“Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you.”
I think there is probably no better way to express what life is like. Last year the bear ate me. Due to some severe health problems I had to fight a lot – also with myself. In addition, I was forced to postpone my long planned photographic project, which was niggling me even more.
These days I remembered what an old acquaintance often used to say: “There’s no advantage without a disadvantage!” I’m not sure if this phrase always holds its truth, but in this special case I would like to turn the tables and try to focus on the advantages this difficult situation has brought about. I will have more to say about this in another post.
What is most important, though, is that I was able to figure out a new beginning and I hopefully can start the project and the journey very soon. Better late than never…
So let’s see if in 2017 I will be able to eat the bear. 🙂
