The truth is...
This is my "office." It's not very sexy...but man, some pretty pictures are made here. I don't like talking about my work that much. Not sure why...well, I don't want to bore you that's for sure. And I don't like to be boastful. But I love my work and I want to talk about something important.
I want to talk about dreams and hope. Just hang in there with me, OK?
For a very long time I was afraid. I was afraid to go after my dream. And I was certainly afraid to dream big. Why? Because I was afraid to fail. And I was afraid that I didn't know enough, or was capable of learning a bunch of new things, or...or...or. Now, I love photography, especially food photography, and it was when I finally "honed" in on what it was I really loved to shoot...everything changed. Now it did not change over night...oh no...it was years in the making. But over time, and the more I practiced, and the more I put myself out there...I noticed the doors. It was a bit of an "ah ha!" moment. I won't lie...some doors slamed in my face. Some doors said no soliciting. Some doors looked promising only to be false advertising. But then one day...a door opened and I was welcomed in. And my life changed.
So what I am trying to say is this...don't ever ever ever give up on your dreams. Don't ever say you can't do it. Because you can. Will you have to work hard? Yes. Will you have to take a few kicks in the shins? Probably. Will your ego get bruised? Uh huh. Will you have to push your comfort boundaries? Hell yes! Will you be scared shitless? FOR SURE! Will you want to give up? Some days. But don't do that...just breathe and go for it.
Your dream is real. Own it.
