5.)If you could only focus on three things in life and pursue them fully, leaving everything else, what would they be and why? (inspired via tweet by Sarah Mae from Like A Warm Cup Of Coffee)
What three things would I choose to focus on fully in life? Hmmm? Let's see...
Why? That's easy. Family is the most important thing to me. Without them, I would be lonely, lost, empty and sad. My daughter is the new life in me. She creates a newness in my life. She captures my heart. She is everything and I've taken on life in a whole different aspect because of her. As for my husband and my immediate family, they let me be me. They accept me for me. They love me for me. They don't try and change me. They understand me and I need that. I've changed over the years and they've embraced that and accepted it. I love them dearly and without them, life wouldn't be the same.
Growing up I always wanted to be an Interior Designer. I wasn't passionate about anything else. That's what I wanted to be. Then I got older and never went to college and lost the passion. Felt unsure of myself. Thought it was too competitive to even bother. Then as the years went by, I would take random pictures of this and that and got compliments and at first I thought "aw, thanks" and never thought anything else. Then as I would take more and more pictures, the more the compliments came. Then I really started to get inspired and I have become to love taking pictures over the last several years, more than I ever did. Then one day while in San Francisco's Pier 39, my husband, daughter and I went into a gallery of landscape photos. That's when it hit me. "This is what I want! I want my own gallery." Then I just got my Canon this past Christmas. I still have that gallery in my mind but I have been moving slowly, trying to learn all the different techniques and effects of the camera. Next year I plan on taking my first photography class with a girlfriend of mine. Some day I hope to grow this passion into a business.
As I occasionally posting here, which I need to more, I have been moving closer to God. He's always been apart of my life but I never followed God's word the way I need to. I did things I should have, talked in a manner I shouldn't, listened to toxic music and I'm slowly trying to make that change. God has been patient with me yet he has always been there for me...answering my prayers. My faith has gotten stronger and I would just like to embrace my faith more as I feel I as a person will become a better "me".
