Words are like weapons

Back to reality today – part of me wants to head off again – well I will be next week but more about that later. There I was minding my own business today when I got told “Anyone can take a photo” – said to me – out of nowhere.

Luckily I’m in a much better place these days and my internal voice told me that’s their opinion and yes indeed anyone can take a photo – but not necessarily a good one. A few months ago I would have been hurt and upset especially when the conversation went on to name fantastic photographers out there. I don’t actually consider myself a photographer, I take photos but I’m not a photographer. I cook dinners but I’m not a cooker 😉

I was just thinking would people go up to the likes of Jamie Oliver or whoever and say anyone can cook a dinner? Anyway that was my welcome back to Ireland.

    Words are amazing. They are used to build and heal and to diminish or wound. It’s the energy behind utterance that makes the difference.
