Lost in books, castles, and imaginary worlds, I dreamed about being a writer when I grew up.
(Actually, I dreamed about being a thousand things, but we are getting out of line. So let’s go on.)
No, no, no. After a while, I got freaking bored with all the technical stuff and lack of use of my creative side.
So I studied documentary photography in 2013. And I created my first photo book in a uni course about photography aesthetics that, ahem, had nothing to do with designing books. 🤣🤣🤣 (I’m still trying to figure out that one.)
(Pictured above: “Efímera Eternidad”, my photo book.)
You know, that time when you realize that it’s totally OK to follow more than one path, or career, or whatever it is that you want to do in life.
WARNING: By doing that, you may be a rebel in the eyes of some of your professors, and they may subtract points from your beautiful all-night-up work.
(Disclaimer: Any resemblance to actual persons or events is entirely coincidental. 😉🤣😅)
Yep, there’s no typo there. 👆🏻👆🏽👆🏿
I realized that I didn’t need to do things perfectly to show up and share my work with the world. If I waited until it was perfect, I’d never share anything, and that would be a disservice both to myself and to whoever needs what I have to give in this world.
You don’t have to be perfect.
The beauty is in your imperfection. It’s what makes you human. It’s what helps you understand other people and connect with them.
So don’t hide your imperfection, beautiful. Because it may help others realize that they have something to give in this world too, and that the time for doing that is now.
With all my love,
