It’s Monday. The First Week of September.

It’s Monday. The first week of September. And I’m sitting at my desk in my pj’s still…wondering how the morning went by so fast. And then I look at the calendar and see Labor Day and the weddings I’m shooting this month and I’m wondering how did this year go by so fast? And then I think about my finances and my sessions booked and the sessions I’ve still to book and January and projecting and planning and traveling and I’m wondering…how is life going by so fast?

It’s Monday. The first week of September. And I’m closer to 30 than 20. I’m closer to solid than soft. I’m closer to successful than starting out. I think I’m closer to Truth than confusion. The calendar is closer to 2011 than 2009 and I’m closer to understanding that The Now is a better place to dwell than the Then.

It’s Monday. The first week of September. What are you wondering? What are you closer to this week?

    Ashley - I’m wondering when my job will get more interesting and my life will get more exciting. I’m closer to understanding both…I’m closer to knowing that not knowing is okay…
