Sometimes a woman needs to take a step back, let go of everything she’s clinging so tightly to and just breathe.
I’ve been so tightly wound lately and in many ways that’s good. I’ve been going going nonstop nonstop and it’s fantastic because the business is bustling, my body’s hustling and I’ve been so busy loving I haven’t noticed how fast the pace has progressed. But sometimes I’m reminded, slow down, Jackie. Let go. Breathe.
I was recently slapped in the face with the reality of how bad a tight wind can sting when it snaps. So I’m stepping back. Looking in the mirror. Reflecting. And trying really hard to remember who I am, why I’m here and where I’m going. I can’t help but empathize with the high school seniors I’ve photographed recently, so full of hope and anticipation. The world is my oyster and I can do anything I want to do in it. I just have to remember to take it all in, savor each moment, and keep my sights set on what is Right and Good. Let go, let God. Engage your insights. And just breathe.
