When I was a little girl I was shy, quiet and quite often off in my own imaginary land where I felt nothing could hurt me. I spent most of my time running around in the forestry where my parents owned a house, rather than hanging out with friends in town. I had issues communicating with others, no one was interested in the things I was interested in, I saw the world in a completely different way to what other kids my age did. I wanted to take pictures with my eyes the moment I saw something beautiful, I wanted people to see what I saw, I wanted everyone to see the world through amazing and beautiful photographs that capture the essensce of the world we live in, but I was so young, parents thought I was naive, kids thought I was weird, so I allowed myself to ignore their opinions and slip away into my world where anything was possible.
I missed out on a lot of school as a child, I never wanted to face the constant pain that children were capable of inflicting on me. My mother didnt mind, she was quiet happy to have me home with her to help her out around the house when I wasnt out seeing things I wanted to see. My mother and I were close, she was my guardian angel, she helped me through lifes difficulties, she was always there to hold me when I wanted to cry. I look up to my mother, she is my idol. I used to sit behind her chair on the ground, pretending to play with my dolls, and secretly watch her painting one of her masterpieces. As I grew up I found myself looking more and more like her, my heart skips a beat when I get told I look so much like her, she is beautiful.
I told my mother once that I wanted to be an artist like her, she told me that I have to find what I am good at and take baby steps until I make it to the place I want to be. So I've tried many different things, like dance, music and art, and my mother has been with me every step of the way, giving me guidence if I find myself walking off the path and applauding me when I get something right. I may not be at the place I want to be at just yet, but I know that I am well on the way to getting there, whether its in something I want to be or just life in general, I am following my mothers advice and taking baby steps until I get there.
Never give up hope, because you never know what might be around the corner. always listen to what your mother or father has to say, they are full of wisdom. Trust me.
