In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/work-optional/
If money was optional would I still work? Now that depends on your definition of work. If work is what I term modern day slavery where we have simply exchanged our physical shackles for mental ones and golden handcuffs, then no.
I would not work a single day. I would simply follow my heart and do what I love doing. That is reading books, writing taking photographs like the one below and enjoying music.
I am fortunate that my “work” involves writing, taking photographs and making videos. I spend all day blogging, creating content for our social media platforms and chatting online.
That is a way of life for me and I don’t call it work. I do what I love and it gives me great satisfaction. Money is not the objective but personal fulfilment is.
I don’t really get why people go insane over useless pieces of papers. If food ran out we would not be able to eat money.
So the whole thing about money really eludes me. And I don’t understand people who do jobs they hate simply to make money. That is my idea of hell.
If people were not so obsessed with money, I could do without it.
If money was optional, I would continue living life through my lens taking photos of everything I find beautiful and love. I feel like I could take photographs of the sun rising or setting like the one below because it is such a beautiful sight.
I would barter my services for things that I need and grow food. I would have more time to do things for myself. I would travel the world taking photographs, listening to music and reading books.
I don’t think I could live without my camera by my side. It is my friend and my companion on my journey. It goes places with me and we share the memories it captures on its sensor.
It is a pity my Fujifilm HS20EXR cannot talk because it is faithful and trustworthy and has never let me down.
If money was optional, I would spend my days devoting myself to the mastery of my craft and creating images and projects that fulfil my arty side.
