Anyway, lately I've been thinking about personal limits and limitations and how much they can affect business. I've seen a lot of photographers post very personal statuses on their business pages and it just reaffirms that pretty much everyone everywhere is going through something. I'm going through many somethings, as I'm sure you are as well. They certainly do have an effect on our daily choices, don't they? I think it's important to know your limits, and not set completely unreasonable goals for yourself, but what if you are experiencing great limitations? A close friend of mine is going through something similar. She's finally gotten to the place where she's had to tell people "no". In my mind, it's been a long time coming. In hers, well, that's a different story. While I don't have nearly close to the personal demands that she does, I have more than enough that I put on myself. I, probably like you, have certain ideas about where I should be and what I should be doing in life. We've all had these "standards" shoved down our throats since birth. They include school, friendships, higher education, job, marital status, etc. And they can be overwhelming. Everyone tells you that you don't have to listen to society, your family, and anyone else putting pressure on you, and though they're right, we all know it's easier said than done.
The older I've grown, thankfully, I have grown to accept my personal limitations and limits. At times it's been painful to do so. No one who has ever made personal growth will tell you it's easy. This blog isn't leading anywhere regarding my photography. I just wanted to talk about something I think many people in their 30s are going through. I do hope this blog has found you well. See you next month!
