Oh!!! Yay!!! This was a fun day. This is me working!!! I sat in my living room on the love seat. Brought over the stool from the glider and used it to prop up my feet. Then with a full cup of coffee next to me on the end table, I piled a pillow on my lap to use as a desk and got started on photos like this one below. I was determined to knock out all the photos from the Profirefighter’s Ball and post a link by the evening.
And I did! I was so excited to get them all completed! I think there were 240 or so? A lot of photos. So maybe you don’t find it as exciting…but I set a goal and crushed it. That is exciting to me! I need to do that more often.
(I love to be working. Let me state this before you read the rest. I love my job and I love working on photos and capturing events. This work is more than a paycheck. It fills my heart. And I’m blessed by having this job.)
So often I feel like I set a goal or make a promise with the full intention of getting it done before then and I end up coming in late. This isn’t necessarily photo related things either….just life. Some days are harder than other, of course and I’m sure the biggest problem is that I’m so hard on myself when it comes to all this. I don’t often share personal life things here on the website or on social media…I don’t hide it, but I don’t like to share it online either. I figure who I tell things to in person and how much I share is within my control, but sharing it online takes that control away. I’m sure as I go and blog more and more, there may be a shift in this. I may start to share more. Maybe. Let’s just say that my personal life has a very dark area that I don’t like to dwell in, but sometimes I get sucked in and it makes life hard. It makes keeping my promises very difficult.
So this little victory I had about completing the photos….it was a giant victory for me. And for my family. I’m pretty lucky to have such a supportive family.
Ok, back to the photo. IF you were at the ball and haven’t seen the link on fb, here it is again https://julielynnphotography1.shootproof.com/gallery/ffball2017 It will be live until May 2017. If you need something after that time, please contact me and I will be happy to help you. It might take me a minute and I might need reminded, but I please have patience with me. I’m doing the best I can right now 🙂
