Well… I have some exciting news.
As most of you know, I wear a lot of hats at the moment and one of those is as an employee (along with photographer, friend, full time student, girlfriend, business owner, magazine editor, blogster, sister, daughter…) and I don’t even like hats, actually, I’d go as far as to say I pretty much despise them (hat hair and all that!)
So, I gave one of those hats up today… I resigned. From my full time, secure, insurance, work in the city job.
But more importantly, I said no to the 9 – 5 and I said yes to following my dreams.
I am so proud of myself for taking this step, because I know it took guts (all the butterflies fluttering around before I actually said anything this morning to management told me that!) and I know that anything worthwhile in life, is scary. Making a promise to another person for the rest of your life – is scary. Choosing to raise children and be the best mum ever – scary. Buying that one way ticket overseas – scary… but at the end of my life, I don’t want to remember the times I didn’t try because I was scared. I want to remember, what I did try. The mistakes I made. And the things I succeeded in.
So, I AM SO EXCITED!
I am so excited to be able to focus all of my energy into my photography business, to hustle as much as I can (and hey with bills to pay, I’m sure that’s pretty good motivation) to do what I’m passionate about with my time and build something amazing.
With that being said, I have a few things in the pipeline that I cannot wait to tell you about – from photography workshops, to a project close to my heart to volunteering to Youtube videos…I have a lot of ideas. I would love your help too. If you think you know someone that needs a photographer or would like some moments captured, please, send them my details. Totally will love you forever for it.
… before I say goodbye and go pour myself a glass of wine (I know it’s Tuesday night but I think I’ve got an excuse!) I just want to say to you gorgeous, reach for your dreams. Give it a go with me. I’m going to be sharing this journey with you, share yours with me. A photographer that I crush all over all the time jasmine star noted on her Facebook earlier this week “Following a new dream is hard…and heart-breakingly scary. But BIG dreams require BIGGER dreamers who take small steps to success.” Be a bigger dreamer with me.
Love, Kylie xx
