It’s new years day. I happen to have the evening all to myself, which only leads me to sit here and reflect on the past year, think of my life at this very moment, and all the possibilities of my future. Of course, one thing I have learned in my years is that I have absolutely no control of this life of mine. Life insists spontaneity, happenstance, serendipity. I’m constantly led to lessons I need to learn, and my life changed by each little experience. I am open to my life more than ever before, this I know for sure. I’ve learned to put myself and my happiness first, to stop being so afraid of change, to also accept that I have no control. The most important thing I learned in 2014 was to stop being so scared of living my own life.
2014 for me was a year that brought about change. My life went from one I knew quite well in 2013, one I had virtually lived for years, day in and day out – to a brand new life I was completely unfamiliar with. New people, new job, new home, new life; new me. I found my strength in 2014. I became the most confident and comfortable with myself and accepted that not everyone is going to embrace my individuality or understand me from my core. In 2014, I left a lot behind. Also including the direction of my photography. For the first time in my entire life, I didn’t have any direction. 2014 I lived for my own happiness. To live with total acceptance is something that I can’t explain. My only goal in 2014 was to be happy. I gained as well as lost a lot in 2014, but I look back with no regrets and only see endless possibility for my future.
