The Power of Conviction

26 Jul


“Faith makes things possible, not easy.”

In all aspects of our life, we are tested. We fight with our loved ones, we make mistakes at work, we miss an opportunity, we don’t grow at the pace we think we should. People are quick to judge, but there are never enough hugs and pats on the back. For me, there is also a shortage of time.

Just like anyone else, there are moments when I feel tired, run-down and discouraged. Like most entrepreneurs, I juggle too much and I spend a lot of time reaching for the stars (while still striving to nurture the “right now” with the people I care about). In those moments, when I struggle with disappointment and focus, faith is the only thing that keeps me going.

I have to believe that things with the people I care about will get better.

…that mistakes will be forgiven, and that with hard work comes more opportunity.

…that I will find the time to study more, to practice more, to network more and to grow both professionally and as a person.

…that my efforts will yield results, and remember to be thankful for those results, big or small.

…that people will appreciate my photography, the way I see the world and the way I make my path through it.

…that I will continue to make progress towards the professional goals of traveling with a camera, and the personal goals for long-term, continued happiness.

I have to have faith.
Conviction doesn’t make my journey any easier.  Life is about balance, and for every good day I have, every laugh and smile, there will also be sadness.  People will disappoint me, I will fail at things, tears will be shed.  But on the days when I question myself and my choices, it is faith that will motivate me to keep moving forward.  Belief makes my dreams possible.
