Can we be real for a minute? It’s a Sunday night, the weekend is winding down, the week is about to get all up in your business. And for the last year, I haven’t felt dread over these “last bit of weekend” moments… I’ve actually looked forward to the start of the week — getting into the routine of my business and my life. As an art teacher for ten years, there were a lot of “Sunday Blues”, (not because I hated what I did — because how much better can it get than to teach ART, such a dream and blessing to me in that season of life!!), but I felt those blues because I was being pulled in SO many different directions… too many directions and I wasn’t able to give my best to each segment of my life.
Teaching, #BossLady, mommy of two (now three!), wife, friend, daughter… these roles were all taking from me and I had to make some decisions to create some empty space and some balance in my life so I could enjoy my roles, not dread them. My priorities needed to shift and I had to let something go…
Working as a teacher for ten years, and building my business for eight of those helped me grow my business before I made the leap to a full-time photographer and business owner… and it gave me so much breathing room. It was the scariest decisions of my life, but the most rewarding. I’m hoping to be able to shed some light on the ins-and-outs of how I was able to make this decision… and it was not done with a trust-fund lingering off-stage somewhere, or a lottery ticket waiting to be cashed in. For those of you who are struggling with the “Sunday Blues”, I really want you to hang in there… each week brings new responsibilities, but new opportunities to give more balance to your everyday.
