Endless Possibilities

My life is going through “transitions”. I have a daughter that is in her 2nd year of college and a son who just purchased his first vehicle (a Jeep Wrangler…aahhh). Although I have been the secretary of our Excavation business for 21 years my primary role has been “mom”. Several years ago I returned to school and truly loved it. So a few months ago I decided it was time to venture out into the world. I applied for a job at our local hospital for a position that I was very qualified for and had the recommendation of the Chief of Staff. But, I did not get the job. Another interview – another No. While I was waiting on the decision for my 3rd interview I had a talk with God. If I did not get this position than I would focus on my photography – something that I had done as a hobby for years. Well, the 3rd no came so I had to hold up my end of the bargain.

And so my future begins.

The last several months have been a whirlwind of activity. Now I am in the final stretch of everything becoming a reality. My website should be finished by my designer anytime. I originally spent weeks building one myself. Once everything started happening I realized that if I was going to take this serious I needed a professional website. So, as soon as the website is complete I expect the craziness to really begin.

I am fortunate to have businesses that would like my work in their shops and have already sold several prints. And as an ego boost I have one photo that was picked for as a feature photo on the National Geographics website. I have visited numerous galleries and boutique type shops meeting managers and making lists of what type of art would be a good fit.

If you ask me what I dream of when I think of with the future with my photography my mind goes a hundred different directions. Mainly I want to travel the world. I would love to do missions and document our journey. I would love to work for a magazine photographing and writing articles.  All of this with my best friend (my husband) by my side.

The most rewarding and difficult part has been (re)starting my blog. I blogged for quite awhile. But through some unfortunate circumstances I  chose to stop…. I have missed writing – I missed challenging myself with new photography – I missed my blogging friends. But through this journey I realized I Needed “this”. I realize that blogging can be very vulnerable – to put your life out there for others to enter into – to critique – to judge – to ignore. But I have to be willing to take that leap. So this is a whole new blog – a fresh start. It makes me sad not to have all my previous posts lined up on the side – somewhat proving to my reader that I can be taken seriously as a blogger. I am still in the process of reconnecting and filling up my sidebar with my favorite buttons.  But I will have to say it is exciting to be creative and construct something New.

Well, I can’t wait to reveal my website to you all. I am looking forward to connecting with my old friends again and excited to make new friends along the way.

Have a beautiful day!!!
