Well 2018, you have been a blast with so many new experiences and interests!
I don’t see the point looking back and dwelling on what could have been better. To me, my account reflects an archive of memories and list of accomplishments. While I agree, mainly the best are showcased, there is a story of hardship and success behind each image. I would think of it like a mountain being a metaphor, where there is always struggles along the way but when you get to the reward of the summit the hard work is worth it.
The perception built with social apps can sometimes be misleading. People ask all the time how do I get to have the same experiences as this or a life like this. Reality is anyone can if that’s what interests you. My photography has been my gateway to some amazing things and my way to allow myself to have new experiences. On the other hand, I work a full time job that allows me these opportunities and share an understanding of relatable things you may have not known. Life takes hard work and determination but with that you can achieve anything. I wish you well in 2019 and hope with that you keep outdoing your expectations in the many years to come.
