There are people who love what they do, and people who do what they love. And there are people who just don’t know what to do. At the end of the day, no matter what we do, we are simply trying to fulfill our lives with a meaningful purpose. Something to keep us moving through the good and the bad times. Something that continuously feeds our dreams.
I like the idea that as long as there is passion we can do whatever we want. Passion is the fuel we need to make us believe, learn, grow, and succeed. You can learn new skills, you can develop new capabilities, but if you don’t have passion for what you’re doing, you won’t see a purpose in it.
So, what’s my passion? That one thing that will make me happy every single morning when I step out of the bed? I spent months looking for the answer, until one day I caught myself watching my daughter playing. She was incredibly happy, living fully in that fraction of time, free of responsibilities or expectations. So, I decided to take a different approach, and look deep into my childhood to search for that one thing that I loved to do, when there were no deadlines, meetings or bills to pay.
Art classes. I loved to spend time using my imagination and creativity, playing with textures, formats and colors. Photography naturally came after that first thought, as a form of art that I simply admire for so many different reasons. That’s my passion. It’s my unique way to perceive the world and express my point of view, with no obligations and no restrictions . Hopefully my passion will produce good photography that reaches out to people, touches their hearts and makes they feel things they would never imagine feeling.
Photography is the passion that brought me back to life. What’s your passion?
