These are the words of my favorite photographer, Nirrimi Hakanson, who just turned 18 yesterday and has already done a series of ad campaigns and fashion editorials. I believe in what she said because I've followed her work and she truly lived it.
It makes me think if I'm obsessed enough to make my dreams happen. If I'm taking the right steps and making the right decisions. In a world full of responsibilities, bills, social conformity and the like, it's hard to step out of that system without people judging you thinking that you're making the wrong choice just because it isn't the norm. I'm taking baby steps. Easing my way while trying to work out what I really want to happen with my life. Pursuing my passions while still getting a steady income from my day job, and then maybe when I'm truly ready, I can live my passion and not worry if I'll survive the next day, because I'd be happy and satisfied.
