I was texting with a sweet friend yesterday when she said something that gave me a little lurch in my stomach. We were chatting back and forth about booking clients, and she was nervous after sending off her pricing to a potential bride that they wouldn't respond. Should she follow up? Or should she just anxiously keep checking her email every 2 seconds wondering if they were going to respond?? #beentheredonethat I mentioned that it typically takes a day for me to hear back, and I follow up if I don't. That's when my friend said yeah, but you're the amazing Laura Watson that everyone loves. My face 👉 😯😯😯 I think it's safe to say that we project so much confidence in these little squares because we're afraid to show vulnerability. When my friend said this, I was a little heartbroken. Even though I have more weddings on the calendar for next year than I've ever had, I still have doubts and fears. I still anxiously wait for an email reply and wonder if I'll get rejected. I feel that pang of sadness when it's been a week with no response from a couple I've fallen in love with. So it was weird to hear such confidence from this sweet friend of mine! She's come SO far in this last year. And for the first time, she's booking weddings and filling up a calendar full of beautiful brides and grooms of her own! She has so much to be proud of, and I'll bet that there are some of you out there who are just like us. You've achieved so much, yet you still doubt. You still think you're unworthy, not good enough, grasping. So I'm going to give you some advice: You're path is your own. It will take time to build and grow into the person or business that you want to be, but don't continue to compare yourself to photographers or (insert the business/passion of your choice here) who've already found success. The good stuff takes time and patience! I want you to take some time THIS WEEK and write a list. Literally, on a piece of paper, write out your accomplishments from this year! Look back on all that YOU have conquered! Be proud of this year, and set yourself up to be EVEN BETTER next year! To my sweet friend, you're amazing and I'm cheering you on, always!
There's nothing better than curling up on the couch with a cup of spiced chai and these two on my laptop! Oh, and The Office on in the background, duh... #nevergetsold
