Pigs Can Fly

  I woke up this morning to a cold and wet rainy day.  I hate rainy days.  Give me sunshine every day and I'll be good to go:)  Oh, and did I forget to mention I slept in and didn't go running?  Ugh.  Not feeling very motivated that's for sure.  I walked to the kitchen to get my first cup of coffee when I noticed something.  My little pig with wings.  I bought this little piggie about a year ago at Pier 1 imports.  As soon as I saw it I knew it was meant to be mine.  Yes, a little glass piggie:)  It symbolized me and my love of photography most of all but other things as well.  I've had a lot of challenges of getting my business started.  I had no money, not alot of experience (I've only taken HS photography classes) two small kids and no confidence.  Not a great start, right?  But you gotta start somewhere.  About three years ago, I was at a Wednesday night service at my church and the pastor speaking that night talked about dreams and goals for the new year.  One of the goals he (Pastor Barry) spoke about was not being afraid to tell people your dreams.  I sat there with tears in my eyes because the idea of telling people my hearts desire to take photographs ran so deep, yet I had nothing to back me up.  Meaning all I had was a lame Vivitar point and shoot 5MP camera.  Fuzzy pictures of my kids at best.  Yet, little by little I put myself out there.  I asked quite a few people to pose for me with my little camera and I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT.  My husband was kind enough to help me buy a decent camera about a year and a half ago.  Since then, I've meet such cool people and have been blessed with jobs.  Jobs that actually pay me to use my camera!  How cool is that?!  Pigs can fly!  Now I have an even better camera, even better lenses and I know I'm gonna fly higher and farther.  But, this post is not all about me...Although I know it sounds like it;)  I want YOU to know, YOU can fly too!  Start with telling people your dreams.  Open up your heart, and use your talents.  I promise it will be tough, but I also promise you'll feel alive:)  Hope you have a great day...Evie:)
