Seize the Day

"Did you do something today, that put you closer to where you want to be?"

I have this quote written on a post-it and stuck on the wall in front of me. Anytime my eyes wander from what they should be focused on they land on it. I read it at least once a day, it makes me feel good when I can say yes. If you just keep pushing forward, keep putting one foot in front of the other, you'll be OK. I'm a firm believer in the saying "slow and steady wins the race"

Today I got a job after being unemployed and since May. I was worried about how I was going to help pay the bills and how I was going to stay in school. Its temporary but its a step forward!

Sophia J.

This was my first time shooting a infant. I had no idea it would be so hard! She had never been on grass before and was interested in everything but me. I still got a couple of good shoots in. I ran across these tonight and did the editing to then that I had no idea how to do last year.
I like looking back at old photo's that I thought were soo good and comparing them to what I can do know. It just makes me feel like I'm on the right path!

to feel sorrow or remorse for (an act, fault, disappointment, etc)

What if I have lost a friend
I like him
I like him enough to be with him, but I respect him and his situation enough to just be his friend.
I am tired
Of receiving blow after blow against the closed doors that leads to my emotions, that lead to my heart
I want to find a safe place to open the doors
I am tired
Of hurling hurtful words at open doors...trying in vain to right wrongs that I didn't create
I am tired of watching the destruction, its like a bad movie
Never ending
Recurring over and over again
Going round like a circle
Like a Phoenix's life cycle
I am scared that I'll be the next one walking the line to destruction
But with no one to fight against my open doors trying in vain to set me free....
