Yes, I know this is a photography blog, however I will take liberty now and then to get more personal on it.
I LOVE being a photographer, I can’t think of anything I have enjoyed more. There is nothing I would love more than for this to be my full-time job. However arriving to that point I stay very busy getting my name out. Because of the busyness I am missing out on a lot of personal things in life, for instance; I love the outdoors and recently I’ve not been getting out and simply enjoying this paradise I live in, I want to camp and to hike more. Outdoor activities keep me focused and creative and I am a much better person when I have had my “green” time. I need to slow it down and take the time to enjoy where I live. Secondly, I would like to have a partner in life, a special someone who gets me and enjoys me for me. My friends on several occasions have encouraged me to join dating websites and I have to appease them. I detest this form of “dating”, I’ve given it another shot recently and I don’t feel this is what I should be doing so I’m sure I will be deleting my account (again). I’ve had people say “you meet so many cool people” it’s true I do, but in the atmosphere I am meeting them, they are not what I am looking for.
I take up my time with extra photography gigs on the weekends because it’s better than sitting home alone; I would love to share that aspect of my life with a man who understands how important it is to me and will encourage me. I know he’s out there somewhere.
I miss being close to someone and long to share my day and my experiences. In the past few weeks I’ve taken inventory of what life looks like for me. When faced with life and death issues it causes you to take stock in life and reassess what matters and the important things in life. I have had women tell me “you don’t need a man, they can tie you down and hold you back” I don’t see it like that, I do need someone, I need to feel wanted and loved, it’s who I am and it’s what I’m about.
I enjoy my life now, I love being behind the lens I am truly blessed with the experiences I’ve had and the people I’ve met, but I know I’m missing an important element and that’s someone to walk down the path of life with hand in hand, after all life is better when shared, at least for me it is.
