Lately, I have been feeling stuck, feeling unhappy. I fell into the trap of comparing my life with others (hmmm Facebook and Pinterest!) and it felt like I was not living my life to its fullest
The What’s Next Tour was coming to Washington D.C., hosted by Justin & Mary Marantz, two amazing photographers committed to help others succeed. And that was the kick that I needed!
Mary gave a talk about not being afraid to reach for your dreams, and to stop comparing your beginning to someone’s middle. I realized that my dreams were not just opportunities, but rather as obligations to myself, my husband, our son, and finally to my mother who has sacrificed so much so that I could chase my dreams, and truly live my life.
As Bono sings “Sometimes you just can’t make it on your own” (and you know how much I LOVE U2!). Sometimes you just need some tough love. And that’s what this What’s Next event gave me. It was an eye opener.
So this is what I’m doing, not being afraid to ask. This is what gets me fired up: being a storyteller with my photography.
