From Where I Stand

I for one have always been a little off my rocker.
A big fantasizer, introverted yet extremely extroverted, quite yet loud, happy yet never completely satisfied.
I've been having a lot of me time lately and what I've noticed is that people in general 
a. have no concept of being alone and
b. are terrified of the those who choose to be.
I scare people - I wear my heart on my sleeve (and on this blog) and most people just don't understand that.
But it has become my solace, my therapy and something that is entirely me.

I read a quote somewhere that said 
"If you are lonely when you're alone, you are in bad company".
And it hit home.

So I decided to take baby steps in bettering myself and who I am solely based on Emily.
My thoughts, my interests, where I want to be and who I want to be there with.
As I look at the world around me I can't help but feel a bit sad...
Almost everyone I know is defined by people and/or possesions.
They have lost sight of who they are, what they like, who they want to be and where they want to go.
I noticed that of myself months ago - I felt awkward in my own skin as I tried to be something I wasn't.

So I started taking little morning walks.
Alone in my thoughts and in the warm summer air I began to do a series of 
"From Where I Stand" photos of my feet.
Contemplating what my life stands for and where I want to go.

What does your life stand for...from where you stand and where do you want it to go?



  1. Love this. And couldn't agree more!

  2. Emily, this is beautiful!! I'm kind of going through the same thing. K & I have always been, "the twins". & now, I'm trying to figure out who I am by myself.

    I'm glad I'm not alone -- I mean everyone goes through this, but it's nice to hear your spin on it because I love it & the way you write!

    xo, B


Thank you so very much for all your comments they mean the world to me! Keep spreading the love and inspiration. xo ejc
