To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best to make you like everybody else means to trust your gut instinct, to honor the whispers of your soul and to fully embrace your passion and desires. Never let anyone dictate how you shall live or what you should believe. No one lives like you. Your life is yours to live.
“Cherish your soul. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide if fitting in is more important than following your heart’s desire”.
While the snow is slowly melting outside my window, I´m packing and organizing – getting ready for my trip to Venice this coming week.
I´ve decided to pack everything in a single handbag. I want to travel light for once. I always carry a huge suitcase or two – but this time, I only want to bring a few pieces of clothes and one camera + one lens!
Venice can be cold in January, and I´m excited to arrive and explore the weather conditions I will be working in. The weather has such a huge impact on my photography and often influence the mood and the story I´m going for.
I´m kind of leaving chaos behind at home since the renovation of my house is still going strong – a little bit scary to leave and let go of control – the construction workers will carry on while I´m gone. Hopefully, I´ll be happily surprised when I get back again to see the result.
Now, it´s time for a cup of coffee, and a wander to enjoy this quiet winter day.
