Quote of the day: “My mind tells me to give up, but my heart won’t let me.” — Unknown
It’s been a challenging week to stay on track. Just when I start feeling like I’ve turned the corner and left fear and doubt behind, they crop up again and I begin to wonder whether I should be looking harder for a traditional “job” instead of forging a path into this unknown entrepreneurial realm. Right after I posted my first blog post and shared my photography website, the voices of my inner critic went wild. “What do you think you’re doing? Who do you think you are? Why would anyone want to read your blog or see your photography?”
My answer to those doubts is, “I know you’re scared. It’s ok. Fear is a part of the process. This is not a popularity contest. It’s not about doing the safe thing or what everyone else is doing. It’s about living my life fully each day. It’s about doing what makes my heart sing. It’s about listening and seeing and being.” Yesterday, while I was out for a sunrise shoot, I happened to see this wonderful tattered leaf on the path I was walking on. Tattered, but not broken and amazingly beautiful. A reminder that listening to my heart’s song is my path.
