What I was called to do

When I started college I had the intentions on being in the medical field; being a doctor to be exact. I always knew growing up that I was artsy, but that I also wanted to help people feel better physically + emotionally, especially after going through my own health concerns. When starting college I figured, “Hey.. I’ll just double major in Art and Biology so I can channel my creative side and be in the medical field also. The double major thing was a fail because once I started college, I focused only on the sciences and didn't even take an art class. Well, I didn't do so well in my science classes, I worked for a Doctor, and I shadowed. What I found out was that maybe the medical field wasn't for me. So then after taking a close look at my life and what made me happy and having a few come to Jesus moments with my family. I decided to take my first art class, and I FELL IN LOVE. I found that art took away all of my stress and it made me feel happy and I knew that I was doing something I loved. So I declared my major to Art with a concentration in Photography in my last three years of school. I am now entering my Senior year of college in a few weeks and will graduate in May of 2017 with my Bachelors of Fine Art. It’s been a long time coming; I spent so many years not knowing what I was meant to do, stressed out about the future, and ready to just give up. But, I'm proud to say that I'm here now, just starting my Photography business and so excited for what the future holds. I know now that I am doing what I was created + called to do. I get to capture precious moments of peoples lives and create happy moments + memories for that person. God shows up in mysterious ways. Just when I thought I was meant for nothing, he showed me exactly what I was meant for and I'm so glad I kept an open heart to that. I am very blessed to have the life that I do; and family + friends that love, support, and encourage me every step of the way.
