I’ve learned that personal success doesn’t come with proof. It isn’t written on a business card, a resume or on a bank statement. It cannot be measured nor can it be sized up. All I can show for are my gratitude journals that I’ve filled up over the years documenting the little things I am thankful for in my life and the photographs that I take. I think what really matters is practicing photography to some degree of skill in a sustained way and to nurture that passion for the medium regardless of the outcome.
