THE FUNNY THING ABOUT LIFE IS THAT IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO COME FULL CIRCLE AND I FIND MYSELF TODAY IN THE SAME PLACE I WAS SO MANY YEARS AGO.
I am thinking about what use to be, flash back to 2010. I thought I had stepped out of my boots for the last time, my life was changing and I decided to take a huge detour. I sold my animals and moved to the big city! My DREAMS were big but calculated and I was ready to go!
Don't let this face fool you, after a life that was filled with successes that were driven be making sacrifices to achieve the next big thing...I crashed, and oh let me tell you-I crashed hard. My entire world came crumbled around me and I was left without a PATH, or at least that is what I had thought. Yet somehow...even after everything that has happened, today I find myself slipping back into a pair of boots.
I think it was this- I realized the path had always been right there in front of me. No matter how hard a tried to run from it or change it before, my path had always been there. At the lowest of lows I asked myself...Where had all my discipline, work ethic and morals come from over the years?
These Durango Boots represent so much more than a piece of clothing, they represent getting back to my roots. They represent who I have really been all along, whether I knew it or not. They represent the leap I took in choosing to become a western inspired photographer. They represent the blood and sweat my family has put into feeding this country. Most importantly they represent my PATH.
So here I am, 2018. Officially apart of the Durango Boot Team as a Brand Advocate! There is no telling where these Durango Dream Catchers are going to take me next.
