If anyone has known me for a long time you may know that I've always been that little weirdo who obsessed over music growing up. The kid with the band shirts listening to music in the hallways. When I first heard about this little band called Pearl Jam my whole life changed. It was the first band that I connected with on a deeper level. The band that I'll drive far away for and wait hours and hours in the line to see them close up. It's that band that I cannot go a day without listening to because they mean that much to me.
Well today, I received approval to take photos of Pearl Jam in October. A few hours later I also got approved for another band that means a lot to me -- Alice in Chains. I am in complete shock and I swear this time I had to punch myself real hard to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I'm not writing these posts to brag or show off the things I get to see/do - I do this hoping to inspire someone, anyone. I was that little weirdo with a dream to work with the music that I love and I never stopped believing in myself no matter how crazy it felt at times. The fact that I NEVER stopped believing in myself is the reason I want to tell you to pursue whatever it is you truly want to do in life. We all have the potential to do anything we want as long as we do it with passion and never give up even when the world wants to bring us down.
Every single time someone tells you that you can't do something - smile and just use that as fuel to keep on going and prove them wrong. Don't be afraid to take a risk/chance… if I never did I don't think I could ever experience the happiness that I am feeling right now. . .
