Photography

The Country Girl Editorial

As my move to Barcelona gets closer and closer, I have become swamped with thoughts about where I am in my life and where I want to be. I make comparisons between myself and others and plan how I can make my life better. But by doing this am I truly living? I’m not experiencing day to day and I’m living a few steps ahead of myself. In a society obsessed with technology living in the moment has just become a thing of the past. We’re the generation of social media, every detail of our life is photographed, published and shared with the world – but it’s never enough. We’re no longer satisfied by what we have and instead admire the extravagant lives of those we see online. It’s these desires that drives us to expect more or at least something different.

Counting down the last few days before I move, I realised I spend a lot of time waiting for what’s happening next. My summer was mostly a blur… an anticipation of what’s coming and constantly living in the future. It wasn’t until I launched my website a few weeks ago that it gave me a reason to be excited now. Finally I developed a focus which I wouldn’t of had otherwise. I began to wake up every morning excited for the day, with a list of things I wanted to do. Getting into a cycle of waking up and setting goals for the day is really useful for keeping active and productive.

If we’re always more excited about the future than the present, how can we expect to make the most out of life? Regardless of how much we wish for something to go faster, nothing will change, so its important to make the effort to enjoy it.

Because I am actually approaching my final few days in Geneva I thought I would make the most of the idealic Swiss countryside for this editorial. I am definitely going to miss the stunning landscapes and sunlight. It will be interesting to see how my work develops as I make the transition from countryside to city centre. Enjoy!

    Love all your looks, and the move sounds exciting! I’ve worked abroad twice and have lived in 3 countries – moving and embracing change all the time is a liberating thing to do. 🙂 Barcelona is such a great city with lots of good food. Have an incredible time!
