Wild Thoughts

First off, I apologize for being MIA the past week or so. Been going through some things and just been relying on God - praying - taking things how they come. I will get caught up with e-mails, comments, etc...hopefully SOON! Thank you all for the amazing birthday wishes. You guys are so sweet. I'm so thankful for each and every one of you. <3

I have some wild thoughts. Well, not too wild. I've thought about it before. But now am completely serious about doing it.

I love my life. I truly do. As a person, I have things I need to work on - that I am working on - and plenty more that I will do. That is where I am doing some serious relying on God. I have faith that it will all be okay - and I know it will - He never fails us. Never leaves us.

So - imagine this...I find a way to make the same amount of money I'm making now and TRAVEL. I do have some savings that I could use to travel with. I don't spend money very often...I usually save, save, save. Not that I have a lot. But better than nothing at all.

What if I do all kinds of freelance to make it? It would just be hard- the type of freelancing I'd want to do, wouldn't necessarily require a contract. I would need to figure out how to be sure I am consistent with making X amount of money every month to still be able to pay my bills.

The type of free lancing I would want to do would be graphic designs and photography. YES - photography. I want to do emulsion lifts. I am working on getting a Polaroid camera fixed, along with the proper equipment to make these emulsion lifts. This type of sales...nothing would guarantee I make X amount of money per month. I am praying that it comes to me.

I enjoy traveling so much. But how would I fund it and still be sure my savings weren't affected too much? And that I can pay my bills.

There is so much I could do with the experience. And certainly, so much that I would learn...that would help me grow as a person and just find myself.

This turned into a rambling post, of sorts. But just wanted to get it out. Especially if any of you have any thoughts for me. Or feedback.

Through it all, I will be praying. A lot. But it feels good to just my thoughts out...written. <3


  1. I think you should go for it! and I love random blog posts. They're the best kind =) Have a great weekend Cami.

  2. I hear you about praying a lot and relying on God. I have been doing this a lot lately, more than I ever have in my life. Things have been tough for me these past few months, and don't really seem to be getting better in my mind and heart and soul. I have found comfort in prayer, especially in church on Sundays and Wednesdays. I don't really know what it is, if it's all the things I've been going through or something else but I actually get very emotional in church when I start praying for strength and thinking about all these things, but somehow it's okay to cry in church and have other see. Weird I know, and this is a super duber long comment. Anyways!!! I'm extremely excited for you, for your new aspirations. keep it up!

  4. Cami,
    This post touches my heart dearly as my Jess went through the same thing a couple of years ago. She quit her job, a very good job, and spent three months over in Europe traveling. She experienced so much and saw so much beauty that she will never regret doing so. She has a good job now, and she figured that if she didn't go for her dream of traveling then, she would never have gotten another chance to do so. As for the photography, I took a class years ago, and got to see what it was all about. I developed my black and white pictures in the dark room, and to see them being created right before my eyes was a thrill for me. You can capture so many things through your lens in God's beautiful world, and knowing you, you would be the perfect person to do that. I think both of those choices of travel and photography is a wonderful thing. That is what our blog is all about. Good luck, and if you decide to go in that direction, know that you are in my thoughts and I'm sending love along the way.

  5. Set your budget and start sending out feelers... you may find out that your abilities are just what God needs @ somewhere you want to travel to! Just keep in mind that Our wants and Gods Desire's are not always necessarily the same! Good Luck and God Bless!

  6. if you can travel AND work i say go for it - do it while you have the chance!

  7. i will keep you in my prayers.. im sure its all going to work out.

  8. That would be such a dream. To be able to travel and get PAID for it. Found you from the spicy weekend blog hop btw.

  9. It does sound like a dream job: to travel, take pictures AND make money!
    Keep praying and God will direct you!
