I wish I would have taken a photography class. I love taking pictures. I enjoy remembering each experience that I captured on paper. I wish I would have taken a writing class. I love writing. I find myself jittery at times needing to write something, anything but what and then what do I with what I just wrote? (Thank goodness my friend showed me how to blog.)
I feel it’s too late for me to start something new. My problem is when I do something (that I want to do) I do it with total focus. So, once I started having kids I totally focused on them and didn’t have time to do anything that would take away from them. I took my share of 1000’s of pictures of my kids and journal everyday about everything new they were doing.
…Wait a minute… as I’m writing this blog I’m realizing that I was doing exactly what I was supposed to do at that time and that I still have plenty of time to go into photography and writing. I needed to focus on my kids completely and as they get a little older and a little more independent I can venture out. I’m not ready for a career in photography or writing – that might take the fun out of it. But I am ready for my own blog and maybe the picture that I chose to capture the title will be one that I take. Hey, baby steps right?
I’m not going to make myself feel guilty or beat myself up because I “missed out” on something because now I know that I didn’t. What a relief! I’m doing exactly what I should be doing at the time I should be doing it – but still dreaming of things to do in my future. Did ya catch that?
I think I’ll go take an inspiring picture and hopefully it will inspire me to write about it.
