What an unimaginable blessing. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am now that I am not working for someone else, but rather for myself, my husband, my future, and my brides. It is a feeling that is unmatched. Today started like any other day, but there was a feeling of calm about me. I enjoyed some tea with my husband, tidied the house, did my hair(!!), started a workout program, created an organizational system for my daily to-do’s and meal planning. I stayed on top of the dishes, ate raw whole foods, did an hour of social media work for Charles River, replied to all my emails, and thats just the beginning honestly. I can’t believe how happy I am just being able to take care of everything that we really need to do in our lives, and still be able to have time with Dan and is uninterrupted by work. Whew… this is amazing so far.

Today I spoke with my Bosses at my day job and let them know that I would be leaving in March. My reason is that our photography business has replaced my job, both financially as well as time-wise. Being a wedding photographer as my full-time sole profession has been a dream of mine for years. We have been photographers for a little while now but I have always felt like it was incomplete in a way. The feeling of not trusting it to sustain us is very real. It’s hard to just take a leap and go for it financially speaking. We have had many roller coasters with that, in regards to following dreams. It almost seems as if we dont feel like ourselves if we are not taking big leaps in life. Quitting my day job is a leap for me. I must say, even though the job is not bad at all, it feels incredible to be out on my own… going for it. It feels like me.

It’s pretty ideal outside. I LOVE when the weather changes and you get the first taste of spring, not a teaser. Ive got the balcony door open, bare feet, ice cold water (soon to be replaced with an ice cold brew when Dan gets home) and some Billy Holiday playin…
Thank you God for spring.
So maybe this isn’t news to you science people but I am slightly wigged about about it. Instead of getting up early and getting down to responsible things, Dan and I slept in and then watched a little movie. Unknowingly it would put me on the path of changing a few things in my life right this minute. Whole Foods… here we come.
Here is the movie. I hope that you can find the time to watch it. Let me know what you think. If you have no time, at least watch the scene starting at 1:22 (1 hour and 22 min into the film). What she has to say will shake you.
Happy 2009 Everyone.
Today always reminds me of this quote:

enjoy your fresh and new beginning.
