Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get absolutely everything you have ever wanted? Do you think you would be happy when you get those things or will you wish for more? I know this is a hard question to ask, but as I was out on this shoot I started to think if I succeed in this would I want more? or would I be content? We live in a society where no matter what we do and how far we get to success we will always want more and have everything be better. A “better” car, a “better” house a “better” life even a”better” wardrobe. I am at a point in my life where I am finding happiness in just the small things that life has to offer me and that I don’t want more or better I just want happiness.
While on this shoot I spotted a Weeping Willow It was the most magnificent tree I have ever seen I couldn’t stop staring at it. As I looked at this tree I felt a sense of content and self assurance (I have been dealing with a lot of self doubt lately, not too sure why) But this tree was probably 20 feet + and as I stared at it I realized how happy the tree looked it looked content. It had so many branches and leaves and other life forms that it had to take care of but yet it stayed in the same spot. I want to be where that tree is, to be happy where I am. This weeping willow tree made me understand something that I never did until I understood what it meant at this moment. That was to be content with what life throws at me and always do my best because the grass is not always greener on the other side. I hope this is something everyone figures out in the long run because I am so glad I did.
Until Next Time
P.S– I have no idea why I am making crazy funny faces I think I was in the mist of talking to the photographer in most of them
