Some photographer friends & I are taking part in a monthly challenge, a chosen quote, and a picture that we feel describes that quote. You’ll see this on the 15th of every month, here on my blog. Enjoy!
“Having courage does not mean that we are unafraid. Having courage and showing courage means we face our fears. We are able to say, ‘I have fallen but I will get up.'” – Maya Angelou
Life is alot like that quote, isn’t it? It’s not sunshine and roses every day. We all have days during which we must face our fears, that we must push them down, and believe we can do it in spite of being afraid, in spite of intimidation. When I started my business, being in front of a camera (vs being the photographer!), making huge life decisions; these things make me afraid, but they do not mean that I stopped. Pushing on and ahead every day. And here, nearly 4 years later, I see the huge growth of my business, and the personal pride I can take in knowing that I have built a wonderful business, and life, in spite of any fears or intimidation’s, and that I succeed at it every day.
