11 Aug WHERE THERE’S A WILL, THERE’S A WAY
Hello my darlings, so today I’ll be sharing this super cute and comfy jumpsuit from H&M with you, and I also wanted to talk to you guys about motivation and optimism.
Do you sometimes feel like time is running so fast and you are not able to catch your breath? There are so many things on your list and you feel like you don’t have enough time for the things that really matter to you, and your own personal growth? I can tell you one thing, if it’s really important to you, you will make time for it. It doesn’t matter if it’s about your own goals, being there for a friend, or dating; you will always make time for what or who is important to you. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Not sure if that’s the right phrase to use in English, but I basically translated it from the German phrase “Wo ein Wille ist, ist auch ein Weg.” That’s a phrase my parents used very often throughout my childhood, and still use now. I am so thankful for these wise words, because that’s where I get most of my optimism from. If I want something badly enough, there is always a way. You might have to overcome some obstacles and take some detours (that’s totally fine), but you will get there if you stay persistent, are determined and work hard.
When I travel I do not travel with my own personal photographer, most of the time I just have my tripod with me and my Canon. Occasionally I’ll ask someone to take a picture of me with my phone (the camera is just too complicated for most people, and thank you random strangers). These pictures were taken in Charleston, South Carolina. Since this was a work trip for me, and I didn’t have time to take pictures in the afternoon, I got up at 5.30am to get ready, to catch the sunrise at 6:34am and to start taking pictures on the balcony with my tripod around 7am. And I am beyond happy with the results. It is definitely harder taking pictures with a tripod, because every so often I have to check if I had the camera in the right angle, etc. With some practice you get the hang of it. My point is, that I totally could have not taken any pictures, and just complained about how I don’t have anyone to take pictures of me for my blog. Instead, I took things into my own hands. Stop making excuses, and start finding solutions to reach your goals!
As always, thank you so much for reading and I would love to hear your thoughts. xo Joëlle
