Isn’t There Enough Happiness To Go Around?

I’m not going to waste too many words this post either apologizing for not writing or making up some new excuses. Instead, from now on, I post when I post and I’m just going to have to accept that.

I’ve always had a secret interest in photography that has gradually grown throughout the years. I find myself more comfortable behind the camera than in front of the lens, and today I was wondering why that might be. I think part of it stems from a lack of self-confidence that I have been fighting since the first I understood what self-confidence was. However, an even bigger aspect of it is rooted in my appreciation of other’s characteristics that I find lacking in myself.

I admire the individual that can exhibit self-love. I admire the individual that can dance like a mad-woman without a care as to who is judging her. I admire the individual that can outwardly admit to spending a whole week in Disneyland and not even react to the bewildered looks she receives. I admire the individual who can walk around with an ice cream sandwich in one hand and a giant cotton candy in another because she doesn’t care if people are questioning her weight. I admire the individual the does the things that make them the happiest, without a care or regard as to what others have to say about it.

I admire this individual because I strive to live like them.

At the end of the day I want to be able to say that I did whatever it took to make myself happy . That I embraced every moment and every opportunity to grow as an individual without worrying about outside opinion.

There’s something to gain from being behind the camera, you get to see others in a light that may remain unknown to them.


Until Next Time,

Chelsey Marie
