It’s been a relatively bad week for me over here in my neck of the woods. Well, I guess not bad. Just very stressful. I don’t really want to rehash the details of what’s been going on for me, although I would in person. It’s just too much to type and frankly, I’m exhausted. But it’s been enough to make me doubt a little bit about who I am and what I am doing as an artist and photographer.
Kind of a scary place to be. And stretching.
So I’d like to look at this week as a week of growth.
Growth is hard, huh? Usually it makes you take a GOOD LOOK at yourself and all the things you don’t like. Or all the things you hate or wish you could change. It’s never fun to go through, but in the end it’s always much needed. Mistakes are inevitable in this life. They are a solid guarantee. But the greater tragedy would be to make mistakes and to never learn from them. Or to keep making the same mistakes and to fall into a pattern. It’s necessary to make mistakes and to be stretched.
But it sucks in the midst of it, doesn’t it?
So this week has been stressful for me. But it’s all ok. I’ve actually learned some huge things that I can only hope will make my art and business even better. Can you believe that we are going into our third year as photographers?? I can’t. It’s gone by fast. And we have some very cool things on the horizon.
So I’m glad this week is over. Here’s to learning from mistakes and hoping that we don’t repeat them. And being grateful that God keeps opening doors in a profession that has never been more clear for me to be in.
And here’s to actually getting my post up about our time in Austin. Good grief. I swear to you it’s coming. I PROMISE. Not that anyone’s dying over it. But I’m anxious to post it! And life has been NUTS since we got back. But you already know that.
