Not everything has to be a rad picture for the gram... Was trying to find a cool pic and write a cool caption, but wound up reflecting on the whirlwind that has been the last two months. —
One thing I’m learning in doing creative work is this... sometimes you just have to trust the idea. It’s definitely easy to stress about all the details, especially when you know people are going to critique the final product. But, if you don’t act on your “crazy idea” ... well, then that’s all it ever will be... an idea and never a product. Ideas are cool, but when you act on them, it gives them the opportunity to become something super cool...and honestly, it helps you experience life along the way. —
Example from my life. Engineering wasn’t a great fit for me. I went to school for it, had a “career” in it... but had a crazy idea that I could do something I actually loved for a living. Flash forward through three years of figuring that out, and now I feel like I finally found something I love doing everyday. Is it work... absolutely! But is it worth it... 💯 yes.
