I’m venturing in new territories, carving a new career for myself as a Photographer (here we go I said it!) and I would say that 90% of the time, I’m on a high, eager to learn, to see how much progress I’m making on all accounts from posing, lighting and editing on Lightroom and Photoshop, hugely grateful to all these people who are kind enough to trust me and pay me to take their portrait and then once in a while the 10% hit me in the face like a truck and I feel like s**t.
Today is one of those days.
I’m tired, my body is aching and I feel like whatever I do is not good enough and I will never be the Photographer I want to be because of course, I don’t want to be an average Photographer :-) I want to be a really good one!
But I know the pattern and I know how destructive and negative this path can be so I’m going to close down my computer, head to Montparnasse to catch my train back home to my gorgeous daughter and my People from the Sea and listen to Louise Hay’s positive affirmations for the next three hours.
And tomorrow morning, I will make myself a nice cup of green tea, breathe slowly and get back on the flipping horse because I’m not a quitter and I will become a great Photographer.
What’s your tips to deal with these awful moments of doubts beside saying the above which cracks me up because swearing in English never felt like proper swearing to me? :-)
