Believe in yourself

Me in Ta Phrom, Siem Reap, Cambodia

“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, you can achieve.” ~ Mary Kay Ash

Just little old me last year posing in one of the fascinating mythical ruins in Ta Phrom, Siem Reap, Cambodia where the movie Tomb Raider was filmed years ago.  The guides will always incorporate it in their script with pride, showing the paths where Angelina Jolie ran across to fight the bad guys.

This Hollywood exposure has catapulted the country to fame, and brought in heavy tourist influx in the years since then.  Today,  it has since tripled immensely that you can’t take a shot without having several tourists in your pictures.

I’ve always wanted to be Lara Croft, with the camera as my weapon.  Years ago, I’ve only  aspired to be able to reach historical sites and share my photos to the world.  Since then, I’ve been to a few more world heritage sites that opened my mind to other opportunities and possibilities.

The quote above is true.  You can go as far as your mind lets you, so do not limit yourself.  Believe, and you can achieve.  This is what passion is all about.  :-)
