Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Louis Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein. ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Man, am I a dreamer.
I can first recall having the feeling of something greater than my own plans when I was a freshmen in high school. I knew I was created to do something bigger and better than what I was allowing myself to do. I had a sense of fire and excitement anytime I would think about my future. Of course, at that time, my plans were to live in New York renting a loft, all by my single independent self. Six years later, I am living in Baton Rouge, owning my own business, in a serious relationship, and sharing a cottage style home with four other ladies. My reality is opposite of my dream..yet it’s infinitely times better.
My past dreams were self-focused, whereas now, I am living in the will of the One higher than me. I’m still very much a dreamer, but now my dreams rest on the promise of knowing He has each one of my desires held tight within the palm of His hand.
I dream to speak to and teach aspiring photographers one day. Speaking about the passion I have within my business gives me great joy and energy. I leave shaking anytime I finish a mentor session or just a simple coffee date with another artist.
I dream to one day live out West or Colorado. Waking up to fresh, crisp air and being surrounded by a like-minded artist community sounds thrilling to me. I dream to always be evolving within my creative skills. I never want to cease.
