i am determined. determined to succeed. i will not give up. as most of you probably know i am now home. i had to leave school because of my health problems. not gonna lie, i was not happy. i was ready to finish the semester and come home in may. but that is not what God had planned for me. so for now, i am going to be home.

but while i am home, i am determined not to just sit around and feel sorry for myself. i want to take this opportunity that God has given me to grow in my faith and grow in my photography. i want to grow closer to God. i know that He put this into my life for a reason. i believe that He has given me this trial in my life to grow me closer to Him. i want to be a better Christian. i also want to get better in photography. i am bound and determined to not just be "another photographer" but to stand out, and make a name for myself in this photography world. i want to excel, and move forward with my business. i want to be able to use the talents and abilities God has given me. i want to grow.

of course, i can't do any of this on my own. i can't do anything on my own strength. it is virtually impossible. i need to rely on God for this. this is something that God has been showing me. i am the type of person that will try to do everything on my own, and not give it completely up to God. obviously this gets me nowhere. i have really learned this with all my health problems recently. i always need to give everything to Him, and rely on His strength. because if i don't, i will get nowhere.

i just wanted to pour my heart out. i don't want to be a fake. i want to be real with you all. and i invite you to join me on my journey that i am just now starting on. a new chapter in my book. a new part of God's plan for my life. and with God's help, i am determined to succeed.


  1. praying for you! you're going to learn so much during this time :) The Lord will give you the desires of your heart, and if you desire Him, your relationship with Him will be strengthened. "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you." =)

  2. You can do it : ) In the great words of Winston Churchhill, Never give up. Never, never give up!
