What I Need to Hear
A little pep talk with myself...
No one said this was going to be easy. That which is easy is rarely worth our time. As dad said, 'if it was easy, everyone would do it'. Four months from now, you will look back through your portfolio in awe of your work's transformation. I promise, you will, but you have to let go, stop worrying. Instead of trying hard, simply work hard. Transformation will not come from a place of fear. Fear repels growth. You are relearning how to see. You must be very patient with yourself, because like fear, frustration is stunting. And remember, procrastination is perfectionism's minion, you'll rarely encounter one without the other. Be brave, be open to mistakes, and most importantly, be patient. And take pictures. Lots of pictures.
