What’s next?

April 3, 2011

 

 

The question “What’s next?” has been coming at me left and right for the past month and rightfully so, it’s now time for me to move on (?) to my next destination/purpose. Some of you may know that this is my second stint here in Seoul and this past year and a half has brought me a lot of good fortune as a photographer and writer. I’m now at the end of my stay here and I’m feeling quite uncertain about leaving. I love Seoul, but not working as a photographer and writer full time is getting pretty old. If I’m going to stay here I need to do something totally different.

Most of know Einstein’s definition of insanity:
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

It’s time to do something different because I’m ready for different results because I’m not insane.
I live my life the way I choose and am grateful for that ability, not everyone can or will.  I don’t live my life according to other people’s expectations or some doctrine because at the beginning and end of each day, it’s just me and my Spirit. I always listen to my inner voice and follow my very own north star. I’ve met some incredible people along the way and we are now friends. Some friends I’ve had to say goodbye to but I don’t regret having known them because they taught me some valuable lesson: I can only live my life, not yours. So to them I say: thank you for your contribution to my life but your services are no longer desired here and we wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Security will now escort you off the premises. Goodbye and good luck. I really mean that.
What’s next? More time in Seoul is next but only if I’m able to do what I truly want to do and so far things are positively progressing in that direction! Yes!  If things should change, I’ve now realized that location is just a small detail in my overall story. (Anna, Thank you!) The most important thing is to move forward at all times, doing what I need to do for myself, no matter where in the world I am. Visiting my home in Virginia is next because I want to be near my family as well as stroll on the beach, read books in my favorite park and just say stuff that will have my mother in stitches. New York and Rome is also next because, sh#t, it’s NEW YORK AND ROME, OK? Lol! I need to update my portfolio, make some new contacts in fashion, food and design industries. It’s all about moving forward, discovering new things, doing new things, learning new things.
That’s what’s next.

    I am constantly trying to figure out what’s next! And I totally admire your ability to listen to your self and determine what is the right fit. According to Einstein I am playing with Insanity at the moment. And sadly, I can’t see my way out of that cycle!

    Believe Betty, I work on it every minute of the day. Thing is, you can’t get stressed out about and I think that it also helps to spend time alone, away from people and noise. You have to hear your thoughts in order to really listen. Lordy, I sound like Oprah. LOL! I really believe that though. Thanks for dropping by my little ole’ blog. Ciao!
