Ya know, a car is a great metaphor in and of itself.
I’ve been battling my own demons for quite some time now, my worst nightmares have come true and where I’m at now is the rebuilding phase. I’m very thankful for photography, without it well, I would be more lost than I already am. All these years I’ve been looking for the key to happiness, the quick fix. Until recently I truly thought that possessions would make me happy, not even material things but strictly possession of something, someone, even something as simple as a feeling. I’ll contradict myself and say out of those three types of possessions the most complex is the feeling part. The bittersweet part is no one feeling can be mimicked, as much as id like to keep that magical exuberance I once felt, I simply cannot ever attain that same feeling again. With your actions and environment, feelings are produced, and that, along with your thoughts and mental state, is the equation of how you feel at any given instance. So the key to happiness is a nice thing to have, its a "start" per cé. To achieve happiness you have to set a destination and drive. I’ve always had the key, I could come up with a thought of what to do to be happy, but the problem time and time again was I never started the engine, I sat in this figurative vehicle FOREVER, and let me just say I would rather be miserable than know what I need to do and procrastinate. Its all about living, driving through those fears, through your doubts, when you can face any insecurity that may come your way, you’ll always know that you are the one in control. I write to remind myself, to remind myself that I am on a perilous journey, a never ending quest to live and learn. If I have learned anything in the past few months its this: Remain teachable, always! If you are always open and willing to learn, you have infinite possibility. Im battling my worst enemy of all right now, and that’s myself, its amazing how often I get in my own way and trip myself up. Anyways if you’re struggling, or just want more out of your situation or yourself, just lace up your sneakers get in the car and drive. And don’t forget the key! Peace to all.
