Life choices (Off topic)

Friday, July 05, 2013

Life is all about making choices. Easy AND hard ones.

For the past 2 years, I had been wanting to go to school to get my nursing degree. I thought that I would love it. However, the more I think about it, the more I come to the conclusion that I was only going into the field because of the money.

For the last couple of months, whenever I would mention going to school for nursing, my mom told me she didnt think I would like it. My husband also kept telling me that he didn't think I would like it. I pretty much ignored them.

I do photography as a hobby. Or atleast I did until my camera finally died on me (RIP). I was online comparing new cameras when my husband told me that I should turn my hobby into a career. At first I was like "no way, that would take a LOT of time to turn into a business." But the more I have thought about it, the more I think I want to do it. I am by no means a professional... far from it. But I know that with a little digging, A LOT of practicing, and support from my family and friends, I can do it.

I warned my husband that it is not going to be cheap to get started and he said that as long as my heart is into it, that money didn't matter (on some level.. we are NOT rich, lol)

My mom had been hinting around that she thought I would make a good photographer for a while now and she is just so happy that I have decided to pursue it.

I just hope I don't let anyone down. It is going to be hard. I need to actually work on my shots, editing, and get a portfolio together. Then I need to break into the business, which will not be easy....

Well, I think that is enough ranting.. Heres to the first steps of a new journey! Wish me luck!

    I do wish you well!!

    Sounds like you have a very supportive mom and husband. If you can turn what you love into a career, that would be awesome and the best of both worlds!
