Do you ever feel like you’re being pulled in two directions? I feel it. All. The. Time. This week, extra. Actually, when I went to bed tonight, I thought for sure I’d wake to Friday (yes, I’m blogging from bed. I get urges to write.). Anyway, that’s how long today was- I thought an entire week had already went by. I have a huge Stats project due Wednesday that was supposed to be two weeks in the making, and well, I haven’t found time to start it. I’ve reached and passed photo deadlines and guess what else? Midterms are this week. In all honestly, I was actually blissfully unaware of midterms until I was enlightened by a friend this evening. I truly hope my mother isn’t reading this post.
I’m stressed. Stress makes me think sad thoughts. Thoughts that question where I’m at and what I’m doing. I can remember a few weeks ago my dad telling me that I needed to get my priorities in check. He meant it from his heart when he said it. I know he’s only worried about his daughter’s well-being, but at the time, I just shrugged it off and let it go. I can’t bear the thought of putting my business on the back-burner. Hmm… but at times like these, times of stress, his words creep eerily back into my mind. It’s hard. It’s so hard being a full time student and business owner. The only thing harder is trying to take off one of my “many hats”. I’m looking desperately for some sort of happy medium. Three and a half more years of this kind of stress? No thank you, sir.
I’ll figure it out. Somehow, I managed a 3.98 GPA and met my business deadlines last semester. I can do it again.
I can’t be told it can’t be done.
I’m leaving you with an oldie but goodie of my sweet client, Ava, for a few reasons. First, I despise photoless posts. Secondly, almost a year later, and I’m STILL adoring this session. Thirdly, and most importantly, I admire Ava’s strong will. I’m familiar with her persistant ways. I can relate to her perseverance. Sure, she’s only two, but this photo says it all. She knows what she stands for… which right now, may be fruit snacks and teddy bears… but someday, her stubborn heart will take her to big places. I’m sure of it.
