Comparing Yourself To Other Creatives

Recently, I caught myself doing something I am not particularly proud of: comparing myself to another person in the field of videography and filmmaking. Granted, I have enough self-awareness not to put myself alongside, say, Peter McKinnon, who has been at this game for years but I still feel I was unfair to myself nonetheless. Let me explain.

A Gift To Myself For My 29th Birthday

Yesterday the first day of the last year of my twenties. Even though I have done a birthday photoshoot and filmed the Q & A (click HERE to watch that), it still hasn’t fully sunk in.

What I'm Reading: The Four Agreements

The first time I read “The Four Agreements” was a few years ago.

I’m discovering as of late that there are occasions which you go searching for answers and are not where you should be to receive them. Think of it like when you tell someone to meet you at a certain spot and when they don’t show up in the exact moment you expected them to, you wander off and then they show up at the designated spot and they go off looking for you and it continues. Granted, these instances are fewer now that we have cell phones but for those that recall the home phone struggle, you know. Anyway, I’m sure the reason Don Miguel Ruiz’s book didn’t resonate as much with me before as it has in a second reading and heaving highlighting. Seriously, the number of Post-Its in this thing.

If you haven’t read that post you can click HERE to check that out before reading on. I decided that I would share more with you about that particular tattoo and the other ones I have. Let’s get to it! In chronological order. Did you really think it was going to go any other way with me?
