When life gets you down, just take the next step!

    Yes. Yes. YES to all of this! I struggle with this so much. I have major guilt over having my kids in school while I work, especially if I don’t have an overly productive day.

We’ll never get where we want to be by doing nothing, or letting our minds hold us back. You have to just jump in and try it! I’m doing something similar with birth story videos right now. It’s scary, emotional, and unpredictable… not to mention IMPOSSIBLE to schedule. But, I LOVE doing them. And want to do more. So, I’m taking that leap of faith and saying, hey let’s just DO THIS. I’m so excited for your return to photography! ReplyCancel

      That is AWESOME that you’re doing birth story videos!! I thought about going into birth photography, and I actually was going to do it for a friend, but her labor was so crazy that we did a newborn session instead. I bet that’s amazingly rewarding to be part of though. 
      Mom guilt is so ridiculous, because YOU know you’re doing the best you can for your family and yourself. I used to read all the parenting articles about “What to do when your child blah blah blah…” And then I realized that God made ME their parent – not the Internet or the mom who wrote a book about parenting her way. He made ME their parent, and I have to trust that He knew what he was doing and go with my instincts on what’s right for us. There’s no room for guilt in those decisions. It’s all pretty much trial and error anyway. 🙂ReplyCancel
