Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
— Howard Thurman,
Dreams, imagination, goals, passions and inspirations- what do all of those have in common? They drive us all to do what we love. Whether its photography, art, music, helping others, working with numbers, animals- GO FOR IT.
For the longest time, I allowed my fear of judgement and failure keep me from expressing my passion for photography. I allowed the what-ifs to stand in my way. "What if I'm not good enough?" What if people think its stupid?" "What if I fail?"
I am not expecting to become a millionaire (but how freaking awesome?) or famous. I'd love to say my goal would be to do this gig full-time, but I am nowhere near ready for that. My goal at this time can be summed up into one simple word: "INSPIRE".
Inspire other to see ordinary nature and find the beauty. Inspire others to appreciate what a beautiful world we have and how fantastic it can be. Throw in some quotes to really make people stop and think!
Inspiration is such an important step towards achieving anything we do. Even if I only inspire my mama (she is pretty much my biggest fan and cheerleader:)), I won't stop pursing this passion. I have an amazing friend who has been so supportive, patient, and kind as she helps teach me tricks to photography. She keeps me so grounded, while reminding me that it doesn't matter what she thinks, it only matters to me- because its my dreams.
So I sincerely hope that everyone takes to heart when I tell you to share and follow my page on Facebook- because you never know when someone needs that extra little inspiration to get them towards their dreams. By the way- there is nothing special about this picture other than I think its pretty!
Happy Saturday Friends- and stay safe and healthy!
