Day 3: Try(ing).

I hope this makes some sense to who ever reads it. I didn’t edit any of it – just typed as I thought.

For a such a small word it certainly has a bit of weight to it.

Anyone who has every wanted something, or worked towards something knows first hand just how much it takes to simply try.

To take that very first step into the new and unknown. Or to start all over on a goal that you have attempted to complete before.

It can be daunting, scary, and nerve racking.

It can be exciting, thrilling, and beyond amazing.

The way you chose to think about it is what it comes down to.

There have been songs, speeches, and quotes throughout the years about trying.

Everyday that I am fortunate enough to wake up and see a new day, my first objective (well, after brushing my teeth and washing my face..) is to try.

I try to make today better than the one before, try to get my side hustle just a little bit further off the ground, try not to let being a introvert get in your way, try to be kinder to those who are not kind to me, try to take care of myself physically and emotionally, try, try, try!

Why? Why do I try so much if it is so damn hard?

That’s simple: It beats the alternative.

Giving in and giving up on my dreams is the only thing I am afraid of at this point in my life.

I have seen folks who did that, and it is one of the most heartbreaking things that I have ever witnessed.

Literally – everything about them is shattered.

The spirit and light that was once in their eyes has cracked out.

The way that they interact with others who still are trying to pursue their passions (or peace be still – love these ornery souls) is borderline bullying. Because for some reason, someone or something happened to them that damaged their prospective, their hopes and their dreams so horribly that they can not stand to see anyone else’s.

In turn, they do their best to be always be at their worst around you – to the point where you learn to just stay away from them. In order to protect yourself…

If you want or need something in this world, you must be will to at least try.

Please don’t be (or remain) one of those people who ‘rest on pretty’ or remain a ‘fuckboy’  – go out there and try.

Thanks.

      1. I have the same problem. Actually Self-Doubt could be my middle names…about my photography, about writing, whatever it is. But I am learning you just have to go for it. I’m sure as a singer you have to do that sometimes. Just let that note fly. It may not always work, but it will work some of the time and it is better than taking the safe road. You keep posting, I’ll keep reading 🙂

      2. Oh, good ole Self Doubt! LOL
        I know all about that. You are right, we all have those moments. I’ve finally started to learn that the moments where I made a mistake are better than the moments where I didn’t try. So you keep capturing amazing photos, and I’ll keep looking in awe and commenting 🙂 Thank you so much for the encouragement and new found prospective!

      3. It happens to me all the time with photography.I may take a bunch of photos one day, put them up on Facebook and there is usually one that I don’t like for various reasons. But I say oh well, I’ll put it up anyway because I like the other photos better. Guess which one I invariably get the most comments on is? Yep, the one I have a problem with lol. So yes, I definitely learn from those mistakes. The encouragement is mutual and speaking of that, you should join Cafe Blog, a FB group that came out of that Blogging 201 class. Just look it up under that name. It’s another way for more people to see your posts
