Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself. – Harvey Fierstein
That little quote is how I find inspiration for most areas of my life. I simply listen to the voice of my spirit. Whether I speak through words on paper or images on fabric, I tell my stories to the world. Expressing myself is more important than being heard. I choose happiness, and my actions define my character.
I never lack inspiration because I find it all around me. I find the desire to be the best person I can through the people I love and respect. I find life lessons in nature, and feed my soul by photographing it. If you’ve never tried it, take a walk with your camera in tow. Photograph anything that catches your eye. Don’t be afraid to be obscure in what you capture. Think about what you’re photographing and its connection to other objects is nature. Review your photos and see if there is a semblance to relationships in your own life.
To live a creative life we must first lose the fear of being wrong. ~ Joseph Chilton Pearce
