I felt like photography was bringing to much negative attention, it was messing up friendships and it was stressing me out! I had been doing photography for two years and I couldn't understand why is this the year that I'm receiving back lash. Being the person that I was every subliminal post attacking my business or character I felt the need to address it. Until one day my husband made me realize that I'm much better than what the enemy is trying to throw my way. We sat in the kitchen arguing and he said something that was so valuable, he said "You've come to far, your a business woman now and it's a certain way you have to carry yourself. The reason she's attacking you is because the enemy sees where God is about to take you and he's trying to stop that! And what's sad is Kamia, your letting him." That's when I realized I wasn't going to stop, this was my calling and it's a purpose for all of this.
Success bring negative people because it's meant to motivate you. It's meant to make you humble and give you a reason to keep pushing. There was a point where I wanted to stop just so the drama would to, but then something told me to block the negative people out and the people with them and just pray. I started to pray not for them, but for myself. As I prayed and read God started opening doors. If you read my previous blogs you know how great July was to me. This made me realize why certain people were so negative towards me. Sometimes people have hatred towards you because they know your going places, they see the impact your making on the people around you, they know that God is working in you and around you and they can't stand it! It took me a while to understand it but once I did I became so refreshed and finally at peace with myself.
Negativity and negative people can be a good thing. Because you can always turn something negative into something positive. The more I was talked about the more doors started to open. When your receiving blessings expect to receive negative feedback. Everyone is not going to celebrate you and your success and that's okay.
In the mist of the being talked about. There came other clients, I got a total of 12 new clients in two month. I started a Non Profit Organization with another business woman and I got offered a big opportunity, an that was a photography exhibit. Once I started blocking these people out of my life, not focusing on them but focusing on what God had for me. I seen a shift in my life and my business. I love photography, I love uplifting positive women who genuinely loves what they do, I love being a mentor for other photographer's just starting out. My contributes and what I represent speaks for my character. Not what people say.
There are so many things that comes with success, including negative people. But instead of letting them discourage you. Continue to pray for them but most of all continue to chase that dream!
I'm not perfect, far from it and I don't mind letting the world know it, for the time being I will always give my testimonies!
THIS BLOG POST IS NOT TO OFFEND ANYONE, IT'S NOT TO BASH ANYONE BUT IT'S TO TELL SOMEONE MY STORY WITH HOPES OF ENCOURAGING THEM OR INSPIRING THEM. AND IF YOU HAVE SPOKEN NEGATIVITY OVER MY LIFE, I STILL WISH YOU THE BEST. IF YOU ARE A NEGATIVE PERSON, YOU CAN CHANGE BECAUSE I DID.
