Right now I am just going through the learning process with what I prefer and what I would not prefer pertaining to fashion – as far as photography and design is concerned. Although I may just remain in this phase for as long as I live..
But you know what, that’s okay. There really is nothing wrong with learning the little aspects of yourself and sticking through with it. I believe that is how you know you are one step or a few steps closer to living your life to its potential.
Your only limit is the limit you are setting for yourself.
I have come to accept this fact that stepping out of your comfort zone is the only way you can really learn what it is you want or don’t want. How would you know if you do not try? Doing something out of the ordinary will open new doors / opportunities to feed that potential.
And no, I’m not suggesting that you do something super crazy like jump off a cliff, or go tackle a mountain lion – I am only implying that setting your boundaries only limits yourself to the endless possibilities that you may encounter. It is just in a matter of taking control of your own life by making the decisions you feel would nurture your growth.
Through taking little photo trips around different cities or locally, to reading design blogs (specifically Danny Choo’s Design Philosophy – which makes a lot of sense to me) and hunting for fashion books (I had recently picked up Rachel Roy’s Design Your Life – very inspirational and moving) I am slowly obtaining a peculiar perspective about how I want to portray myself as an artist, designer, photographer, and as well as an individual that eats and breathes in this vast world.
It is not something that will happen overnight, but it may take a lifetime of exploring for me to find that specific niche. For others, probably shorter.
And that’s okay.
