Work or Work that Matters?

What’s more important? Working a job that you will go far in or working on shit that matters? I’ve come to a pivotal point in my life where I have to make a choice about what the hell I want to invest my time into. Take the traditional route and be an employee or “employ” myself and work on things that matter to me. I browse through my tumblr and I marvel at the people who are able to use their cameras and make amazing images using the same gear that I have and I wonder how and if I could ever do that. I know I want to do something that matters to me, but where do I start. What do I spend my time doing if I want to pursue what matters? I guess my question really is where do I go from here? 

4 months ago my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer.

She underwent chemo all during the summer. 

The Doctors told her that her tumor could be potentially be removed. 

She went to Houston of August the 13th. 

Her Surgery was on the 15th. 

This past weekend I went to Houston to see her after her surgery. 

As I was catching a bus to the hospital I saw this on the bus stop cover. 

Her surgery went as successful as possible is what the doctor said. 

Today she was told she was 100% cancer free. 

Thank You God and MD Anderson.
