Behind the Image
Taken in Rishikesh, India, this scene was the view outside one of the places I was staying during my first stint in India. I couldn’t believe this was my daily view, but it was.
I had always wanted to go to India. While growing up I wished I could go, even for one day. When I was finally able to live out my dream I ended up staying six months the first time and three months the second for a total of nine months spent traveling across India.
I couldn’t have foreseen ever spending this much time in a place I had only ever hoped I’d one day be able to see, but I kept the dream alive. I told everyone I was going to go one day. Most people didn’t believe me, but that’s where faith plays it’s part.
Faith in yourself, to create the future you want to live and to not care if anyone else thinks you can do it or not. Knowing that you can and will accomplish your goals is enough and if it is, absolutely anything is truly possible.
