Recently we had to deal with a loss of a relative so naturally, it got me and my partner talking about all the topics related to grieving. We discussed what we would do in case something happened to the other one. Both of us agreed that we would go on a solo trip to clear up the mind and give it some time.
If you are someone who is on a never-ending quest for self-improvement, you will be well aware that you need to adopt a holistic approach if you are to make the greatest strides. In general, that means that you need to try and improve upon all areas of your life at once, not just one or two. This is something that most people find to be quite difficult, but the truth is that it is the only way to really get to great improvements with regards to yourself. That is why I came a cross several areas of life I need to work on and probably you should, too. As long as you are working on these parts of your life, you will find that you can easily see improvements across the board, so these are all good places to start off from.
The Back Story.
The meaning of social and communication skills is something that has got me thinking for years. I have always been wondering why I am an introvert person and how to change that for my own good. One thing I know for sure- when you start doing something you love it gets easier to break out of your comfort zone.
But let’s start from the beginning…
This one right here is the place where I grew up:
These days it feels like every second person buys a DSLR and creates their own Facebook Photography Page. This is why every day it gets harder to get into photography business and get actually paid for the work you do. At times it can be very hard to tell an amateur apart from a semi-professional. No wonder why people expect young photographers to do their work for free. What they don’t understand is that every professional once was an amateur so the question is – how to break free from being seen as an amateur and to become a full-time photographer who can pay bills with an actual money instead of just receiving a permission to use pictures.
Previously I wrote a little bit about People I Met in Norway, Bulgaria and Latvia. This time I want to dedicate my thoughts to Turkey. Actually, to Istanbul, if we want to get more into details. This time story will be not only about foreigners who live here, but about people in general.
This is the third country that inspired me to continue collecting foreigner stories on their life journey in another country. First was the stories of people who live in my own country “People I Met In Latvia” and then it continued with “People I Met In Bulgaria”.
I had a couple of days to spend in Norway and that gave me a chance to collect the following two stories of two couples I met in Norway.
