Looking back at the blog posts that I wrote in the past, a common theme arises. It is the feeling of anticipation. Anticipation for the future and all the good that would one day happen. I was an unemployed college graduate in the middle of the next adventure. I tried to prepare for what would come, but when it came I didn't use what I prepared for. In fact, I didn't know what to prepare for.
This past year has been impactful on my career growth and I am thankful to have made many new friends along the way. My whole life I tried to prepare to be this photographer which I thought that was the next for me in my career. But what I learned was that I needed to take a detour before I grew as a photographer.
Because of what I have experienced, I have never been more confident or focused as a photographer.
I know that I wouldn't have come to be who I am today without it. This is what I love about life, the unexpected good experiences.
Before my next season, which I have no idea when or what it will be, I have decided to prepare. I want to be the best version of myself.
I will not wait for that opportunity, but I will make my own opportunities.
I created a five year plan which makes me really excited to talk about. Of course, it is not set in stone because I am fully aware of the unexpectedness of life. But for once, I feel like I have something to work for and that I have goals to accomplish. This is my season of preparation and I am happy to continue on living for each day.
