Oh, Sound of Music… Julie Andrews… Growing up, these were a few of my favorite things. :) (You see what I did there? hehe) I remember watching Sound of Music and Mary Poppins over and over and over again. My mom got me both of the movies on VHS (I hope you know what those are.) and I probably watched those two movies more than a thousand times.
It's so interesting to see what's important to someone. I truly believe that everyone has time and money for what's valuable to them. I don't believe the words, "I can't afford it" or "It's out of my budget.". I translate those words into "It's not important to me." I have seen the lowest income people travel world, and I have seen the most wealthy struggle with basic needs. It's all about where you put value in your life.
"One day, if I ever make this much money, then I will give it to such and such...." was a thought we used to have. But, we realized that giving doesn't happen under certain circumstances, it happens when you decide to. With money, no matter where you're at, it's never enough because contentment comes from a sense of gratitude... in fact, they say, "More money, more problems", and that is so true.
Online, it may seem that our business is everything to us. It may seem that all we do is go to photo shoots everyday and that all we talk about are weddings and photography. Yes, we of course love it and it's our passion to be in love with photography and our clients; however, there's something else that we love more and that's each other. Without our marriage, none of what we do would even matter and it wouldn't exist.
