Living Life can be such a funny and frustrating thing. Everyday something changes, sometimes we loose track of time or we flat out ignore what keeps us alive inside. Sometimes we forget that we need to have fun while we prioritize the stressful aspects of our lives that blind us at times. Often I just forget that if I want to continue driving through the tougher aspects of my day I need to take some time for the other passions I have.
The other day I felt like I had been missing something important to me and after some reflecting about what it was I realized I haven't been out doing any street photography in a long time. Don't get me wrong, we have had some really good times so far this summer, but I haven't felt right watching the weeks go by and not pushing myself in the way that I normally do. You see ever since I picked up my camera, I have been infatuated with Street Photography and I feel like I have been neglecting that part of me. I feel like my passion for Street is like a committed personal relationship with someone I really care about, and both she and I deserve better than the lack of effort I have put forward recently.
Let's just say that I couldn't take it any longer, and I set out to get some shots for the blog this week when I knew I would have a chance. Then while looking at my blog posts this morning it shocked me to see that its been almost two months since I put anything up online. I have decided, this will not happen again, I need to feed this part of me more. So now I am making a promise to not forget about my personal projects and to keep feeding my soul.
I hope you all take some time for yourself when you need it. Make sure you have personal projects that keep you passionate about waking up in the morning, as life isn't just about a career and doing what is expected by society, it's also about taking the time to have love for yourself. So remember to take care of yourself because its your job, and your responsibility, and we have been given the right to "pursue" happiness; whatever that means to you.
