Rainbows introduce us to REFLECTIONS of different beautiful possibilities… ~Aberjhani
In the past few months I feel like I have hit a creative block. I haven’t felt the pull to pick up my camera. I think about it constantly – why am I feeling like this? when will I be ready? where do I start? when will be the first day of feeling it in my heart again? If I am completely honest with myself, I guess I know why. I haven’t been able to balance being a mother, wife, teacher, creative, and photographer. Something had to give. And I chose to give a little more to my family than to to create. I needed that and so did my family.
I have been feeling the drive to create getting stronger. I like having a voice and sharing my perspective on life. I love documenting my kids. Not in perfection but in who they are everyday. I look back through my photo files for the past several months and there are so many moments I didn’t capture. It makes me sad. But that sadness is what motivates me to get back to capturing those important moments. Those fleeting moments that will be gone before I can even blink.
So, I think it is time to pick up that camera again and make the balance between life, love, family, and creating work.
Often times the brightest rainbows follow the darkest rainstorms. ~Unknown
