Early in photography school my teacher got very upset over one of my friends that hadn´t done his homework. He said he didn´t have the inspiration. My teacher, Calldick Lundblad, said “how are you going to get food on the table and be paying the rent if you will always sit around waiting for inspiration”? Good question!
In the blogging world there are so many people sharing ideas and inspiration to get a better life. I think that is marvellous. The world really has a chance to be a better place with all the improvement. But it all comes down to us. We have to have a will, inspiration and we have to work to get there, to do it. It all start with yourself. You are in the center of your own life and it is you who is in charge. Not so easy all the time, really. Don´t think I am not aware of that.
What my photography teacher told me, and I live by it still, is to get into it. To start. Along the way you will build the inspiration, together with the transpiration. For every step that is getting you closer to the goal it feels better and better. The inspiration builds up. It is hard work but rewarding. Perhaps you can inspire others. The best of it all.
