Being your own boss lady is hard. It's the best job in the world but it's a hard one! Your business is what you make it. It's a love, a passion, a fear, a doubt, a joy, a sorrow, a journey. Owning your own business encompasses so many emotions from feelings of rejection to feelings of being on top of the world. And sometimes you can feel every single emotion in one day!
As artists we often define ourselves through our art and rate our worth on how much others love (or don't quite love) our work. We take every word to heart because our heart and soul is poured out through every photo.
But there comes a point when you can't always be in control. You can't always predict the path your business will take. If it were up to me, my schedule would be jam packed with sessions! I'd be the best business owner ever and be so crazy busy creating art. Sometimes that dream doesn't happen yet. But I know that God is in control of this crazy wild ride and to give up the reigns is the best thing I could ever do. It allows me to not stress. It allows me to focus on the now and the crazy blessings surrounding me. It allows me to say "you've got this Lord I'm going to sit with a cup of tea and wait on your timing". Surrendering my business is not giving up it's simply saying that there's someone else that's a better boss man than me and that he's got my back.
So don't worry about a thing. He's got your back Jack and He's leading you where you need to go even if it seems like He's taking some back roads.
