With the end of the year rounding the corner, I look back and think of all the things that made me laugh, brought me a sense of wonder, or made me stronger.
These “things” always boil down to events and personal experiences, never material items. I only hope that my kids feel the same and can appreciate experiences more than possessions, even into adulthood.
One of the experiences that consistently brings me gratitude and joy is when I’m on a client shoot, I get to play with kids and watch them grow up year after year. [Fun little secret: When I worked in the Corporate World, I’d be one playing with the kids at company parties! I’ve always loved kids.] Also, catching up with clients (the adult ones) is like drinking hot cocoa with mini marshmallows after a day of skiing. It’s relaxing, comforting, and sweet.
I can’t say this enough, I have the best job in the World. I really do.
