Tearful wedding eyes
Blurring the happy vision
Was never foreseen
Today is my dad’s birthday! I’m incredibly blessed to have a father who supports me no matter what. Especially after entering the real world, his experience and insight has served as pertinent advise. I merely have begun to scratch the surface of my lifetime goals for my career, writing, and relationships, and his shared vision for me keeps me focused. It’s easy to doubt my potential, and I’ve realized how important it is to surround myself with people who look at me and see me for who I am as well as who I will be. Hearing my dad tell me, “You should find a magazine where you can publish a monthly piece” reminds me that I can have that. All I need to do is put myself out there. Then I can rest assured knowing I’ve taken a step and have someone beside me to take the next one. I am fortunate to have a successful role model who shares big dreams for me and adjusts my focus to realize them.
Happy birthday Dad!
I snapped this photo at the beginning of my vacation, which started with an eye appointment the first morning. As a big Justin Timberlake fan, I couldn’t resist the urge to combine my love for his classiness with my budding photography in my own version of his 20/20 Experience album cover art.
At first I contemplated changing my profile pictures to that imitation, which got me cogitating (as usual). It stirred me to finally reveal a little more of myself on my page and make the information my own. What better reflects my interest in perspective and hints at the facets of what shapes mine than a selfy of my face behind a phoropter? The only slightly off detail is that you can’t see my eyes. That means you’ll have to read my blog to gain insight into how I see myself and the world around me. I aim to reflect the Light through encouraging words.
This photo should make its way onto my main page soon, accompanying a couple other wordy additions.
