While I was shooting pictures of J & Peri’s wedding I noticed this guy just sitting on the bench just enjoying the wonderful sound of the crashing ocean.
He never seemed to look out, just to the ground in front of him. I was imagining him sitting there with his eyes closed, listening to the crashing ocean, while thinking of all the things that he had hoped to do someday. And yet he was still sitting there wasting that time!
It hit me after a while that I could be that guy. If I just sat around where I was right now, yeah I would still enjoy it, but I would still regret not doing those things. So, why not just do top things on my list of ‘things to do’ rather than continuing to start at the bottom and work my way up the list. Because the list always seems to be getting longer and longer if you start at the bottom. But if you start at the top, it doesn’t seem to be holding you back anymore.
So here’s me, jumping, no, leaping into something that I want to do. Photography.
I love it. It gets me going. So, I’m LEAPING at it, and leaving the old behind, while I search out and learn from the new.
It’s so exciting!!
