I am feeling taped out. No inspiration. As if everything has already been done by somebody else. Be it photography, writing, decorating, clothing, etc...I feel as if I have run out of ideas, and that is NO GOOD!
I guess the fact that the business I have been trying to start seems to be falling flat on it's face. Perhaps it is due to the fact that I waited 10 years too long to dive into what I have always wanted to do, and now there are 'photographers' on every street corner. Maybe it is because other professionals see me as a hobbyist, who is stepping on toes, rather than a newbie who is honestly doing everything I can. Who knows? Not me, that's for sure. What can I say...I tried?
Granted, I will not give up. That is not what I do. I am a fighter, in all situations. To take a quote from a great Incubus song; "If not now, when...?"
That tends to be my theory as of late. A sort of motto, one could say.
Perhaps all I need is a good, strong dose of Inspiration. With a side of confidence, and shot of patience. I am doing my best to be all of these, but let's just say that it's not always that easy. Oh what I would give for a real-life mentor! Let me rephrase - a FREE real-life mentor! People sure know what to charge just to speak! I just want to sit down and pick a photographers brain. On business, creativity, ideas, things like that.
But all is good! I will keep on truckin'.
