PERSONAL: Pep Talk Tuesday | Santa Barbara, CA | Alexis June Weddings | NYC + Destination Wedding Photographer

I’ve had the privilege of traveling to a few AMAZING places this year. Santa Barbara being one of them and I can’t help thinking about the moment I took this image and how I was feeling. But, not about how the sand felt between my toes or the fresh ocean breeze blowing in my face, but how I REALLY felt.

I moved to NYC not even two years ago and it has been one wild and crazy ride. I still have those ‘OMG I LIVE IN NEW YORK FREAKING CITY’ moments. Yes, STILL. I don’t know if those will ever stop or end, but I do know that although things get to be overwhelming or discouraging – I am in charge of my own destiny. I am the only one responsible for my life and loves I am far from perfect. Sometimes it’s not pretty, but it is what it is. You live and learn and move forward.

Okay now I’m rambling…

I was talking to one of friends about staying inspired and working on more personal projects. I’ve recently started to shoot film again which I’m incredibly passionate about. There’s just something about connecting with the person in front of the camera without the added distraction. I’ll post on that later, but the point of Pep Talk Tuesday is to share a little inspiration. A little something, something I stumbled upon today that I just HAD TO SHARE!

If you know or have seen my posts on Instagram or Facebook you know I’m a quote lover. During the day when I’m at home editing I listen to random things on YouTube – I came across this one from Lara Jade. She’s amazing, right? Here a few points from her talk, all very true, all great things to remember and something we can not forget, not even for one day.

– LIVE WITH GRATITUDE
– SELF WORTH
– LOOK DEEPER
– LET GO OF FEAR
– DON’T COMPETE
– BE OPEN TO COLLABORATION

It’s not even four minutes long – go, listen, watch and be INSPIRED.
