I’ll make this short. I promise.
First off, to all my dear friends, family and fellow photographers, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but this is not a photography post. No, I can’t say that I have new stuff for you to check out at this present time.
I know. But before you shake your had and chalk up my lack of productivity to lack of motivation and drive, let me just say this: I am gearing up to get back on the horse, camera in hand, as early as tomorrow.
Now that I’ve gotten the pleasantries out of the way, let me take a moment to disclose this bit of information: I’ve been sitting on this post for a while now. It’s hard for me to write when it feels like I’ve been sinking in quicksand with no life line. Working to pull myself out and dust myself off hasn’t been easy. Fortunately, despite the adversity and resultant disappointments I’ve faced over the last six months, I’ve gained a bit of clarity regarding those action steps that must be taken in order to help me fulfill what I believe to be my life’s purpose. With that said, my life has become a lot more manageable, but as with anything that takes time to develop, to blossom and to manifest, these things take time (had plenty of that), and patience (had not a lot of this).
The biggest takeaway from all that I’ve endured? Fear and self-doubt are the true enemies of the good.
