We Interrupt This Broadcast...

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this message.

I was inspired today by a blog post by Emily Grace.  It was all about stepping out of your comfort zone.  If any of my lovely followers have read her post, you know what I'm talking about.
The point is, I, like Emily, am an introvert some times.  I'm very comfortable around the people I know, but I freeze up around people I don't.  But even when I'm around the people I know, I don't know how to tell people what I want. 
This might not be such a bad thing, but I'm a photographer.  If I'm ever going to go pro, I'm going to need to tell people what to do, what I want, talk to them.  I'm going to need to step out of my comfort zone!  Let me tell you... that is scary!

No wonder I only ever take pictures of flowers.

Hopefully you'll be seeing some more "people" posts.  Not just flowers and animals.  I, with God's help, am stepping out of my comfort zone.  Taking that leap of faith.  It may be scary, and I'll probably cry after every photo session, but I'm going to do it!  "I think I am ready to go pro," even though "it's not that easy." (For all you Nacho Libre fans).

Wish me luck!

Thank you Steph! I am just so shy... I'm sure you've noticed since t took me like 7 years to actually make friends at church. But hopefully I can come out of my shell!
Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I really appreciate it! :)

I completely understand! I'm shy too and I hate it too! I'm ok at church but it's hard to be more outgoing at school! But you'll get there! :). And hopefully me too.

PS my dad used to be more shy than me and you know how he is now! Lol.
