| p.2 #4 · Who gets depressed/frustrated? |
I was sitting here looking through someone's portfolio (not on FM) & was feeling depressed & frustrated that they had been to all these lovely places that I just cannot foresee myself getting to anytime soon as much as I want to.
How does everyone handle seeing images of places they'd like to go to knowing they could do just as good of a job but not having the opportunity? I need to win lotto
Good things are expensive. About once a week or more I will get an email or PM from someone saying they are envious of my lifestyle. I love my life, but when they say this, they have NO IDEA of the price I have had to pay! When you understand the price people pay to be able to do what they do, it is a different perspective altogether. I have no kids, no house on the hill, now no wife (not related to photography) and not nearly the "security" many people should have at my age (46). But what I do have is a crazy busy lifestyle of working incessantly, but having unusual freedom to go to places many dream of. So, what I have learned is that there are plusses and minuses to everything in life and we need to decide what we are going to do, or what we can do, and then have gratitude.
