Week 143: The Greatest Emotion.

As humans, we are one of the only species that can control our emotions. This isn't to say that other animals don't have emotions. We just have the capability to control the way we feel, suppressing certain feelings to exaggerate others. Everyone has moments in their life when they feel emotionally lost. When you sit down and think about the emotions you prioritise, you can get a little muddled up in your own way of thinking. If the problem you have is in your mind, then how can you use your mind to find your way out? So I try and think of my favourite emotion, it sounds strange, but it's harder than you may think. I do not know what the greatest emotion is. A lot of people would think that happiness is the greatest emotion of all, but in all honesty, I cannot say that I classify it as an emotion but rather a state of mind of being content. If there is anything I probably will never reach, it is a state of being content. It comes with the occupation, being a photographer means you are also a perfectionist. Most professionals of other mediums (also known as "artists") will agree with this; if you are a perfectionist, you will never be content.

Thanks for reading.

The book she was reading was a times table colouring book that she seemed to love so much. Seconds after this photograph was taken, the little girl dropped her book. It flew off in the wind like a tumble weed, we chased it for her and tried to get it back but to our surprise she shouted and told us to let it go, giggling to herself. We managed to get it back for her but that command to just let it go flicked a switch inside my head somewhere. It just made me think, she is completely content with what she has, no matter what she loses or what she gains. Pretty inspiring when you think about it.

Song listening to right now: Monument - Miss May I
