Have you ever been hit with a tidal wave of inspiration? One that is so strong that everything in your being is telling you that you have to start doing something. That’s what happened to me on Thursday while I was surfing the web. Ironic, huh? Tidal waves and surfing. Hah! 😛

Anyway, remember how I participated in the Philly Photog Shootout last month? Well I was looking at the Photog Shootout blog and there was this entry that just sort of…..hit me. It included this video – check it out:

The great thing about this video is not only is it perfect for the safety advertisement, and the photography business like Rob mentions in the blog post…but it’s PERFECT for LIFE. As humans, we miss out on so much in our busy lives that if we just take a minute to relax and enjoy life…good things are bound to happen for us.

I felt so motivated and creative after seeing the video that I was almost frightened. I wanted to push full force into my own world. The world that I created. The world that holds anything and everything I’ve ever wanted. It truly IS amazing. And with that said, I’m redesigning my website with a fresh, new look! I’ve recently booked my first wedding. I have a many photo sessions lined up that will allow me to create and have fun and help me become an even better photographer than I already know that I am. I’ve got so many ideas floating around in my head right now… I’m going places.

Speaking of places, here is a place that is truly breathtaking: Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland.

If you’ve never been then I highly suggest visiting. It’s one of those places that when you see it for the first time, you get this wonderful surreal feeling and you think to yourself, “Am I really here? Am I really seeing such a beautiful, heavenly place?” And would you believe this was the first time that I got to see the “other side” of the Atlantic Ocean. It was also my first European trip and now I am hooked. Can’t wait to go back!

  • Wow! You ARE going places! Speaking of energy!

  • That sounds like SUCH a cool place!!!

  • Stunning image! Wish I were there right now! 🙂 I so need an escape.
    Oh, and I didn’t say the bear! :))

  • That video is just amazing. I saw it a while back and it really is just so eye opening. I’m glad that it had that affect on you, sometimes the most random of things are inspiring, but when it happens it’s so important to take that feeling and ACT! Otherwise it slips away along with motivation and then you just feel lost. Or at least that’s what I feel like 🙂 .. Beautiful image. I’ve never been to Northern Ireland, but now you’re compelling me to go, I’m so close I might as well 🙂
    Thanks for this post.

  • I MUST visit Northern Ireland, that image looks dreamy. Looks like a place of great inspiration. Great job Ericha!
