The Awakening - An Epiphany of Sorts

One day last week I had an awakening and it was like nothing else I have ever experienced or felt.

Have you ever experienced a feeling of not being where you are supposed to be or you are not where you belong? Well I experienced that exact feeling yesterday and it was an incredibly strong feeling that I couldn’t seem to shake. I was at my full time job and it just hit me like a ton of bricks.

I have had a plan in my head for some time now about making the jump to photography full time from my corporate job but yesterday it struck me like a bolt of lightning that I have to make that jump and soon.

Now this could have something to do with the fact that I just returned from an amazing two week holiday in Europe and the UK. Could it be a result of some recent conversations I have had with some friends and family that have or are going through the exact same thing as I am right now? I am sure all of these are contributing factors not to mention the fact there have been some recent developments which have caused me to do a lot of thinking about my “career”.

Whatever the reason for this epiphany, I feel I have got to finally stop talking about making the jump and actually take that leap once and for all. I have to make this dream of mine happen because nobody else is going to make it happen for me. I know I will have the help I need and of course most importantly a support system which is a necessity when doing something like this. I have decided that NOW is the time to make it happen. Carpe Diem! I have received the proverbial kick in the ass I needed to finally make me do this.

Let me tell you, I am so excited and have never been so amped up about doing something as I am at this moment in time. My day of reckoning has arrived and I am psyched about bringing Visuphoria Photography to the world.
