So this evening I felt like writing a post about the lack of integrity and/or the sacrifices we sometimes have to make towards reaching our dreams in order to actually and eventually reach them.
Do you know the feeling of:
• saying yes to ugly work (maybe you work as a photographer and have to say yes to brands you find boring or ugly, in order to pay your bills so you also can get to shoot editorials or whatever you find beautiful and inspiring. Or even important)
• or the feeling of having to dress/speak/perform a certain way in order to reach respect from clients/someone who you admire, until you have proven enough to not having to do all of those things anymore? Because your results speaks for themselves, so now you no longer need to fear if you’re too unexperienced, young or even if your gender might be ‘in the way’ in order for you to reach the job/position/dream you long for?
I think this is perfectly normal and a process most of us have to go through, before reaching the level we wish to reach.
During the years I have even heard people putting words such as ‘prostitution’ on it because it can feel like ‘selling your body/soul/talent’ for money, which might be against your values and/or integrity.
But I guess my point with this post is: everything has a beginning. And you can’t have it all. Sometimes you have do some irritating/boring or so on things, in order to get to a place where you no longer need to do them. But of cause: don’t go too far and take good care of yourself along the way.
But when that is said then: see if you can gain some acceptance on the fact, that most of us sometimes have to do some not so super cool things in order to reach a point where we’ll only get to do the super cool things. xx J
P.S. I’ve had five interruptions during writing this post, I hope they won’t be reflected to much in it.
