What A CITY view

I had a shoot this week in one of the towers down town.
I was a little nervous, to say the least, as "This hick West Texas GAL"
entered a building full of executives, and stock brokers.
I was doing a shot of members around their boardroom table
(not at all my usual thing) haha..
I can just tell you
that all my nerves walking in....were squelched within minutes.
WHAT wonderful, kind people I met in their office.
From the man at the front door, to the unbelievably sweet women in the office,
and I must say.... even the stock brokers themselves
were just real people
with hearts like the rest of us.
We giggled, looked important, and laughed out loud all at the same time.
I was so thrilled that I had stepped out of my comfort zone
to do this shoot.
It is so true what they...
Everyone who walks through your life
can teach you something
(if you let them!!)
I truly had a grand time and will from this day forward
have a different perspective about stepping out of my comfort zone.
As I left the office building...
I couldn't help but shoot a few of the amazing things
standing right there in front of me...
I've passed by some of these buildings many times....
But something about the new found feeling of freedom from the normal
had me looking at things in a whole new way!
May we all dare to adventure out of our comfort zone..
The fear of failure is always hiding underneath the surface,
however it's up to us whether or not we listen..
So my friends....
Do something soon that you didn't think you could....
You'll be amazed at the buried strength you carry within
(it's just waiting for a reason to shine)
