Be Brave

by Rachel The Introvert January. 10, 2019 465 views

I'm a raging insomniac. I often find myself up at odd hours of the night into the morning. Sometimes I get out my art supplies and doodle. Other times I drink a glass of Pinot Blanc and stare into the darkness. Sometimes I find myself doing both. I was up late last night (or should I say morning) playing with my watercolor paints and markers. I managed to make a readable scribble of the words I hold on a lot these days. Be Brave.

I enjoy having a place to compile both my thoughts and images to go along with them. This is a small set that I would be hesitant to share anywhere else. Largely because I am embarrassed of my failures at artistic handwriting ha! But I enjoyed photographing it and I rather like how the images came out as a whole...

I had some fun with my Lensbaby... need to get her out more often.

Some moody black and white to fit the mood...

Be brave...

Be brave enough for what?

Brave enough to find myself.

Be brave enough to stand on my own.

Be brave enough to gather strength from myself.

Be brave enough to believe in myself.

Be brave enough to go through the obstacle and not around it.

Be brave enough to accept myself for me and no one else.

Be brave enough to stay.

Be brave enough to fly.

Be brave.

....

Thank you for reading my ramblings...

It is so difficult to decide as to what are you better at? With Your camera or with your words......Best wishes

Be brave enough to fail (although I have no idea whether your artistic handwriting is superb or worthless) smile  Failure is a necessary step in learning. Anyway, you're photography is great smile
