Happy Holidays!

This is a shot from my archives, from a recent photoshoot. I haven't been taking a lot of photos lately, nor have I been very active on here. The truth is that I lost my job of 15 years in October, the day I came back from my honeymoon, and I've been feeling a bit down because of that. Most of my time is spent looking for work and there are not a lot of opportunities right now. Fast forward two months, I'm now starting to feel more optimistic and I look at the world differently. There are people in far worse shape than I am. I have loved ones suffering from cancer, I see people fleeing their country because of wars, and here I am, complaining about a simple job loss. It's all relative and you have to go through the emotions I guess. Like William James once said, pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power. I choose to be positive. Time to head out and snap a few macros! :o)
