Lately I’ve been feeling like I took some happy pills (I did not :)) and I’m on a constant high of emotions! It must be the spring fever, the gorgeous sunlight that awakes me bright and early every morning, my fantastic friends, my loving family, my spontaneous adventures…. but above all that, I think it’s the fulfillment I feel because I’m finally living my dream, I’m living a life I’m proud of. I remember vividly the days I spent at my previous job, in a big multinational corporation, doing a big and responsible job, which I was honored to have but which made me utterly unhappy. I remember waking up every morning feeling like I don’t wanna get out of bed, I wanna sink into my pillows, hide from the world and just lay in a fetus position. What a change the last year has brought!
I have difficulties sleeping lately, but not because I’m stressed or have too many things on my mind, but simply because I’m excited for everything that I have ahead of me and I cannot wait to jump out of bed in the morning! Becoming a full time photographer has been the hardest, most fulfilling and most exciting adventure I’ve ever been on. I’m loving all my awesome projects, shooting my amazing clients (most of whom become instant friends), I love editing their pictures and I love connecting with other photographers and wedding industry members! I also have been focusing on doing exciting, new and adventurous things in my free time lately and I’m happy. I don’t know if I’ve ever been this happy. My life is not perfect, not at all, but I choose to look beyond the imperfections, believe that everything happens for a reason and trust and know that everything will fall into place and right now, everything is exactly as it should be and I’m seizing the day. (oh the power of positive thinking! ;))
Making a jump, realizing your dream and than traveling on the rocky path of making it happen is not easy…. but than again, nothing worth having comes easy right? People tell me that I was brave, that I did something most people wouldnt have the courage to do (changing career paths and deciding out of thin air that I wanted to become a photographer) but I disagree… anyone can do it! ANYONE…. you only live once but if you do it right, once is enough! 😉 (sorry, I think I’ve spent too much time on my Pinterest quote board lately ;)) I guess what I’m trying to say is this… CARPE DIEM! Live your dream! What is the worst thing that could happen? You could fail. But wouldn’t you rather fail than never know if things could have worked out?
