Becoming a photographer has teach me so much about the nature of learning and about myself. When I was just starting out I doubted my talents all the time and I compared myself to better ones, to photographers who had years more experience than I did. As crazy as it sounds, it still is so easy for us to do that without thinking how it only makes harder to ENJOY the whole creative process! You know… how much fun it would be, if everytime we would get interested of something we would instantly master it. Now, that would be impression of a quite boring life. The joy is really in the process and we humans, we get fueled from challenges.
Somewhere in the middle of my journey I just got it …things started to change for me. I now understand that I can learn what ever I want, if I just keep trying and believe in myself. Today I embrace the learning and trying process, creativity in me. Failing is a big part of that process – if you are willing to learn from it – only thing it does is, that it moves you forward, closer to your goals and dreams.
Failing is an inseparable part of any learning and growing in life. That shows you what is not working and helps you find what is working.
If you have just failed that can mean to you that you now know better and are now one step closer to your goal.
Even when it feels like you are not going forward – you usually still are. Just have faith…
Every progress in life happens quite slowly and we humans, we would always already like to be there. There is no strait line to anything. Learning and growing is a process and only much later you realize that you truly made it there. Usually only after you are on your next round already…
Have a wonderful Saturday <3
