Today I’m grateful for pushing myself to get out of my comfort zone. I’d been planning on doing a self portrait while we were away. I had planned to wake up really early so that I could get out there before anyone was awake to see me looking silly in a tutu. I didn’t wake up early. It was too difficult. Then I started with the reasons why I couldn’t do the shoot. I was making excuse after excuse in my head, until I realised how pissed off with myself I’d be if I didn’t at least try.
I didn’t know what I was going to do, I just got dressed, found a spot and started shooting. I gave myself permission to look silly and to get it wrong. As long as I did it.
And now I’m so thankful that I did. I spent the afternoon editing my image and am pretty happy with how it turned out. I’ll be posting it later this week. It’s great to make a start and get out of your comfort zone.
