In 2010 as we were leaving the beach, Robby looked wistfully back at his sand creation. Instead of being sad, my wise little guy said to me, “I will build a better castle tomorrow”.
I am choosing to follow his lead. Regardless of what I may be sad to give up today, tomorrow is always an opportunity to build it BETTER.
My current castle is constructed of images. I am building it better by concentrating more on photographing things I love, and less of what I don’t. I am working diligently on monetizing my passion through more than portraits. I am exploring other complimentary creative pursuits (like this blog). And I am NOT paying attention to what has been left behind (or mistakes that I have made), but instead what I can do moving forward.
How about you? What is your castle made of, and how will you build it better tomorrow?
