my day yesterday was pretty awesome. i was productive and got the things checked off my list. after an awesome lunch time workout, i headed home and got ready and grabbed my camera and out the door i went for my last engagement session for awhile. of course with the new time change it was pretty early in the day but that made it even more exciting because it was something different. when it comes to change … i don’t know quite where i stand because sometimes i love it and other times i’m such a routine person that is drives me bonkers.
the engagement shoot was awesome and i can’t wait to share with you all of that and afterward i did a bit more shooting … gun style. also another pass-time favorite of mine. dinner, editing, and spending some time with my niece and nephew. happy day. this morning i woke up and am determined to have a happy day again because … well … i just like happy days better. BUT, yes but … i have some things laying on my heart today pretty heavy. Like i always do, i start my work day with emails and social networking. i right away learn that a family friend has passed away and immediately pray for his wife and very young daughters. then my morning checking the social world turned into a morning with annoyance. i don’t know why but just annoyed with what i like to call, the hudsonville bubble. i hear things being said and adults spreading rumors and stories about teenagers and i just can’t stand it. in high school i NEVER was apart of the bubble and really strived not to be and still do. so note to those people reading this, please grow up and leave me out of the bubble. i am happy in my bubble with my family and friends. haha. i then go on and check a few more emails and it leads me to a photographer from california that i have always loved and followed. i go to her blog and read that her husband was just diagnosed with a brain tumor [very young might i add] and just had surgery. she posted a picture of him and tears were brought to my eye. HOW SELFISH of me to be worrying about my town’s ‘drama’ … rumors, stories that arent true when people are suffering out there of things that are serious. i am ashamed.
so today i am praying hard about this and asking the Lord to be with these people and remembering that my problems are so small and how thankful i am for my family and friends. THIS is what matters in life. THE PEOPLE who actually care about you are. and if you have friends out there that need to be weeded out, i suggest you do that. there are people out there that WANT to see you succeed in life and those that don’t out of jealousy or whatever it may be but those are not the friends we want in life. be happy for people, not jealous. and talk about the positive things in your life or others instead of the negatives or things that may or may not be true. life is too short. and trust me … your days will be much happier.
p.s. i’m having an awesome day now too! hope you are too!
