It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
I love my family, friends, clients... and my job. During the holiday season, I receive holiday greeting cards from my current and past clients. It's just like getting a gift in my mailbox, because it reminds me how lucky I am to do what I love. Seeing my photos on their greeting cards brings a warm feeling to my heart.
When I first opened my photography business over 13 years ago, I wasn't sure I would be able to support my family. I had just graduated with my photography degree two months beforehand without a clue how to make a living doing what I love. However, through the years I am consistently reminded by my clients that I'm doing exactly what God intended for me.
Over and over again, whenever I doubt my talents and life choices, it's these friendly reminders I receive in the mail every holiday season that reassure me.
I've realized throughout my life that these reminders are what the holiday season is all about. Reminding people that you're thinking about them, that you care and appreciate them, and that you hold them dear to your heart. It's why we do acts of kindness for one another, even as simple as sending out a holiday card.
Thank you to everyone who has and continues to remind me of the blessings I have in my life, who remind me that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be.
