I'm so excited about this year. It's going to be big!
I know that I've made mention a couple times in 2013 that I was going through something, but I just wasn't sure what it was. I felt as if all these little pieces of me were just hanging above my head, waiting to fit together...or fall apart. Friends, God is getting into my life and making big waves. Last year I could feel it. This year it's going to happen. He's ready. I'm ready...I think. But I'm scared. I'm scared that I'll do what I usually do. Make all these "plans", see all these big changes coming, and just hide in the comforts of my old habits. Am I the only one who does this?
2013 held so much for me. It was somewhat of a transition. God was preparing my heart. When Steff was born, I struggled with so many feelings that I couldn't put words to. 2013 I started to see what was going on and grasp a better understanding of all of it. I gained a better understanding of where I need to go. There were times that the message was so obvious that it felt as though God was yelling at me. He sent me so many messages through the ways that He knew I would hear them. Books, blogs, many inspirational people, photography, TED talks and On Being interviews (don't laugh...God can talk to me however He feels fit to), friends, family, and YOU. I created my annual slideshow (below) of my favorite images and it hit me. God found such a beautiful way to speak to me through you. He shows me your beauty and love. He speaks to me through every big belly laugh, every wiped away tear, every snuggle, every moment of a new Dad holding his baby, every time a Mom looks at her little like they are the whole world, every new friend I make, every time you open your home and your hearts to me and truly show me your family. It's you my friends. It's you who taught me that what I want more than anything isn't to be a photographer (wait for it...), but to be a story teller. I want to tell your story...my story...God's story. All of it through photographs, through this blog, and mostly through the way I live my life. I can't do that if I'm hiding behind my old habits. I will live bolder. I will speak from my heart. I will hug you and tell you that I love you, even if it makes you totally uncomfortable. I will laugh with you and cherish you. My loved ones will know they are loved. Strangers will get such a warm welcome that they'll pass me and think "Do I know that person?" and it will drive them crazy for a few moments. I will bring all those pieces together...scratch that...God will bring all of those pieces together. I will become that woman I knew was there. I will let go of my fears and I will be. Maybe she has been there this whole time and I just need to see her.
I didn't know where this post was going when I started writing it. I knew what the end result needed to be...a chat about 2013, a pretty little slideshow, and a fun gift to you, but it turned into more than that. I promise a post dedicated to my journey. But, I can't hold it in any longer....here's how I want to kick off 2014 with you...
