To say I lost my sense of self last year would be an understatement.
To be fair, I cannot blame it on having a child though that life change was incredible to say the least.
Moving to Texas really threw me for a loop. I didn't anticipate a period almost void of inspiration.
I never realized how much friends, family and place influenced my photography.Here in Austin, I didn't push myself to find new inspiration-I made excuses instead. I wallowed in my sadness-longed for rain and familiar faces. Once pregnant I decided to give myself "a break" and let inspiration come on its own.
I was taking the easy way out of things.
I'm ready to search for that magic again, to push myself-to be in new situations and find that beauty.
If you have a bit of time, listen to this podcast. Elizabeth Gilbert talks about inspiration-and I found it just the kick in the pants I needed. Maybe you'll enjoy it, too.
