULL TIME. I've finally taken that leap of faith I've always wanted to take and quit my day job. Bye, bye waiting tables... it was a good run. I've met some amazing people and life long friends along the way, but it's time to fly. I'm ready to grow within my business, I'm ready to learn.
Being completely honest, I'm scared. Scared I'm going to fail. It is my worst fear to think that maybe I can't do it. There are times when I feel defeated, but I have to remember to tell myself that it's a learning process. Everything happens for a reason, and I will continue to learn and grow from the mistakes I make.
I'm happy, actually I'm ecstatic. I'm following my dream of being a photographer. How many people actually get to do something they completely love everyday? It's crazy to think where I started and where I'm headed now. I always thought I would go with my back up plan and become a teacher. That's where I was headed my first two years of college, but decided that was not what I was set out to do. It took me a really long time to actually realize that I could do this. I can make a living and be happy. It's amazing, but I have to say it would not be possible without the support I have from my family, boyfriend and friends. They push me to be better, and they pick me up when I'm down. Thank you for being there for me every step of the way!
Here's to a new year!
I wish you all health and happiness in 2012 and all the years to come<3
