One Step at a Time

Do you ever see people around you doing amazing things and think “well, that’s just part of their personality, they’re super bold and outgoing.  I could never do that”.  Oh my, I have these thoughts a lot.  I tell myself that I can’t do things because I don’t know how.  And I don’t even know where to get started or who to ask.

But once there was a time when I had never planned a wedding.  At one point I had never emailed another vendor.  There was a while when I never planned a photo shoot.  And at one time I had never written a blog post and The Day’s Design’s website didn’t exist.  But somehow I figured it out (right, wrong or otherwise!)

I was thinking about all of this this morning as I’m gearing up for Easter and then a busy week ahead of that.  I started to panic, as I often do, thinking that my designs might not work out or something could go wrong.  Both true points.  But I have to start somewhere.  If I never move forward because I’m scared of the results, then I’ll just be left standing still.  And that just seems silly.

One step at a time.  Whatever you’re working on, just take one step at a time.

I hope you have a fabulous Easter.  I’m going to leave you with a picture from my first large scale photo shoot – I was 9 months pregnant and didn’t have a clue what I was doing.  But Bradley James Photography rocked it for me!  And the pictures are still some of my very favorites (you can see the whole feature here.)


Happy Easter!!
