It's crazy that I've gone from sleeping in shipping containers and on beaches to luxury hotels on big assignments.

Today was one of those days that kind of jolted my gratitude. It's easy, I think to forget where we come from. It's for those who only see our successes to not understand where we came from too. 6 years ago I was in Africa. Sometimes I would sleep in shady hotels, sometimes Catholic missions, and one time I had to sleep in a shipping container with 40 other people.
These days, I'm very fortunate. I have a really nice assignment right now with the Marriott. The trip has been amazing, and I've definitely gotten a bit of luxury.
And the luxury is great. I'm not going to ever complain about it. But, I think it's important that every time I walk into a luxury hotel I need to remember the tough times. It makes the stay even more sweet, and it also makes me appreciate the struggle.
Tomorrow, there's another photography vlog from here in San Antonio.
