And there are days I have no idea what I'm doing. Today is one of those days. I am working towards building my photography business and there are things you just cannot prepare for in life. I have read article, after article, after blog, after YouTube video, after empty Google search looking for answers and there just is no perfect recipe. There's no "one-size-fits-all" for best editing tool, or website builder, or magical cocktail for building a social media following.
So what do I do? Persevere. Try. Give it a good ol' college try. Because truly, the only thing worse than failure is never making the attempt. I don't mind failure, I mind ending the day with the sense I didn't give my best effort.
I have spent hours today looking for the perfect quote about failure, and I was expecting it to be along the lines of "you'll feel better in the end" or something else that's wildly motivational. Turns out, I think I'm driven by spite.
Truman Capote said:
"Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor"
So, be on the lookout for me, I am here and I am committed.
