I came upon this blog by Amber Carleson talking about the true meaning of passion, and it hit me to the core. We feel the passion for what we make, BUT why?
Amber really goes into depth, so if you’re interested after reading my blog post, check out hers. I’ll give you the link below ;0)
Being a professional photographer takes a lot of passion, that’s for sure. You have ups and downs with creativity and then add the mix of a business; that’s the icing on the cake. But, unfortunately, sometimes the icing can be way too rich for the cake.
Let’s Make Sure Your Passion is Yummy
You see, when you bite into a cake and the icing doesn’t work, it’s time to try a new type of icing.
The cake is your photography; it’s the core of what you do. The icing is your photography business. It tops off the complete package of your passion.
Sometimes it’s painful and frustrating.
But when the cake and icing are so yummy and work together, you understand the value you’ve made for yourself and others… Now that is passion.
You will know and feel valued and will want more. Why not… it is the drive we have within each of us.
What’s Your Passion
Passion is Hard and Isn’t Fun all The Time
Yes, your passion will be hard at times and sometimes not fun. But I can confidently say that when you have that drive and work with others who have the same purpose and passion, it’s an exhilarating experience.
Because you’re not spinning your wheels. You’re accomplishing what you want to create with the help of others that understand what you’re going through.
You see, your 1000 words DOES make a difference to many on our planet.
So, touch, feel, and make your photography and take that passion to the next level by monetizing what you make; you see YOU are valued, and don’t ever forget that!
