Another example of opportunity. Always be open to meeting new people and starting new adventures. Surrounding yourself with people who make yourself grow is a great way to make that growing process shoot faster. I've seen myself grow and progress over the past year, when last May I didn't even own a camera. Be open to new paths and let them change you if it's for the good.
Opportunity can come at you all of a sudden, and my rule is to go after it. An opportunity can present itself and make a huge impact on your life if reached for. But you have to make the effort to reach for it yourself; fate will only take you so far and then it's up to you. Last night I was able to have a beautiful photoshoot with many new friends, and the whole opportunity created itself only a few hours prior. We all could have been lazy and stayed home, but we reached for the opportunity and had a great experience. Here's a photo from last night of my new friend Jonny. Go book him as a model 📸
What do you do to unwind? Do you spend time in nature? Drink wine? Nothing at all? ...
Honestly, taking time to rejuvenate is so good for the soul not to mention, personal growth and success!
And I feel like it’s so easy to overlook. I am constantly on the run - so avoiding burnout is definitely a personal battle for me. So this weekend, I plan on some beach yoga & hopefully capturing few good sunset photos! I hope you all take some time to unwind this Memorial Day Weekend too! Because you Mos Def deserve it.
