Some of you may not know this, but I am a Speech Language Pathologist as well as a Photographer. I love servicing others and found that speech therapy was a perfect mix between my calling to be in something educational and clinicial.
A few years ago, when we lived in a different state, I started my own business providing speech therapy to children. My business became quite successful in a very short amount of time. I thought running my photography business might be similar (logistically) to how I ran my speech business. BOY, I was wrong!
I am a go-getter, but I've quickly realized that after having two kids, my "go-getter" skills come and go in between naps times and snotty little ones. So, priorities took hold and I quickly started to tell myself, "that can wait."
Which brings me to blogging. Blogging is something that I should do as a creative. I tend to put this off to the back burner because I don't always have my ducks in a row when it comes to keeping my website updated, or getting my email list figured out.
I am always such an advocate for supporting others and their process in how they reach their goals. I fully understand that mistakes will be made and lessons will be learned when you are on a journey to your dream. So why am I not as forgiving with myself when I don't have it all together? I think this is something we all can relate with. We are always more critical of ourselves than others.
So, if you are on the path of dream chasing with bumps and bruises along the way....join me! Tackle that to-do list knowing it's not perfect now, but it might be close some day.
