It’s July 1st. I turn 28 today. Some thoughts:
I may be getting older, though I don’t feel old at all.
When you get older, you have no choice but to stay in shape. That said, I’m probably in the best shape of my life.
Time really does fly, and sometimes it may seem as if I have achieved nothing, but I’ve made it a habit to congratulate myself for achieving even the little things.
For the first time in my life, I’m a fan of my own work.

I truly believe that if you had the opportunity to end the day by going to the beach and watching the sunset, you’ve had a good day. I’m glad to have been able to do that quite often this past year.
Much of how we live our lives are based on the stories we’ve been told. It is my priority to focus on not just the popular stories, but also those that are most authentic. Lest we risk leading our lives astray simply because we’ve been reading the wrong script.
If you can’t stop thinking about it, go do it.
There’s a huge difference between an explanation and an excuse
Photography is hard, but if it was easy I probably wouldn’t be doing it.
So happy I had the courage to jump in and finally take some voice lessons
A simple rule to life by, “Make good stuff you’re proud of”
Reading is great. Taking action is greater.
Believing in yourself is hard. Surround yourself with those who love and care about you in order to make it out the gauntlet more or less intact.
Most of us define our own terms of success but still allow others affect how we feel about it. To set out and do what we need to do, we must mute the unhelpful ones, even if you seem quite stubborn.
Never compare yourself to someone else’s highlight reel (ie: their social media accounts)
Don’t just say what you’re going to do. Do what you’re going to say.
Pronoia > Paranoia
Good enough = Good enough
Love is a skill rather than an enthusiasm
Most good things in life start with shaky beginnings. Unfortunately, most of us quit too soon.

Luck is real
Respect > Status
You can’t please everyone
Always try to be part of the solution
Still an underdog. Still not quitting.
