Sister Wei Si's broken thoughts: the courage to change
"Your careers and lifestyles have taken a big turn. Very few friends have made such a big change. It's really a legend!"
Two days ago, when Sister Wei Si heard what her seniors said, she realized that ten years had passed in a flash, and her memory was instantly brought back to the scene when she returned to school and took photography class...
Teacher Andrea asked everyone a question in class that day: "If you think you are an artist, please raise your hand!" Some students in the class did not hesitate, while others raised their hands after thinking about it. Didn't lift it up! Then the teacher looked at everyone: "If you think you are an artist, you are an artist!" So straight to the point, concise and to the point. If you think you are an artist, you will think and create like an artist; if you think you are an artist, the opinions provided by others will be converted into experience and nutrition; no one can tell you when you can become Artist, you don't need the affirmation of others to become an artist, because art is in life, everyone can be an artist!
After this passage came to an end, the teacher asked everyone again: "If you think you are an artist, please raise your hand."
My sister forgot whether she had the courage to raise her hand later, but this passage had a great impact on her, so she always remembered it. Originally I thought that art was an unattainable and unattainable thing, but I didn’t expect the teacher to say a few words, like a light in the distance, illuminating a direction to move forward...
Coincidentally, when my sister was chatting with the same teacher after class, Andrea suddenly changed the subject and asked her: "Do you want to be a professional photographer?" My sister replied intuitively: "But I'm already 40 years old... The teacher just shrugged: "So? I only became a professional photographer when I was 45 years old!"
Although there was no purpose in taking the photography class at the beginning, the teacher's response hit my sister's heart again... Yes! In fact, there is no need to set limits in life. It turns out that you have been bound by yourself without knowing it. I was taught from an early age to know the limits of my abilities. In fact, it’s important not to belittle yourself. Life is full of possibilities. Don’t say it’s impossible before you explore and try seriously! If you can let go of the established secular life and live without being cautious, even if you start to engage in the things you love at the age of 40, then if you take 20 years seriously, you will only be 60 years old!
In this way, during the three years at school, I was inspired and encouraged by the teachers, which invisibly gave my sister the courage to change...I didn’t expect that I only wanted to learn photography, but in the end I packed the life wisdom of the school teachers together Take it away, this is really unexpected for my sister. When my sister got the photography course certificate, she also hoped that she would continue to improve and continue to move forward to her next dream... In 2017, she was lucky to become a resident artist of Qinmei Cultural and Creative, and realized her wish to hold a photography solo exhibition. Since 2018, she has rolled up her sleeves Began to promote new photographic output media...
The elder sister, who had recovered from the past, replied playfully to the senior: "Yes, we have really changed from a white-collar class to a solid blue-collar worker, a factory worker!"
Dear friends, let us embrace the courage to change, jump out of the comfort zone, go forward bravely, and pursue our dreams. Maybe the journey is far away and the process is hard. Don’t forget to slow down at the turning point of life and appreciate the aftertaste carefully. It turns out that the scenery along the way is so profound and beautiful!
Focus on doing one thing well
Go forward and pursue your dreams
