An Eighteen Year Old Who Has Much To Teach To The World

http://blog.flickr.net/2013/02/14/18-year-old-prodigy-photographer/

Olivia Bee is an 18-year old with an amazing talent. She has been sought after by some of the world’s biggest brands since she was 15 for her incredible photography.

While I agree that her work is stunning, it is her wisdom with which I am most impressed:

“You can do this for a living?!? Sign me up!”

“I’m really inspired by daily life and the beauty that can hold.”

“I love what I do, and think it really shows in my work.”

“It helps me to really appreciate evry single day.”

“Don’t focus on success in terms of money and fame. That won’t mean anything. Focus on success in terms of doing what you love and what makes you happy.”

That’s one wise teenager!

          Wow! Thank you for the wonderful compliments. I’m technically challenged too, and had (and sometimes still have) similar issues with “following” people. One thing I found fairly recently is that if a blog has two places to click “follow” on the site, one near the top of their page and one in the right column of their home page, if I clicked “follow” in the right column I got emails from a lot more of the blogs that I wanted than if I clicked the top “follow” button. You might check to see if there is a right column “follow” button on the blogs you want to receive emails from but aren’t, and check to see if it still says “You are following”. If it doesn’t say that, click “Follow” in the right column again,
