I am on a journey of becoming more established in the pursuit of my dreams. I’ve been taking little steps, bringing me closer and closer to where I would like to be — all the while keeping my hands open in surrender to what’s around the corner — because, really, I haven’t a clue! That’s the adventure of life, isn’t it?! I am so grateful for the people around me who have spoken life to me, encouraged me when all seems rather dim and bleak.
Though I don’t yet have a studio or designated workspace for my floral design, it doesn’t stop me from creating and getting messy in my own little corner, my home. This is a creative place for me. It is where I create, where I worship, where I let my guard down…paint, draw, sing, dance, whatever it may be. It’s a haven for me, where I am completely myself and there are no expectations from anyone else.
As much as I would like to jump ahead, to be established, to have my own little flower space to work out of, I am content. I don’t despise the day of my small beginnings!
I am learning now that dreams unfold so delicately overtime; they are fluid and become as we become. I am learning patience in the process of waiting, faithfulness in the small things, and contentment in the wee steps that I take–the accomplishments so tiny only I can see them. But they are there!
A few weeks ago, Corynn Fowler, a new friend and extremely talented photographer came to my home and photographed me as I worked. I am so blessed by Corynn and the gift she has shared with me. That girl is on fire!
Here are some of Corynn’s beautiful photos that she so graciously shared with me. View her work here ! She is such a pleasure to work with!
Again, I am so excited to work with other artists over the winter months and see what comes of it all!
Hope everyone is having a week of fullness and rest, and all the good stuff.
