I think it's amazing when someone finds their passion. When you find something that calls to you and fills you, it is an amazing feeling.
That's how I feel about photography. If you have ever talked to me about it, you know what I am talking about. My passion comes out as I speak. I get animated and feel so many emotions I sometimes come off as a little crazy :-)
I feel very fortunate to have found this love for photography. What if I had never moved to Colorado and started taking photos? Would I have found it later? What if I hadn't been encouraged to pursue my dreams to make this my job, would I still be here?
I encourage each and every one of you to find something that makes you so happy. Whether it is doing crafts, knitting, taking photos, writing, reading, etc. Find something that you LOVE, not just enjoy but L.O.V.E. Something that fills you up and leaves you feeling amazing. And do it. You may not be able to make a living at it, but you never know. Sell your crafts and kitting creations. Teach what you love! Start a blog! Share your love with the world!
This is why I love seeing new photographers pop up. If you have the bug, go with it! The best advice I ever received was "shoot shoot shoot" every day. Get better, grow with your craft. Find your style. Don't try to copy others, be you. If you have the same passion as I do, I want to hear from you! I would love to talk about how you love to capture memories and share your love.
Even if it isn't photography, tell me what your passion is! I love to support entrepreneurs and small businesses! You may have something I need to add to my collection :-)
Let's support one another and build each other up. There is room in this world for all of us!
