A decision I’ve tossed around for some time now, with my own health issues once again taking more priority in my life as well as my children’s I’ve made a very important decision.
My kids are young, yet they are continuously at an awesome stage where we can go and do so much with them, where they are becoming their own little people and developing their personalities even more.
My family time is very important, we work with family everyday, we work together most days, probably good our paths only crossing a few times, if that, a day, but it’s something I am loving. Last July I took on more responsibilities within the family business and I love it!
However what else is important is enjoying our time as a family and each other on our own when we are not at work, to be able to go and do things when hubs has a weekend off work, to enjoy time at the family cottage, on the water in the boat and with family and friends.
Next to my kids, my husband spending evenings and weekends together, unwinding after a hard days work, enjoying our home, enjoying time together.
For my own health, for my self, for illnesses that, we’ll let’s face it they aren’t going away and over the years are going to demand more of my time to be healthy. Including working out, which this year I’ve made time for and I’m feeling fabulous, I need to keep it up.
What does all this mean… I’m taking more time for me. I have been putting off photography sessions and being extremely selective, no offense to anyone of course, photography is something that is ME. I love every bit of it and have learned so much over the past 6 years! However… It’s time at this busy, crazy point in our life…
…to keep photography for me!
To shoot what I want to, when I want to and not feel bad for saying NO! … Why is that so hard 😉
I’ve also been neglecting my duties as being a co-founder of the Mount Forest Camera Club, where I’ve been so fortunate to meet some awesome people in our community who share the love of photography! A priority that must become closer to the top of my list.
I am so thankful for these last year’s and am so excited for what is to come! To pour my heart and soul even more into life and live it!!! LOL pain and all 😉
Oh and to clarify I wont be selling any of my beloved Canon’s, I love my camera equipment 🙂 But I will be going through “stuff” and will be parting ways, lots of newborn blankets, an inexpensive ultra portable backdrop stand, a large grey back drop… I never have used many props, just not my style, however I will go through and figure out what all I’ve got and am clearing out… Perhaps Spring Cleaning helped make this decision as well 😉
