Do Not Let What You Cannot Do
With What You Can Do
Have you ever come across a moment in your life where you have to make a decision that will pretty much determine the shape of your future?
One of those inevitable moments -for which you are never prepared-, when you realize, “this is it” the time has come, I need to deal with this now, “It’s do or die”
I’m talking about the exact moment when your mind let it’s guard down and your true self won the battle. Suddenly you feel it’s time to get rid of what makes you stressed, sad and opressed and you are finally willing to pursue your happiness, without excuses.
For many this might mean leaving a job, a relationship or a lifestyle behind and starting off new, for others it might be a matter of adjusting parts of it.
Either way, once you are there, a long and winding road lays ahead…Is it scary or exciting? A little bit of both I would say.
When you make a change in your life at 26, choosing to leave behind what you have known, worked for and prepared yourself for because you decide to follow your passion (dreams) and be who you are, you start from the very beginning. Trying to adapt to what you have, working with what you can.
The fact that you are starting on a new path that might be completely different to what you were used to, totally unknown and even opposite to what you were doing, might seem “crazy” to the people around you.
I’m passionate about communication. About getting a message through, whether it would be to inspire, to shed light upon, to inform, to share a point of view, to create.
My main lines of work cover Photography, Journalism and Literature, my two main focuses are Mexican Culture and Music Culture (although I write about any subject that I find interesting or important)
I am changing my life around -what my Muay Thai Teacher calls the Phoenix Process- and I do it because I want to live a life worth living, because I only got one chance and I want this as bad as breathing.
For me this new path means a new carreer choice and I am starting from scratch, without fomal training in any of the arts mentioned above.
Pure passion and freedom drive me to make this my way of living.
I am looking for an opportunity to work and learn all about Journalism, Photography, Media.
The intention of this blog is to showcase my work, what I’m about and what I’m capable of.
We live in the Internet Era, hopefully I will find wonderful people to learn from (and maybe even get a job?), all I know is I need to be doing what I love.
If you have any comments, advice, knowledge or useful information to share, I deeply appreciate it.
I think it was George Elliot who said, “It’s never too late to be who you might have been”
