I’ve been reading this book called The Element by a man named Ken Robinson. He has a Ph. D. so, everything must be legit. He writes a lot about passion and finding what makes you feel that you are fully in your element. He describes the element to be the meeting point between natural aptitude and personal passion. Wait what? BIG WORDS.. ok not that big, but its a jam packed sentence to take in and process.
Anyway, I don’t want to sit here and write an essay about the book I’ve just read. This is a blog, not an english paper. But! I do want to share what i’ve been thinking about. Im 25, and I think I know when I feel like I’m in my element. I wont share that quit yet, I mean, sheesh! This whole strangers reading my thoughts things is still new to me. We’re not that far into our relationship yet. It will happen though! In time, In time.
I think what I’m trying to get at is that we’re all so STUCK! SNAP OUT OF IT PEOPLE! If you love to sing, then sing! If you love to draw then draw! if you love math, then do math! Ya? We can do it. We’re our own worst enemy.
Im always the first one to tell myself no. So this time I’m just going to say yes. I took these pictures in the summer. Posting these pictures, is a big step. I’m just afraid people with judge me and my amaturish (is that a word? .. it is now) ways. I want to take pictures, and pictures I will take!
I hope that you know when your in your element, and if not, that you take some steps towards finding it, or making it more of a priority in your life.
