Its easy to talk myself into not doing something.
I have thoughts that run around in my head that say “you’re not good enough”, “at your age?”or “it’s going to be an impossible task”. That’s followed by “you’re gonna fail”, “you’re going to embarrass yourself” and “who do you think you are?”
But I also hear another voice that shouts back, “Yes, you can do it!” and “Just try” and “Don’t stop – Keep going!”
Often I don’t know exactly where I’ll end up or what will happen along the path, but I’ve found that what happens to me over and over again is this: If I just start, wonderful things do happen.
In this case, it started about two weeks ago when I asked Caren if she would do some photography with me. I didn’t really know her that well. I didn’t know exactly what we’d do if she agreed. But she said yes and the rest just unfolded for us, resulting in some of the best pictures I’ve ever taken.
Saturday, I took one of those pictures and by Sunday night, I had this image.
Just start. Wonderful things will happen.
