THEME2 - REFLECTION

NEED TO LET THIS OUT.......

I've taken this photo at St. James Cathedral in Piccadilly Circus.  I took a bus from Victoria after work and decided to visit churches that I will pass by.  It was a sunny afternoon.  I've entered the church and went straight away to the prayer request section.  I'm not a Catholic but I love  reading prayer requests and taking pictures of lighted candles.  The church was in a complete silence and this is what I love doing when I was still in London, to have some quiet time.  I remember sitting in the middle of the church, allowing the soft wind to touch my skin, looking at the shadows that the sun can produce, the ceiling on top of me admiring its architecture. 

I sat for about thirty minutes thinking about my life and finding myself.  It was one of those times that I was struggling with my decision if going home to practice photography was the right thing to do.  I just thought that I will get more practice, contacts and a good career if I'll go home and use my qualifications abroad.  But I have to sacrifice my life in the city of London, leave half of my family, quit my job and bid farewell to my friends because no one knows when their gonna see me again.  Its a decision that will put change in my life.

Now that I'm back home, I guess I made the right choice.  Although I've been missing the place and the people I know that I'm on the right track.  I just realize how brave I am and I can stand up for what I think is right.  I want to thank God for guiding me all throughout.
