Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?
:) I’m so happy it helped you! No problem at all. I really, really do hope you follow your dreams and do what YOU truly want! xx
Why thank you! I’ve neglected it for so long and I feel so bad about that… there’s so much going on right now, but once it all settles down a bit, I hope to get the ball rolling with this Tumblr again.
Aw, I’m sorry. To be honest, my family were the ones who pushed me to do it because they always knew it’s something I’ve always loved and toyed with ever since I was younger. In the beginning, I did what they wanted or at least close to it, but I failed miserably… I feel like I’ve wasted so many years being miserable because I kept doing what I THOUGHT I was suppose to be doing, not what I actually wanted. Or I would try so hard to convince myself that what my family (and other outside opinions) wanted for me was what I wanted as well even though deep down I really knew it wasn’t.
So, my dear, my advice to you would be to follow your heart, follow what you feel and know is right for you, no matter what anyone thinks or says. I know that seems cliche and actually really, really hard to do, but trust me when I say it can and will save you a lot of time, frustration, and heartache. It’s a wonderful feeling doing something that you really want to do despite the naysayers. It’s kind of scary and at times it feels like you’re in over your head and so out of your comfort zone, but I swear the risk is worth it. As long as your heart is in it, you’re willing to work hard and persevere, keep a positive attitude, and keep moving forward, no one and nothing can stop you. :) and man, what an amazing feeling it is to know you’re following your dreams! It really is somethin’ else… but in the most beautiful way.
Sorry this is so long and a little off topic! Haha. But I hope it helps! And may you have the courage to follow your dreams, every single one of ‘em! xx
