Musings

I’ve stopped doing things that I know make me lonely or sad. Mostly.


“Be brave enough to be bad at it.”

I read that recently and it’s continued to seep into my mind.

With photography, I’m brave enough to be bad at it, to put this project into the world, and these journal posts. With web design and development I’m brave. With my tiny business adventure and marketing ideas I’m brave. My creativity is brave.

With asking a girl out, I am not brave, and I’m afraid to be bad at it. Last night I saw a man ask a woman out and was amazed at his ability to do so. I’m not brave enough to say hello to a stranger. I’m not brave enough to say hello to a mere acquaintance much of the time. I’m not brave enough to look at other photographers work. I’m not brave enough to talk about financial struggle. I’m not brave enough to swim. I’m not brave enough to tell her all the ways I feel.

As I dissected all these my whole life folded out, wheee things thrives and where things slowed were all a matter of being brave or not being brave.

How do I learn to be brave in areas I’ve never been?
