Change is hard and it’s definitely scary but it’s necessary. How else do you grow if you decide not to change? Well today I took a big step. I put on my big girl panties on and walked in to my 9-5 job determined to talk to my boss. For the past few months I’ve been dealing with an internal battle of leaving the comfort and security of my stable paycheck, office and coworkers that have grown to be like a family for a world of the unknown again. I did it once from 2013-2015 and it was scary but I absolutely loved it and now I know that it’s time.
God has been tugging at my heart and pulling me into all kinds of directions of where I should go and what I should do. It’s hard to fully let go and let God, BUT I know for a fact that He’s the one in control. When I started this business in 2010 it practically fell on my lap and I had no idea where I was going to go with it, but He has made it grow far beyond where I thought it would. There were definitely moments where I was scared and doubted the power of God. I also abandoned the business for a bit to take a very necessary break. But now that God has spoken to me I know that He’s the one that gives talents and gifts and that I need to nourish them and grow them; and honestly I can’t do that while juggling a second job. God directly says in the Bible (James 1:6-8) that when you ask God for something you must believe and not doubt; the person that doubts is double-minded and unstable in what they do.
Therefore, I will be once again pursuing my photography business full time. I am extremely excited this time and for the first time it doesn’t feel scary. I know God is in control and He has my back and I know he’ll take the business even further that what I’m probably thinking right now. My clients deserve my undivided attention and the best experience they can so starting September 25, 2017 I will be a full time photographer again!
