It happens to the best of us, creative lulls. Many artists speak of them, I know I am not alone.
And then out of what feels like nowhere, an influx of creativity hits all at once. It flows so quickly, it sometimes scares me that I’ll miss the high because I know all too well that they do not last. Ebb & flow, if you will. I am always looking inward and observing what each of the “ebbs” are trying to teach me and wanting nothing more for those “flows” to push me outward to new places.
Slowly and surely, I have learned to push myself creatively and embody my soul into my work as it is the path that separates my work from others. I believe in my own success and I often take risks to ensure that I stay evolving. I pride myself in not allowing the “what ifs” to stop me from driving forward. The excitement of the journey, both in the hustle as well as in the slower times, has me constantly thinking of new ways to step out and showcase those exact moments.
In the last few months, I have been involved in some pretty awesome projects. And because of that amazing connection to my work, I have found myself, more than usual, setting my shot, pressing the shutter and just knowing without a single doubt I nailed it before I even viewed the image. And it is here, that exact place that I am reminded of why I belong doing what I do. I am sharing those exact moments because they are what give me a very real reminder of why I keep on keeping on.
