"If you have to ask yourself if you're playing it safe, you're probably playing it safe". I'm fortunate enough to have made friends with many creatives across the country and obviously here in the DMV, so often times, we tend to get into these deep conversations about passions & purpose which has had me questioning my own. What am I meant to be doing and am I doing it to the fullest of my ability? And to be honest, I'm not sure. The truth is that we can always do more, we can always go harder, we can always be better at whatever it is that we do. Safety is a comfort zone and the goal should be to challenge that comfort zone consistently. So asking that question of yourself is the best start to breaking free. In order to fix a problem, you must first acknowledge it and the same applies to stretching your boundaries. If we are not conscious of the walls that limit us, we will never be able to move past them.
The other beautiful thing about meeting and befriending creatives from across the world is that each holds a different perspective of the world we inhabit. Meeting Briana (@brijaywilliams) & Kateleen (@heyimkateleen) was a much needed breath of fresh air. Shooting them as they were stretching physically, helped all 3 of us stretch ourselves mentally. We all provided something to one another to help us grow in those moments, especially watching these 2 friends boundlessly express their love for each other and each other's energy. I can truly say that this experience was one of my favorites of late. And what took place later that night, was nothing short of mind altering. Stay tuned for the follow-up shoot with Bri as we stretched each other's boundaries a step further.
