a special thank you

I want to say thank you to Nirrimi. She is only 17 and is such an amazing photographer. This time, it wasn't just her photos that moved me. It was her eloquent flow of words that brought tears to my eyes. She was able to say what I could only ever feel. I could relate so well to everything she wrote, but this paragraph really hit home for me, as I'm sure it could anyone who is living life chasing their dream.

"i've learnt that to make dreams come true, you have to be obsessed. truly, utterly obsessed. i think of obsession as passion squared, and if you have passion for something people will see that. if you go through an entire day without doing something towards your dream, you're not obsessed enough to make it happen."

Photography is just that for me. It is my obsession. My passion. The thing I cannot go on one day with out. It's what drives me. I really can not imagine what I'd be without it....

There is so much I want to do.
I want to inspire...
I want teach & help others with photography.
I want to be someone to look up to.
I want to be a friend from far away.
I want to love and be loved.
I want to dream and dream big.
I want to live.

I hope you find your passion. No matter what it may be.

Here is the link to her blog post.

Please read it. It is truly inspiring.
