Why do you do what you do?

Do you ever ask yourself this question? Do you ever wonder what makes you make the choices you make?

Last week someone asked me why I still have this blog and I was speechless. Um, what do you mean by "still"? Was there a reason I should have stopped that I am not aware of? I sat for a minute and pondered the question. Why do I have this blog?

Well, as the name of my blog says, Life with Dylan Inspires me to see the world a little differently than I did before. So I guess this is where someone could use the word, still.

Yes, the subject matter of my blog changed a few years ago, but that is because my muse changed. What inspires me to write and to share changed. So why do I continue?

I am a writer - and writers need to write. I am a photographer - and photographers need to share their pictures.

As a conservationist, I have a passion for saving the world. Can one person save the world? Probably not, but one person can make a difference ... and I intend to do just that by creating awareness. Whether one person or a hundred people read what I write does not matter to me. What does matter to me is that the people who do read my blog are inspired in some small way to make a difference of their own.

Maybe I will inspire someone to start recycling, or to make that photography hobby a way to share the world with others. Maybe I will teach someone about an endangered animal and maybe, just maybe they will share what they learned. You see, sharing is the foundation of creating awareness.

I write because I want to share. I share what I am passionate about.

Writing and taking pictures makes me happy.

So, back to the question. Why do I do what I do?

Because it makes me happy.
