A lot of things have been happening here that have made me not only excited but also very nervous. Not a lot of people know but I have actually handed in my resignation at my day job. My day job was my safety blanket, my fall back, my ‘if this doesn’t work out it will be OK’ job. It was a guaranteed income every month if things were a bit quiet.
The trouble is things weren’t a bit quiet and don’t get me wrong, that is fantastic but it meant I was burning the candle at both ends. It was causing me a lot of stress as I always wanted to put my Couples first and even though I don’t think I ever sacrificed the service I gave to my Couples, I just felt I wanted to give more.
My fab Couples want to meet for coffee, make lunch, have a natter about the dress they have decided on and I want to be a part of that. An invite to one of these things should be closely followed by a “hell yea I’ll be there” and now they can be and that makes me smile.
I am very lucky that I have a very supportive Husband. When I say support I don’t mean financially, I mean when I ask for advice or I’m having a wobble then he is there with the best advice in the World. Seriously, how did he get that annoyingly smart??
When we spoke about me giving up the day job he said to do it (see, smart right? ha ha) and went into the worst case scenarios linked to our lives that could possibly happen and do you know what? It didn’t sound that bad. The next day I did it, I actually told my boss that I wanted to leave and the first question they asked was “who are you going to work for”. The answer I gave was “Me!!” I am actually going to work for Me!
Man, you don’t know how good it feels to say that and to look forward to what is around the corner. The reason for my post about this today is because for the last two days I have been watching a live seminar held by a huge inspiration of mine and her name is Jasmine Star. This amazing Photographer is based in Orange County, California and is such a huge inspiration that she has thousands of people watch her seminars from all over the World.
When I look at the definition of the word inspiration at the top from the Dictionary I see all of Jasmine Star in it. It’s as if it was written about her. Now my Family might read this and say “really Nicola” but this Photography World can be lonely and when I watched her seminar last night and she said she had been very lonely, I KNEW what she meant and where she was coming from. I am quite shy (stop laughing people that know me), no really I am but once I get talking then I can talk for Britain, it’s just getting off that starting block.
So, where am I going from here and what is happening in the World of Daffodil Waves ? Well Daffodil Waves is going from strength to strength. I feel so blessed to have met and been contacted by the Couples who would like me to be a part of their big day. Some have also been such a great support and have developed into my closest friends!
I have also been asked to be a part of a Wedding blog launching in a few weeks. I’ll post more info on that when it’s up and running but I was very excited to hear and see all the plans coming together but more importantly I have got to know some pretty cool Girls who are also involved.
I never know how to end blog posts so I’ll just leave it by saying I will be posting my sample albums soon so you can all have a look at them and I am planning to make these posts a bit more frequent now. After all, I’ll hopefully have the time x
