TAIT: Stay Interested

Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.

Most of us know what we're passionate about. We know what makes us tick, what really gets us going. What we're not so good at sometimes is making time for it. As you may know, I love photography. Love love love photography. I had gotten into a rut for a while of never taking my DSLR anywhere. I claimed that it was too heavy, too bundlesome, and inconvenient.  My poor little DSLR that I had invested so much money in sat in my closet and collected dust.

I'm so thankful for blogging, because it forced me to wipe the dust off of my beloved camera and reconnect with it; and I'm so happy that it did.  I hardly ever leave the house without it now. I get so lost in it now to the point that people around me probably find it obnoxious. Here's what I've learned though: we can never improve or become more knowledgable in our passion if we push it to the wayside in order to take on everything else that life throws at us. Making time for what you're passionate about may not always be easy, but it will bring you joy. It will make you realize why you were so passionate about it in the first place.


So whatever it is that you're passionate about, make time for it, stay interested in it, and always strive to learn more and improve. You won't regret it.

When I started blogging in 2008 I used a pocket camera and then decided I needed a DSLR. I used it religiously for a while but this past year have reverted back to the convenience of a pocket camera. I wanted blogging to be fun and not something where I had to present a fabulous photo each and every day... I guess we all go down ever changing roads, don't we.

This is so true! I think we all get caught up in work or families and tend to lose what we love to do. Blogging has helped me realize my true passion and seems as though it's helped you too! I swear this blogging world is brilliant for us all! And I need to get a DSLR ASAP. I am just scared of the cost and learning how to use it.

My dslr is currently dusty and the book I bought to teach me how to use it better is dusty as well. Thank you for the reminder to push myself a little more :-)

Love this! There was a time when I was really into crafts, but then the mess totally out of hand. I've been telling my husband that I need a craft room (preferably before he gets his 'mantown')... haha, so we'll see if I can get my space to start it up again! :)

It's so true. We all can't do everything, and especially do everything well.

And speaking of cameras, my DSLR is having the same issue, and now that I killed the AF on my lens, I need to save my spending freeze money to replace it (on the top of my list for post-freeze investments!).

Here's to finding your true love and sticking to it :)

Love these posts! So well written, Morgan!

I think I'll be needing some photography lessons sister! My nice camera sits in my closet right now just because I don't have the time to figure out how to work that little guy!

Hope you have a great weekend!

I need to get out my big girl camera! Well, first I need to know how to use it, but it's going to be so fun when I do! Especially for blogging...

Morgan said...

I do LOVE this! I can 100% relate. Have a handful of things I REALLY want to do and am passionate about, I just have to make the time. Have a great week!
