2014: Enriching the Soul through Solitude

4:47 AM

2014: travelling alone, discovering new places, exploring the city more, meeting new people, cherishing old friendships and being able to be more creative this year. these are a few highlights of my year.  
All throughout this year, I've been consciously trying to empty myself of everything i know through my blog, instagram and flickr. For someone who likes to covet his ideas to his own, this was definitely not easy, but as soon as I did this, I found out I have a lot more things to gain than what I was giving out. I was able to express myself more creatively and learned a lot about people's thoughts, how my message came across and how I have inspired them through my photography works. That alone was what kept me going at trying to better myself.
I want to be more than who I am as an artist, to keep changing, keep evolving and constantly learning and relearning this craft of mine. I have set goals this year, and i was able to deliver with the help of a lot of people, and to the lord that always guides me through my journey. There are a few times that I lose myself, but I'm always reminded of what's important in life, and why I shouldn't be too bothered by temporary things. I may have lost a lot of followers and a few friends in the hopes of trying to expand my horizons, but I've also gained a lot more than I have asked for, ones who have the same ideals as I do. Also to the ones always supporting me on what I keep trying to do and accomplish in life, I am very much grateful you're all there with me through this. Thank you and see you next year!
