2 nights ago, I posted this on instagram…
I was terrified to post this. What would people think of me? How can I take a break when financially it could not be good. I’m supposed to hustle and not “give up”.
But then this sweet peace came over me and I knew that taking a break, doesn’t mean I quit.
No, it means that I’m listening to my body and for once in my life I’m doing something for me and not living up to everyone else’s standards.
All of the money I need right now is to just survive. I can make the millions later…
I’ve been quietly building a new brand called “All the Pretty Places” that will host my travel print shop, my coffee table books, an “inspired by travel” store and my international retreats. It’s been more a fun hobby but now I need it to support my family during my “break”.
So, I’m so excited to share my FIRST limited edition signed print.
It’s called, “Light at the end of the tunnel”
I feel like we all need this reminder right now. Our world is so heavy and we are weary and tired right now.
I took this image in Greece. I had been in Europe for 3 weeks and I was exhausted and sick. I went out to get some fresh air and took my film camera with me, “just in case” and I’m so glad I did.
I was really in a mood that day. I missed my family, I had a terrible cold, I was exhausted from a too-full schedule and I need to work but there was no internet. I was so burnt out, in this beautiful place, but I had no inspiration.
Until I rounded a corner and saw this…
And I stopped and cried.
The sun had been behind the clouds all day that day. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t do well without sunshine. I was literally only outside because we were literally staying inside a cave and I was about to lose my mind.
But then God just opened those clouds and this light spilled into the darkness and I took this picture.
I ran to this light and just let it fall onto my face. The warmth of the sun felt like a great big hug.
And then, just like that, it was gone. The sun went back behind the clouds but I have this memory forever.
And now I want you to have it too.
Because no matter how dark the tunnel friend, there is always a light at the end.
I see you. I feel your pain.
Don’t stop. Keep going. You will make it, WE ALL will make it.
CLICK HERE to purchase this limited edition signed print. I’m giving myself time to heal so I’m taking a break from photography and coaching and this is how I’m supporting my family. This purchase means the world to me and I’m so forever grateful.
And friends, I totally understand if you cannot buy, you can still support me by sharing! And check back next Tuesday for a new print!
