So this quote thing has kinda become a thing and for me it's therapeutic and a way to express my thoughts and photography.
I decided that if I'm going to be posting these quotes then I should be a bit more open about my own life. I am not a person to give life advice. I'm almost 24 and in the past 24 years I've had a major failed relationship (so much I prefer to not even go into details), I've had too much to drink and made multiple bad decisions, I've let people down, I've let people go, I've felt like a failure, I've had high highs and even lower lows. It's been a rollercoaster of events. I've lived in a new place every year for almost 6 years in a row now. From Houston to Austin to NYC to San Antonio to Chicago and about a million vacation spots in between.
I don't know the secrets to success or happiness. All I know is that every time I've fallen, I've had to figure out a way to get myself up. While I still have a lot to learn and discover, I've experienced death and divorce and a whole lot of hardships in recent years. I can tell you that I think choosing happiness, spending time traveling and on experiences, and following your dreams is the best route to a fulfilled life. Drama, gossip, and social media is something I try to stay away from. Comparing yourself to another is never a healthy way to spend time. You never know what someone is going through and I really believe you can never really know someone. People can change... and they can unfortunately stay the exact same.
I know for a fact that if you want something bad enough and you focus on it then you can get it. I believe in writing down dreams, spending time day dreaming, and doing what you want to do. Imagination is more powerful than you could ever believe. I also think being a good friend and not judging others is a key to being happy.
Bottom Line: I'm no expert. I've failed miserably. But I also get up and try to keep going towards my dreams and goals. I've been lucky to have some amazing friends and family who have been by my side through the darkest of moments into the sunlight. Everything changes yet everything stays the same.
I would love to hear your ideas on life. I spend a lot of time in contemplation, trying to figure this whole thing out. Thank you for checking out my quotes- I hope my words and pictures can speak to you in some way :)
