Sometimes we take decisions which lead us towards a less comfortable situation, pushing our boundaries so that we can grow into e new version of ourselves. This often takes some kind of courage and, therefore, it’s not an easy thing to do. We like our good and bad habits because we know what to expect. But the nicest things happen when we thing outside the box.
In the past three years I’ve been learning about how to become a teacher, which at first felt pretty uncomfortable, in the same way I had some issues calling myself a photographer after twenty years of experience shooting in studio. But learning to become a better teacher might have made me a better version of myself, and perhaps a better photographer. I don’t know, but I’d like to think so. Anyway, it feels good to look back and realize that we are not in the same place we were not long ago, as a really good friend said to me.
