Free to Succeed

Monday night I had the amazing opportunity to attend David Jay's Free to Succeed tour with Jasmine Star. I have been to quite a few seminars since beginning my business, and this one blew the others out of the water! In the past, I have always walked away with great information, and of course, a whole list of new products to buy. In the end, I would usually end up discouraged, and wondered if I would ever really make it. David and Jasmine gave so many practical points and left me very encouraged. They also left me with many questions to ask myself: Why am I doing what I'm doing? Who am I influencing? Who am I giving back to? Some may wonder what it had to do with photography, but believe me, it had everything to do with it. I'm so glad I went!

I've mentioned recently that I'm in the middle of a very busy season, (when am I not?) and I want to apologize for focusing on that. Too often, I think we all let our businesses take over and we forget the real reason behind what we're doing, and I am guilty of that. So, beginning now, there will be some changes for Sandberg Photography. These are changes that I have been aware of but never ventured out... I feared that change. We can't deny it, times are changing, and to keep up, we must change. We shouldn't fear change, for in that change comes a molding of our character and a refining of our spirit.

It's in our human nature to fear the unknown. We fear uncertainty, but isn't it usually that the thing we fear is what we want the most? Could it be that in that fear lies our greatest desires and ultimate destinies? There is much that I lack understanding in, but I know that to overcome my fears and to truly change, I have to go beyond my own understanding and go forward with faith and confidence.

Have a blessed Wednesday!

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
