At the time I had been debating owning my story that I want to get better at photography. I have always wanted to be a photographer. It was always on my list. Does this mean I have to quit my job, quit everything to make a dramatic scene to make this happen? No, I really don't think so. Keeping my family fed and happy is very important to me. Plus, I really like being a physical therapist. But I know that following inspiration really helps me be a better person in all areas of my life.
But I can keep taking steps towards improving my photography and see where it leads. If anything, I hope to continue improve my photography for me, my family and my friends. To help inspire us to live in the moment and capture + tell our stories.
So to answer Ali's question I wrote this:
Something like a "One Thing" prompt: I know you've done a similar thing before. Maybe blend it with the Battle prompt. It's that one thing that you are going to be be vulnerable and put yourself out there and just do. (can you tell I've been reading Brene Brown?) Maybe a twist on that would be to have an adventure with our word. Make a plan and do the "one thing" that has been in your mind and heart that you just haven't done because of ….. (fear, shame, time, whatever.)
So that very day I decided to take my own challenge and go for it. I registered to go to a photography conference that I had been debating attending for about three months or more!
And tomorrow morning I head out to go to my first photography conference where I don't know anyone and I'm so excited!!
I've signed up for a video storytelling class, an unposed boutique and my Golden Hour class is going to be about Light Play! hello…my One Little Word is dancing all around me right now!
And I get to hear and hopefully meet Karen Walrond! How awesome is that? Her tagline is "Look for the Light" and if there is anyone to help me get inspired about a possible career / life change, I would guess she would be a great one for gaining inspiration.
Okay, so I'm nervous but also excited. And it's time to get packing.
How about you? How is your One Little Word reaching out to you right now? Are you reaching back and following your inspiration?
I hereby challenge you to "Do the One Thing!"
Let's go have an adventure with our word!
