The story behind ‘Release’
I made a major life decision to step out of my role at work. As much as I loved it, the job was stressful, consuming, and draining. The change happened abruptly. I took this one my first day ‘off-the-job’. I was originally supposed to work this day. After some meetings in regards to a position I’m pursuing, I dashed off to the coast to catch the sunset. This is the image I came away with. One that portrays the cleansing I felt.
I feel like I have a new life in front of me. I’m in that space where there’s not much weighing on my shoulders… on my mind.
I’ve been released.
Right now.. I’m in between. I have been filling shifts for my company as a ‘lower level’ employee.. which feels great. It’s nice to be back in touch with the things that made me love working for the company to begin with. I applied for the role of head chef and just found out today that I didn’t get it.. which is fine. Although I know that I could do it and do it well.. it’s been a long time since I’ve done so. The other applicant honestly/probably has more experience doing that anyways. My view is bigger.. larger. And that’s the route my interview took. Big picture.. not the streamlining and efficiency of menus.
Finding this out also has me thinking about steps that I can take to further my game in photography. Where do I go from here? I have some ideas. I just need to pick my goal, strategize, and ‘do’.
So that’s what I’ll be working on coming up. In the mean time.. I’m still released… trailing.. living.
