In September 2017 I decided to make a commitment to myself. Up until then I poured my heart and soul into my photography.
Leading up to this past year I felt I needed to create almost as much as I needed air, but then I felt a shift.
Even though I have dedicated so much time to art, I felt like I wasn’t giving myself everything I needed to thrive.
I made a commitment to myself. I wasn’t going to allow guilt to creep in, as we all know it tries to so hard.
I began a daily yoga practice, meditation, journaling, and reading as much I can. I blocked off time in my mornings and hoped the people in my life would understand.
I’m not going to lie. Change scares people! It was an adjustment. It was also one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Do you set aside time for you? For the things you love? The things that call to your soul?
I wholeheartedly believe that you will be so much closer to the best version of you if you allow time for yourself.
Guilt free time.
What is it that your heart longs to do that you put off because there just doesn’t seem to be enough time?
When you invest in yourself, not only do you benefit from it, but the people around you and in your life do as well.
