I recently took my son to a horse farm in Fairview, Tx to take photographs. It was the most beautiful, calming morning. I find myself setting out for morning photoshoot adventures since opening my Etsy Gallery. My creativity is heightened and I am even learning new techniques and purchasing new filters for Lightroom. I have never felt more "at home" in myself and my direction. It has taken me years to find my place. I was so lost in my 20's, began to grow and mature right around 30 and now that I am on my way to 35... I feel more confident and alive. I was always jealous of those people who seemed to know their direction in life. I have a college friend that knew from a young girl that she wanted to be a nurse and she became an incredible nurse that works with children with cancer. I was always wandering around lost and insecure, copying other peoples directions as my own. I am sure you all have felt that in some way or another. It can be frustrating but looking back on it now I see that it was simply my journey. Every step leads to this moment right now whether we realize it or understand. Everything I have experienced, good or bad has lead me to be the woman I am today which of course translates into my very own, very personal artistic vision.
I will end with this quote...
“You have no control over how your story begins or ends. But by now, you should know that all things have an ending. Every spark returns to darkness. Every sound returns to silence. Every flower returns to sleep with the earth. The journey of the sun and moon is predictable. But yours, is your ultimate art.”
Blessings to you all,
