- It was another cloudy day and the drops of water would not stop falling from the sky. I’ve been trying to photograph everyday. Whatever it is, anything I see interesting or beautiful. I was traveling around Orlando today, visiting some of my mom’s friends. I heard all kind of family stories. Every time I hear about how mothers worry so much for their children, they work all their life to try to give them a good life and their children are not appreciative of what they do. I get to hear them express their feelings and stories with their girlfriends. As a young daughter, with a mother that has worked extremely hard to give my brothers and sisters a best life she could in this country, I think about what I am doing with my life and what I could do to make it better. I think if I am being lazy and not doing my best or enough. I really want to do something big, accomplish all my dreams and work on big and important projects. At the same time I would like to help people once I can.
- I applied in November to have some of my work be published in a website this year, and I got the e-mail today that I was not selected. When I found out I got mixed feelings because I really wanted to be part of it. It the same time I though of the old saying “If you don’t get something you want today, it is because something better is waiting for you”. That is completely true, all I can do for now is follow my passion, keep learning, do my best and stay positive. The best thing right now is to see it as a signal from the universe telling me I should do a better job and work harder. It’s the only thing worth thinking, I would not gain anything from feeling sad or disappointed, that will not get me anywhere, anytime.
- Thank you for your time! See you tomorrow!
