What Will I Embarrass Myself At This Year?
If you don't follow Dirtbag Darling, you should. I will embarrass myself right now by admitting I have a total girl crush on Johnie Gall and wish I was friends with her. But I digress. She recently wrote a piece titled "What Will You Embarrass Yourself At This Year?" and I am here to answer that question.
With each new year, I reflect on the fact that while I love my life, and am successful with what I have done thus far, I'm not actually doing what I want to be doing. I don't know what it is that I actually want, but I know that something is lacking. I'm stalling. I'm coming up with random projects to avoid working on the one project I really need to be working on. And that is my own photography, my own writing, my own work. Just for me. Because I want to.
This year, the year I turn 30, I am trying something new. I'm going to fully follow my gut and do what I love to do. I'm going to be outside as much as possible. I am going to lug my camera around unapologetically, I'm going to write even though I'm really not that great of a writer. I'm going to try new activities, one's I already know I won't become a master at, but that's the point. Why must I master something in order to enjoy it? No content mapping, no specific focus. I'm just going to throw it all out on the table and see what happens, probably embarrassing myself greatly along the way. Cheers to 2017!
