words for a friday
I picked my camera up today. I'm posting less, compared to how I used to snap away. I've been feeling uninspired for the last two months after falling into a rut. Craving to be inspired and motivated. Regardless, I'm grateful that I am back into a certain rhythm of things. Sometimes I take a step back and see how incredibly in love I am with photography when I realise nothing else intrigues me the way it does. How it is part of everything in my life. Suppose my relentless-ever-changing love of things has bought me this far. Fact: I'm not persistent in anything I've claimed as my favourite pass time. In my case, this is what it means to be passionate about something, I find something to love about it, everyday.
Sometimes you just have to scroll through motivational quotes and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be. Here a few words that spoke out to me.
"Every goodbye we should say but don't, is a hello we want to, but won't."
"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard ya hit it. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not point fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!"
"Knowledge is power but enthusiasm pulls the switch."
"Here's the long and short of it: There is no why. You don't have a right to the cards you believe you should have been dealt. You have an obligation to play the hell out of the ones you're holding. And, dear one, you and I both were granted a mighty generous hand."
"And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, "This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this! And each day, its up to you to yank your hand back, put in on your heart and say, "No. This is whats important."
"All we really have is the moment that is right here, right now, right in front of us. Any moment that happened in the past is a memory, and any moment that will happen in the future is a fantasy."
