One Year Later - Living my Dream

May 30, 2016

It’s been one year since I retired from my job with the State of Texas.  I can’t believe it’s been that long!  It was one of the scariest things I ever did.  Lots and lots of prayer finally gave me the guts to do it.  My plan was to try to make a full time job out of my photography business plus I had a lot of other ideas I wanted to try.  I told Timmy “Give me one year to build this business.  If in one year I’m not making any money I’ll get another job.”  Timmy always supports everything I do and replied “That sounds fair”.


My photography dream included opening a studio.  I also wanted to sell lingerie.  My original plan was to buy a building or a house to work out of but as you know, real estate is sky high in Victoria right now and the prices scared me.  I’m quite a chicken and taking risks terrifies me.  I just couldn’t step out that far.  It took me a while to even commit to renting a space.   I hated the idea of fixing up something that didn’t belong to me but I got lucky with my little building that only needed cosmetic updates.  I love my little building.  It’s so perfect for me.


Here we are one year later.   I’m busier than ever.  Some days I’m busier than I want to be!  My photography business is steady.   My dream to sell lingerie has grown into a boutique that caters to brides.  I’m really proud of it.  My studio is wonderful – I love being able to serve my clients in such a pretty place.  I couldn’t ask for anything more. 


The moral of this story?  Never stop dreaming.  Dream BIG. Never stop believing.  If you are a chicken like me then do it afraid.  If I can fulfill my dreams at my age, anyone can!  You have to have faith.   Let God guide you to your best life ever.
