There is so much beauty that can be captured behind a camera. A beauty that can be viewed in many different ways depending on the eye of the holder. Since finding a passion with photography my view of things has become more intricate and unique. Normally I would look at a mountain and say something along the lines of “that is pretty big” or “that is cool”. Now I look at a mountain range and say “wow look at those beautiful colors and unique lines”. Not only has photography allowed me to view things at a deeper level, it has given me the confidence boost I needed to let go of the what if’s and just live for who I am.
I used to worry about whether I was making the right decision based on what others would think. That started to overtake my life these last few years and had me headed in the wrong direction. After starting photography and letting go of the negative things in life, it has all started to come together and back on track. I no longer care what people think of me because I am living for me and what I want in life.
I have this longing to be wild and free in a world that is so controlling. I want to be able to travel the world and see what it has to offer. I want to be able to live a life that is full of love, happiness, and spontaneity.
“But you belong where the four winds blow
Out where the untamed mustang roam
Like a sweet summer rain, passing through
Never seen anything wild as you”
Cody Johnson had some wise words in his “Wild as You” song. Lyrics that hit me hard and made me realize even more that I am yearning to have this in life. To be free-spirited and strong-willed. To stand for what I believe in and to live for who I am and what I want in life. To run wild with a free spirit that does not allow anyone to change who I am but to stay grounded. To be able to appreciate the small things in life and not worry about what I cannot control.
So run wild my friends and live the life you want to live. Because you only have this one life to live to the fullest. Say goodbye to the negativity and the what if’s because you deserve to be wild and free.
Run with the wild horses.
