Recently, I really love watching others photography from the sunset, nature, flowers, and everything that was beautiful in my sight and love all their works. And I questioned myself "Can you do this one? Can you capture beautiful things?" And I was like "I don't know" and the inner me said, "Why not give it a try, you can do all things if you like and persevere just like cookings". So now maybe you're thinking I am stupid talking to myself 😂 Well, I really talk to myself sometimes, I mean my mind talks to itself maybe lol, I don't let others see me talking myself or else I'll be accused as crazy. My thoughts mentioned cookings because I really don't know how to cook, but just by following the recipes or guides or certain videos, I can cook dishes good even it was my first time. So now my mind challenges me again.
Today, I tried to give shot on capturing the sun and capturing flowers. I thought I am really not good at taking pictures or angles but receiving some support from here made me realize, I can do it. Although it wasn't that good to some of you may be, it's okay for me because it is my first time. You can see my works here if you like,
I am not making a fuzz about what I did but what I want to emphasize is that whenever you want to try something, go for it! There's no harm in trying.
Sometimes I really love to challenge myself to bring out the best in me. Often times I belittle myself, but when the inner me challenges me it always shows that I can do it or I can do more.
Sometimes we just have to believe in ourselves that we can do anything, that anything is possible as long as you persevere. I am not just talking about the photograph but in general. Whatever comes to your mind that sometimes made you doubt yourself, do it. Prove that you can do better, prove to yourself that you are not just made to be average but made to be excellent. It's not bad to challenge yourself, it's a good way to brings out the best in you.
Do not compare yourself to anyone, do not compare your works either because we are far different from each other. We have different strengths, you just have to discover yours. Don't ever say, he is better than me, he writes better than me, no you just didn't know where is your spot. Find your strength so you can cultivate it, do not envy others instead make them your inspiration. Inspiration to do more and do better. All of the famous writer or even famous persons in the world had a long way before they reach their spot. Being known is a long process you have to be unknown first and do all the things that will untie the "un" and turns it to "known" if you wish to be a known writer or a known person. It's all up to us, up to us what path we choose.
