Here I am with a new blog, a new look and a new me. Not in too much of drastic or dramatic way, but more of a new outlook. Gone are the days where I’m worried about what others think about me, where I’m too scared to go after what I want because I’m scared of failure. 2018 is the time for me to do me.
So. This is what the plan is:
There’s going to be no rules. No schedule I’m going to force myself to stick to, stressing myself out and pressuring myself unnecessarily, which also means I won’t be churning out less-than-fabulous content.
I’m not going to expect things to just magically fall into my lap. Whatever it is I want, I’m going to have to go out and get it myself. Which is exactly what I’m going to do. Over the last few months I’ve put my all into my photography, I’d let it slip far too long, putting myself and my work out there, instead of insisting “I’m not good enough yet” or “it’s not the right time”, because when will the right time be?
So I’ve taken a few leaps of faith. I’ve worked with a local band a few time, I’ve booked my first wedding, I’ve forced my best mates into modelling for me without shame or embarrassment. Because it’s not just going to come to me.
I’m proud of how bold I’ve become, honestly. A year ago I’d never have dared to show my work to people, especially not just whack it up on Instagram along with all the #photographer tags along with it. Who do I think I am, calling myself a photographer? But that’s exactly it. WHY NOT?
I’m determined to make 2018 the year of me pushing myself and really getting myself OUT there, so watch this space, hopefully you’ll be seeing more of me…
