“If you are working on something that you care about, you don’t have to be pushed, the vision pulls you.” . I only have two more weeks at my nanny job before I jump into life as a full-time creativepreneur. This was my goal when I launched my business a year and a half ago, but achieving it felt so far off at that time. It has taken so much hard work and encouragement from my amazing husband, family, friends, and new Grand Rapids creative community. I am SO thankful for each person who believed in me and told me I had what it takes to accomplish my dream. . This has been a super exciting week. I gave my website a new look (check it out?! Link in bio!), got back on top of my blog, locked down an incredible new client, AND went legit and am now officially Aly May, LLC! . Change can be scary, but it can also be sooooo good. What changes are you facing right now that have the potential to push you closer to your dreams? . . . . . . #michiganphotographer #createexplore #grandrapids #theeverygirl #stylemepretty #livethelittlethings #lifestyleblogger #pursuepretty #thatsdarling #petitejoys #soloverly #styleiswhat #darlingmovement #creativepreneur #bossbabe #motivation #morningslikethese #girlboss #theartofslowliving #savvybusinessowner #bandofun #contentcreator #womeninbusiness #tnchustler #solopreneur #entrepreneur #contentcreation #brandphotography #contentmarketing #businessowner

What an incredible country India is, and what an honor it is to live here! I mean, where else in the world does one country have 1.3 billion people speaking over 1500 languages, practising over 10 religions living in 29 states, each of which is almost a country in itself. . It is extremely difficult to explain India to someone who is from outside the country. When I'm asked, I often say that we are 29 countries within one country. How so many people with so many differences live as one people is something that constantly surprises and inspires me. All nations are basically imagined entities, but that fact is even more pronounced in a country as diverse as India. . It is this inherent love for the idea of India, which compels me to critique it so frequently and so vehemently. When you love someone, you want them to work on their shortcomings and learn from their mistakes. And while I'm no parent of this nation, each of us bears a responsibility to the freedom that we have inherited. As a citizen of the world's largest independent democracy, I take my role as an active citizen very seriously and find it to be my duty to hold myself and my fellow citizens accountable to the ideals of this secular nation. This country was built on ideals of plurality, diversity and the freedoms enshrined in the constitution. And it is my responsibility to ensure that these freedoms are applied equally to each citizen, irrespective of their caste, color, gender or orientation. We've made great progress in some topics, yet lack severely in some. I'll keep trying in my way to make the nation better every day. I hope you do too. Happy Independence Day to you all! . . . . . . #KarmaTravels #TravelBlog #TravelBlogger #AdivasiLivesMatter #Adivasi #Odisha #IndigenousPeople #IndigenousRising #Photojournalist #PhotoJournalism #ContentCreator #ContentWriter #WritersOfInstagram #IndependenceDay #IncredibleIndia #PicTheBetterIndia #TeamPixel #Snapseed

Did you know we also use our polyurethane to fill voids below homes and concrete? In today's #FoundationRepair #TipOfTheDay Brian discusses how we utilize polyurethane foam to fill voids. Void fill is often used in conjunction with our piering systems after lifting a structure. When a home or building is lifted, a void is created between the soil and the bottom of the concrete slab. We introduce the polyurethane into any cavities in order to resupport the slab and even level out any interior slab areas that weren't leveled during the lifting process. Remember, you always want to do a void fill of some kind after lifting a structure because you want to make sure the slab is being supported throughout and not just around its perimeter!

This was the hotel me and my family stayed in during our time in Haapsalu. It was nice, would definitely stay there again. Only thing is, from this angle it looks fantastic. The sun was set perfectly, nice curve in the building and all that. But honestly, if you would go to the other side of the building. It's doesn't' look sexy AT ALL. Looks more like a prison if you ask me. But anyway I'M IN INDIA!!! I realised I traveled to a lot of countries in my life now. 29 in total.

One of the questions I get the most is how I find inspiration to write. I have always found it hard to answer, as it depends on who you are and what rests within your heart. The simple truth is that you can find inspiration anywhere if you know how to look for. Sometimes, waves of thoughts and ideas and emotions hit me and it comes out of nowhere, and I can create with a flow of ease. Other times, I go out into the world and search for it with intend. When my mind is empty and the debts of my imagination look bleak, I head out into nature and search for answers. When I cannot reap the benefits from my quest, I allow myself to gather inspiration from the people around me, friends and strangers alike. Buildings, colours, animals. I hunt for that spark to ignite that rush of adrenaline that has me longing to sit down and put words on a page. It doesn`t always appear out of thin air, and sometimes that flame never really lights up. But I write and I write, on and on, knowing that sometimes it is a bump on the road that I need to overcome. When it comes down to it, you have to put your mind to it and decide that you are a creator, that you are here to convey a message or paint a portrait.
