If the stars are close

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.
– Michelangelo
As if the stars were close.
I spend time and time planing and thinking:
how could I move forward?
what would be my next step?
and than someone comes along and just did it
sometimes everything is easier than I think

what are we gonna do now!?!

So what re we gonna do now?!
I used to say this in a moment when I was hopeless and didn’t know what to do. I said this also to put my partner down.
I didn’t do it on purpose. It came out unconsciously. As I became aware of it I realised what a bad habit it was.
I don’t want to do this anymore! It isn’t always easy to stay positive in difficult situations. And I still don’t know what to say instead. But I don’t want to hurt anyone out of my insecurity.
And I want to be able to move on.

I see darkness

photography literally means painting with light, which is misleading somehow. It’s the shadows and darkness that gives a picture substance and depth. To see the darkness, to connect with it and make art out of it gives me real joy. So I explore the shadows within me. The more I acknowledge my dark side the more whole I am as a person. It’s my shadows gives me substance That’s the upside of my dark side model @777maria__ 🙏
