It's Sunday morning and I'm pondering life and sharing a thought about relationships and stress. I know I've written about this in the past, but that's the fun of going off-track on Sundays.
"Work is not always required. There is such a thing as sacred idleness."
Having absolutely no plans last night, we headed out to try a new restaurant in town and had a wonderful evening, but it wasn't just the dinner that made the night. It was simply having time to just talk and enjoy each other. While it's just the two of us, as we've gotten older, time seems to fly by even faster. Even though we're together all the time, we don't isolate enough time just to be a couple.
Many of you, just like us, let life get in the way of the most important aspect of your life - your relationship with your spouse. We all get so wrapped up in the day in day out stress, we forget what's really important.
Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
Here's my point...your spouse is the most important part of your team. It took me years to learn that. It's time to put the importance you've assigned to your business aside and remind yourself why you're a photographer in the first place...to capture memories and stop time. When was the last time you made a few just for you?
Happy Sunday everybody - hug somebody special in your life and save a hug for yourself. Put the stress of business aside. You know how to focus your camera - how about focusing on you for a change?
"Don't underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along,
listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering. "
Pooh's Little Instruction Book, inspired by A.A. Milne
