It’s so easy to get caught up in your day to day… Trust me, I was one of those people. I had no time for anyone, not because I didn’t want to… but it couldn’t get it all done if I did take the time… I didn’t have control of it, I didn’t manage it well, I made a lot of brides very happy….. but I lost me, I lost family, I lost friends.. (well thankfully they understood)… but I lost sight of so much….
I told another local photographer this morning, how humbled I am… I literally would do whatever I have to…. to give back to those who have helped me and are considering helping me. I am so grateful for those with so much on their plate already, agreeing to take some of my load…. It’s incredibly humbling.
I never paid attention before… I never had a reason to… We were at Jason’s Deli the other day… and I noticed the water bottles, pink caps and a photo on them… of ladies with bandannas…. I never noticed before. Why does it take for someone to become ill…. for people to notice? I guess if it doesn’t affect you, or someone close to you… you don’t notice. Change is welcomed at any time…. and it doesn’t matter what caused the change…. but it’s just important that you do.
I feel forever changed… in positive ways… I will help others however I possibly can….
As tomorrow approaches… and as I worry about things to come… I will try to focus on the positive…
So many people are rallying for me…. it’s truly amazing.
