LIFE AFTER 8-5

Hope, is that you?!

We’re living in one of the most joyful and most challenging times of our lives at the very same time. One of my favourite authors references this as the line between order and chaos. Right there, smack-bang in the middle, wehre there are things you can control and things you simply cannot.

Joyful because of baby that’s on the way and because of our new place of course. 

With the new place, however, we’ve been sent into a debt spiral, fast. Baby’s on the way and we don’t have any apparent way to change our financial situation. 

Did you read that in a panicky voice?

In the midst of all this, somehow, my wife uttered these words “I just know that our situation won’t remain the same and that it will change“.

Maybe she didn’t realise, but at that moment she spoke right into my heart. It was godly, really. Words that I still hold onto while we’re seeing this through. We’re pressed, but somehow we’re at peace. 

I had the opportunity to speak at church one Sunday morning and I took a principle out of the book of Philippians. 

“…Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ”

This really ministered to me because what stood out was that emphasis is placed not on finishing, but on the continuance of this work.

If there was ever a challenge to continue… this was it. And we embrace it – fully.

Saraye - Dancer shoot

I met Saraye in the church circles and have come to know her as a sweet spirited, kind person. We’ve been planning to work together for almost a year but never got around to it until sometime in November.

Her style leans heavily toward hip-hop but she’s a very versatile dancer who can interpret any song given to her in a way that I still struggle to explain, but that makes you wanna get up and join in…even though you know for a fact that you cannot even 2-step to save your life. I’m always amazed at how some of the best artists make it look easy. 

We didn’t want to over-analyze what we’re gonna do but we did plan to show off some moves in a tom-boyish dance outfit and incorporate the old buildings found in Central, PE. I used different styles of editing in the images and the new “Muted Saraye” preset was born out of it. You can download it here for free.

November was such a crazy month that I only got around to finishing some of the edits this week. You can check out the uploads on my Instagram, but here’s a few of my favourites below. 

As always, all comments are welcome. Thank you for reading! 🙂
