Don't ever let fear / self-doubt / what-ifs hold you back from doing something you believe in.
Countless times I've watched opportunities pass by because I was too afraid to leap. I've dreamed big and then not acted for fear of failure or being criticized.
Today I was reminiscing, thinking about how far I've come. I was busy editing family sessions which are one of my favourite shoots to do, and I remembered how when I first started photography I was albeit mortally afraid of doing family sessions! I can't remember the date I officially started my business, sometime in 2012 - anyway four years later here I am in a very happy place; proud of where I've come from and excited to continue growing in the future.
Today as I reflected on how far I've come I realised that somewhere along the way I decided to stop being held back by fear and self-doubt. Somehow I got to here, I'm doing what I believe in, I'm having a go and enjoying the ride because if you're not chasing dreams, having a go and grabbing opportunities when they jump up and slap you in the face then you're just being a spectator on the sidelines of life.
