FAILURE. It used to haunt me.
It is one of those inevitable things, big part of life. This year I celebrated my 4th year as a photographer. As my oldest turned 5, and my little one is just 2. Never before this year have I failed at so much. I started the year so strong. Full of ideas and inspiration. Wanting to do this or that. The new year rush is invigorating. But then my group failed, then shoots I was attempting failed, stuff I submitted for fell through. About 99 % of new things I tried failed. I try and blame lack of time or organization, but truth be told it was probably not meant to be. But along with the failure came so much learning. & the realization that those things that did work out, would have never happened with the courage to put myself out there. I am excited to do that again in 2017.
I’m excited to learn. To teach and share what I know as much as I can. God knows I suck at explaining. Sorry guys. 2017 is just going to be bigger and better! I just know it. So cheers friends! May you all have a Happy NYE, and here is a big cheer to those exploring, and learning, doing, creating and all of the magic that is Photography.
& yeah. I failed at my 366. but whatevs there’s always next year.
MY NEW YEARS RESOLUTION : to fail more.
