Fear is where the greatest opportunities are.What are you afraid of?Fear is where the greatest opportunities are.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Failure? Rejection? Boredom? Not being good enough for something or someone?
I'm starting to notice in my own life that fear is usually a good indicator of where I have the greatest opportunity.
I'm not talking about fear of running into freeway traffic. That's a healthy respect for the laws of physics.
I'm talking about those things that if you are still long enough to listen to your own heart, you hear it telling you what you really hope for.
And usually there is a voice right behind it telling you why you cant have it, and all of the reasons why.
This past year, I have made an effort to start listening to the first voice, and and not to the second.
As I have been practicing this, I have started to notice something that I missed for years...
That fear voice is actually covering up the simple fact that I just have to choose. And then choose again. And again.
Every day wake up, live in gratitude, love the people around you, and know that you CAN. Really know tha
Beautiful Photography ++Think Photography is easy as a pie?Beautiful Photography ++1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'll tell you what. Photography is the sum of a good amount of virtues. It is talent and inspiration. Creativity and imagination. Commitment and devotion. Patience and attention. Skill and technique. Team spirit and concentration. Art knowledge and innovation. Also, it requires a whole lotta time. And the list may go further and further.
So before you start judging the others' works, think. Don't go throwing sour remarks. Try to be a little sweet and understanding. And if you don't have anything nice to say, just move on. Find what you like and let others do what they like.
To every photographer who recognizes the need of all above, and never stops learning in the pursuit of those virtues, don't forget to Always protect what is yours. And don't you let anyone underestimate you. For I'm sure you put your mind, and body, AND soul in every single photograph you take.
Something that happened todayOnly it isn't today any longer, it almost never is but the one time,Something that happened today2 years ago in Personal More Like This
but still it was today when it happened.
There's been no poetry poking about in my soul
these days but I've been circumspect about it
and counseled myself that like a bear in winter
it may not be dead but only growing cubs,
living off stored fat, and sleeping.
Today I was at the grain store buying feed
for my four horses. The man who loads the grain
out of the warehouse is leathery and lean as an old bean.
He's chatty and kind, and when I have dogs in the car
he gives them too many biscuits and has to wait to load
the grain bags till they finish.
So as I said, this vessel for the poetry she-bear (me)
was buying and he was loading and chatting and about the third
bag he asked me what kind of horses I had, and I told him,
and then he said to me that when he were a young man
there was a Morgan mare lived on the farm of a man he worked for,
and only he could load this mare onto a horse trailer when it was time
for her and
