Finding Myself Through Photography

Sometimes in life, you find yourself wondering ‘What’s my purpose?’ or perhaps questioning ‘What’s my true calling?’. And to that, I reply…try everything! Anything and everything that fills you to the brim with adrenalin. And then you know, when you wake up in the morning, you feel the slightest bit of relief, knowing that you’re doing what you love, what you are destined for.

It took me plenty of years to find myself, to find what I’m passionate about. Photography came into my life by chance, it was not in any way intentional. And I can say now, that I’m so blessed and grateful that it wandered into my path. I know this is what I want out of life, I know I want the thrill of capturing the flourishing, scary world around me. I want to feel alive, and most importantly, I want to feel happy.

Photography has encouraged me to take risks, to do what I once considered daunting, to throw myself in at the deep end, to try new things, to do whatever the hell I want. I have embraced my unique qualities, and my ambition to differ from everyone else. In a world of copy cats, be your true self.

I have come a long way in the past year. This is one picture of me, where I am genuinely smiling. I was smiling because I was celebrating my birthday, and also amazed at how far I’ve come, standing before the baby photos behind me (yes, I am still that same chubby cheeked baby, just happier). Life is stressful, life is daunting, life is chaotic, and hectic, and frightening, and traumatizing, (I could go on), but I want to leave you with this: What is the point of going through life unhappy? What is the point of just settling? Why not get out there, and dare to dream? Why not get out there, and be seen, be noticed? You never know, your promising future might just be around the corner. So, get going. I wish you the best. I wish you a life of abundant happiness and plentiful laughter.

If I can come out stronger than ever, with my head held high, after a tough few months,  (I still have bad days, let me remind you, I’m only human. I’m no Superhero.), anything is possible. Reach for the stars, find your calling, find yourself.

Happy Friday, Dreamers.

My name is Alice Frawley, and I am currently located in little old Ireland. I am a Photography enthusiast, and intend to make this my career, no matter how long it takes. To transform a hobby into a career, could potentially be the best decision of my life. Photography has been my passion, for quite some time now, and I am absolutely desperate to get myself out there, and show the world my photographs. This is a completely new journey for me to embark on.
