How We Can All Learn from the Creativity of a Child

Photofocus (old site)

She’s my 7-year-old and her world is a fascinating place.  Her daily needs are simple; food, sleep and adventure.  Her notebook is full of friendly monster doodles and has a clockwork morning report of her nightly dreams.  In one particular instance, she woke to tell me that she dreamt that she could fly.  And she had a simple request.  She wanted to do a photoshoot of her dream.

Now, you can guess what I did next.  I looked down on my abilities to fulfill her photoshoot request. I told her that I didn’t know how to do that,  that I hadn’t taken photos for a while, that I wasn’t good enough or that it would be too hard.  I thought about my equipment and how my camera was old and I didn’t have the right lens.

About kellycolley

Before Kelly Colley got into the real estate business, she held many different jobs, but none that were truly fulfilling. It bothered her during this period was that nothing she did seemed truly rewarding. About 10 years ago, she met her future husband Robb, who worked in real estate. After many discussions, the two of them decided to open a brokerage. Kelly says the first few years were “extremely trying, mainly due to all the obstacles we had to overcome.” Kelly and Robb persevered and worked hard to get their name out in the community. Now, 10 years later and after much persistence, they are the small business owners of Alabama Homefinders Inc. and are continually expanding into other Alabama counties. Kelly credits the keys to her success to her faith in God and His guidance as well as her husband Robb, who she says is her “rock, best friend, and mentor”. The excitement Kelly sees in her clients’ faces when they close on a new home is what she believes is the most exciting part of her job. In addition to her work in real estate, Kelly is the founder of an organization that finally helped her find her “niche” and is perhaps the most rewarding work she does. She founded Keeping the Babies Warm in 2012, a nonprofit that collects gloves, coats, sweaters, scarves and other items in the winter months that are then distributed to various organizations. Kelly and Robb have a “blended” family with four sons that range in age from 21 to 8, Trey, Dalton, Pierce and John Walker. In her spare time, Kelly enjoys hosting a Wednesday morning womens' Bible study, meditating each day on God's word, cooking and making homemade jellies, spending quality time with her kids, traveling, deep sea fishing and writing. Kelly is an active serving member of the Church of the Highlands Montgomery location.
