It’s the 1st of May 2015, Labour Day holiday! 4 months of the year 2015 had gone by forever. It had been a busy busy 4 months of 2015 and I had not been able to write/share articles on a regular basis, it also affected my photography and writing too. There were a few things good and bad that happened to me recently that got me writing and I am trying to kickstart my writing on my personal site here again.
Life is of Ups and Downs, never smooth sailing. There was a recent incident in the real world, the society whereby my inexperience in dealing with the matter, also due to me being too kind and too naive. Yes, looking back, I was stupid too. This life lesson served as a reminder to me again, have I stopped learning? Such kind of life lessons in the University of Life, will serve me well. The life lessons and experiences learned, I must not repeat such mistakes again.
We all had to pay our tuition fees, our dues, to the society for life lessons. This is not my first tuition fee and neither will it be my last tuition fees to society. Learning is a life long journey, I must never stop learning, whether through books, additional education or society life education.
Life gives you the Ups when you are least expecting it. The year 2015 might just turn out to be a bit more special year for my photography journey and this quote really fits in nicely by Brian Tracy –
“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”
My maiden photography photo book, a unique and special Hokkaido Black and White Landscapes Photo Book, is coming soon. Inside my heart, I am excited and anxious, an achievement that I can unlock when I receive the 50 photo books prints in the first week of June. This is very special and very personal to me as a photographer.
Life is full of Ups and Downs, looking ahead towards the next 8 months of 2015!
