Photo Challenge: Belonging and Achievement

Belonging and Achievement

Belonging and Achievement

Scanning through my photo catalog for a good interpretation of “Belonging” (the theme for Where’s My Backpack), I settled on this portrait of my collegiate son. We recently had some fun doing a photo shoot  of just him playing  guitar on our deck. I chose this photo because it represents the sense of belonging that playing guitar has given him over the years.

Processing the image for this post,  I started thinking about the relationship between belonging and achievement, but more importantly how those two things impact each other.  As an adolescent, learning to play was a significant achievement for him. When he first started, music was a fun and entertaining past-time. Later, he became more serious about performing and really understanding what it means to be a musician and belonging to a community of musicians.

Have you ever noticed that – the relationship between belonging and achievement?

If you want to see more examples of these two things, you can check out ‘belonging’ here (Where’s My Backpack) and ‘achievement’ here (Weekly Photo Challenge)
