Just thinking tonight about how easy it is to get bogged down in all the biznass. What I mean is, take a second to realize what it is you're doing...and whether or not it's really making you happy. As of today, I'm getting to do something I really love to do, and hopefully it will continue to grow into more...BUT, the best part is that it is allowing me to really have fun. With my family. And what's more important than that? Money? Stuff? Etc? I'm sure those things would plus up any great family situation if managed with care, but what I've found in this first month of being out on my own as a photographer/business, is that the small things in life really are bringing me the biggest joy.
For instance, today...my 2 1/2 year old son held onto my neck so tightly that it left a mark. Not because he was scared (though he was), but because he was trusting me to help him learn to swim. It's a moment that I'll always remember and cherish, and I'm so thankful that God put me in a position to be able to say "what the heck, yeah, I'll be at every swim lesson this week...work can wait til midnight, but He's only gonna learn to swim once"
So, as a guy just trying to figure it all out myself, I'm just gonna continue to give it 150%, but to try and remember that sometimes you've just gotta jump off a wall or two and have a good time.
