It’s in my blood. My soul has become what I live and breathe – as I move and travel across places and hold parts of each experience deep within. I am an enigma, even to myself. I don’t look past the moment, or not too far past the day I am living, anyway. I even question, at times, who is in control here.
Control. To what extent do I have control. I have opened myself completely to endless possibilities. Don’t ask me what my future holds as I truly do not know and I have no plans other than to go where the wind will take me. I have let go and have found, what to me is, freedom. I worry little about where I am and what the future holds and it feels very light.
My life’s path has led me to where I am in this time and I know I am where I am meant to be right now. I am not fighting it, not regretting it but celebrating that I have found happiness that begins in my core and spreads out to touch the people I meet. This sense of wellbeing attracts amazing people into my life and together we form a positive force that moves as one out into the world in a common cause for betterment. The Law of Attraction.
The past 3 years has been spent working in developing countries, first in Timor Leste, now in Nairobi. My goal in life is to be the best I can be toward humanity and to live a life making stories. I am fulfilling my childhood dream of being a photo journalist. It is at a very simplistic level but it nurtures my soul in so many ways and makes me happy. I am on the path of learning each and every day of my life. If one stops learning then the soul will die.
My past has informed who I am today. As so many others, my past is filled with shadows and secrets, struggles and survival and above all learning. It has taught me patience and compassion. Brought me to a time to mentor and an ability to know myself intimately. I now use these qualities to develop my skills to do the work I do. I strive to move through life with humility and am always listening in order to learn. And so…………………….
I am living the dream not dreaming my life.
