Here’s something you might not know about me: long before photography, trekking and instagram came along, i spent four years of my life working towards a degree in psychology. after which, i spent another year working as a counselor at a transitional housing program for homeless men.
so this probably seems like an extremely odd shift of careers, and all those years spent pursuing other things may seem like wasted time now. but i would disagree.
because i think the single thing that serves me the most, even today - is the empathy i began to cultivate back in those early years. .
over time, it developed and extended from empathy for people, to animals and of course the environment too. .
my equation with nature, the work i do now, and the things i’ve found meaning in ultimately hark back to those days. and as you can see, they had very different roots.
my point is, the path isn’t usually straight and narrow. so even if you can’t see it now, remember that if you find even a measure of fulfillment in what you’re doing and you do that thing with intention, things will fall into place eventually. .
because, (in the way more eloquent words of @nayyirah.waheed
) – ‘you will find your way. it is in the same place as your love.’ #canon #eostrip
