Something interesting is happening in my life, I am slowly emerging into a
Passionate Photographer with a Purpose.
This is pretty fun for me, because up until I started blogging, I was very uncertain about
taking a photograph.
Let alone understanding terms such as aperture, element, or reflector.
Imagine me uploading photos onto a computer and editing them…I almost feel like giggling.
Me-the fumble fingered gardening guru…no way!
Well, here I am in the thick of it all and Passionately loving every moment of it.
I do not have any ambitious dreams of becoming another Stephanie Gonot.
Or a modern day Jacques Henri Lartigue.
I am passionately content with taking my camera with me on my daily walks,
while embracing the beauty of nature, and what unexpected joy this walk may bring-
to my heart, to my mind, to my soul.
Isn’t this what passion is all about?
Living one hundred percent in the bursting moment.
Not rushing the beauty,
Not rushing the feeling,
Not rushing the experience, of living abundantly, whatever it might just be.
Could Passion and Purpose be as simple as recognizing the sweet beauty of an unexpected
blossom coaxed to an early bloom, by extra doses of sunshine on a unseasonably warm January
Or could it be a very mediocre photographer passionately thrilled over the possibility of
capturing a photo of a very skeptical Egret?
Could it be that Passion, Purpose and Productivity is all around us.
If we really and truly take the time, make the effort to look, listen and love with passionate spirits?
Could life be a gentler, softer journey, if we just allow ourselves
the freedom to relax and focus on the here and the now.
Not worried with the if’s, the what’s and the maybe’s.
Perhaps life can honestly be filled with not quite so many thorns…
I believe, yes I do, with all of my heart.
I believe that it can be… it is within each one of us, and each one of us must find our own way,
to choose, to have the power to make it so.
Do any of us have it easy, oh of course not.
Have we all had our share of disappointments, heartaches, tragedies, health dilemmas-absolutely.
But just as the day dawns and just as the day closes.
We have abundant choices throughout each moment of each day to live it with
There is not a prerequisite to live a life with passion, it is never too late to begin.
Never, ever be afraid to try something new and above all enjoy the journey.
As for this mediocre, photographer, she is striving to run with passion, giving it all her best shot.
