It is when life throws you challenges that you are forced to stop and re-assess things. This past month we have had hospitalisations, doctors, specialists and I get a sense that God is telling me to slow down and focus on the important things this year.
I have decided this year to use my website to share my journey. To stop trying to keep up with Instagram's algorithms and stop comparing myself to everyone else.
I have always been a private person so I find it difficult to share everyday moments like the ones I have with my friends or family. When I have coffee with a friend or eat at a restaurant my instinct is usually just to spend time talking with that person face-to-face. By the time we have had a good meal, had a few laughs and good conversation, said our goodbyes I realise that I had forgotten to take photos of the moment for my Instagram. And so my Instagram stories is empty, yet again. Last year, I felt a niggling guilt about this. The next six months I have decided to re-focus more on family and more on the things that put me in a positive frame of mind (creating for me, exploring new film making techniques, joining community workshops).
I will be sharing, through my website, what I am honestly feeling, reading, learning, shooting - films, photographs, thoughts so that you can learn and hopefully be encouraged in your own journey.
