Tonight I find myself sitting at my computer at 10pm on a Sunday night, with heavy eyes, tired feet and a heart so full I wonder how my chest can contain it. I have spent the last four days working nonstop. Like, nonstop. And the next six aren’t going to slow down one bit. I can’t help but smile as I think of people complaining of how tired they are after ‘working all week,’ in their 9 to 5’s. Now I get that clocking in and out for The Man can be draining, but my schedule lately has been ridic. And I’ve loved every second of it.
You see, this camera of mine, this craft I’ve developed, has really been a vehicle for me. It’s driven me to greater plains, higher peaks and more pivotal points in my journey than anything else has. I owe so much to photography and to my business. So much that, when there are days like these, that bleed together and fill up to weigh me down and take every inch out of me… I can’t complain. I love what I do. I love where it’s taken me. I love all I’ve experienced and seen through this lens of Lovato Images. I’ve loved every second of it.
So what if I’m sleep deprived. So what if I’m majorly overdue for a pedicure. So what if my room is a mess with laundry overflowing. So what if I have to work to the wee hours on a Sunday night to catch up. I will balance it out next week. I will take a nap and buy more panties and paint my toes later. ‘Cause I’m loving every second of the craziness right now. This is my life. And I love every second.
Thanks, Camera. I am who I am and I love how I love because of what you’ve shown me. You crazy metal and glass box, You. Heart you. <3
Thanks, Lauren Bauer of JL Photographers for this stellar shot! Heart you hard, camera-riding-friend.
