It doesn't matter if you dream big if you don't follow through

Dreams are what you wish you could be, but the thing is you can't just wish for them then expect them to happen. You have to go out there and do it. Which means getting off your ass and accomplishing shit.

Figure out what you need to accomplish your dream. Make a list. Take a class. Save money. Start a donation pool. Do what you need to do, just do it.

And most importantly believe you can achieve it. Cause if you don't think it's going to happen, then guess what the universe is going agree with you. Only you have the power to make it happen.

I've only ever wanted to be three things in life. A writer, a musician, a photographer. I write as much as I can (but that's not what this blog is about). I've given up the musician thing, though not my love of music. And I've said to hell with it, I am a photographer damn it.

I had put it off, I never stopped taking photos, but I kept saying I can't, I need, I won't. Finally after some major personal upheaval I said damn it I'm doing something for me. I went out and bought a Canon Rebel T3. I shot a Suicide Girls photo set for a friend. I made this blog, a Twitter, and a Facebook page. I've shot and shot and shot some more. I've edited. I've put my work out there and pimped the hell out of it (still am).

And you know what? I'm happy, like truly, ridiculously, happy.
