Okay… here goes. My very first blog.
And I believe I got to this point simply because I’m at stage wherein I want to do more with my life. Don’t get me wrong. I love my life. I’m a 43 year old father of 2 beautiful daughters and a husband to my beautiful loving wife of 15 years. I am fortunate enough to have a business and be in an industry where it isn’t the usual 9 to 5 grind.
Yes I definitely hustled and put in 60, even 70 hour work weeks when I was starting. But I’ve built it to a point were my family can live comfortably on one income. And I really only work maybe 20 hours a week, if that. That freedom of time is both a blessing and a curse.
I am blessed because I get the opportunity to spend more time with my family. Its a gift to be able to see them off to school and to be home when they get home. To know that most of the time I will be there when they need me. To be their rock.
Where do I go from here?
But it’s this same free time that’s allowed me to come to realize that I want to do more with my life. I want to do something else that will bring more meaning to my life. Something that moves me. And if it benefits others in the same way, then its icing on the cake. I have never felt more content with this simple life I’ve built around me. But the irony is because I am content, my mind is free to wander. To think of other things I’d like to do to make my life more meaningful.
I’ve always had an interest in taking pictures. When I look at a beautiful picture it inspires me. This is how I move forward. I want to create visuals that move me and hopefully, you! And because I don’t have any desire to get a sports car, I’ve come to the realization that this is how I can find that meaning… that purpose… I hope you can join me in this journey.
This is my “Midlife Crisis”.
