My Daily Commute

Hello fellow bloggers! I can’t believe it has been over two years years since my last post. Many events have taken place in that time and I’m happy to say, mostly good. It has been a long and winding road but I finally found the way out of the detour and on to the right path… there were dark moments where I had my doubts that I would ever find my way out; it was also during those moments that I found myself, and the courage and strength,  I would need to take me back to the purposeful life I’ve been praying to God for.

In the last couple of years, I’ve been given the opportunity to have a purposeful job that allows me the financial independence I’ve lacked for so long… while the daily train commute is long, it gives me time to enjoy the beautiful passing views. These shots were taken with my Samsung tablet on auto setting.




Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

Time flies when you’re having fun… can’t believe, I started this photography blog a year ago. And what an amazing year it has been.  Never would I have expected the valuable lessons and skills I would get from blogging. I am so glad I took the leap of faith and follow my passion.

While it certainly would be great to  just shoot pictures for pleasure — however, since I have to make a living; there are things I have to take care of first. I will be taking a break from posting for a couple of weeks to concentrate on some business ideas and obligations. I hope, things will workout and I will be able to take my creative business to the level it should be. Thanks everyone for your support and encouraging comments. 🙂

Breaking Out of Comfort Zone

As Forrest Gump would say,  “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna to get…”  When I started this blog after losing my dream job, I really didn’t know what would come of it. All I know was I had to keep my mind in the creative state and stay busy or else I would get stuck in the comfort zone. For some people, they like the comfort zone. For me, when I am in the comfort zone – that’s when my mind becomes depressing and boring or as my grandma used to lecture me when I got lazy; she told me that I was  “Like the tofu…” meaning your brain becomes soft and flavorless. Her words of wisdom have stayed with me… cause I’ve never met anyone who would eat tofu without adding anything else to it. Since I started this blog back in May, I’ve rediscovered myself and the goals I’ve lost.  At first, I was pretty depressed about having to quit a job that I love. However, I believe things usually happens for a good reason. As much as I have enjoyed my work, the environment I had to work in was toxic for me. I realized that by letting go of what I want, I am getting what I need.

Over the weekend, I reviewed my blog from the first post to the present and was proud to see all the different flavors I’ve added to my “Tofu Brain”. I decided to make some changes to my blog… and break out of the comfort zone. As always, I appreciate any comments and suggestions to help me improve.
