In our competitive society, chasing the 5 ‘C’s, climbing the corporate ladder… We are so busy working and working… doing OTs, etc. It is hard to strike a work-life balance. There comes a point where you will be so tired… and you start to question yourself is this what I like to do? You realise that you are no longer happy. You ask yourself ‘what is happiness?’
Everyone has his or her passion and dreams… But not many are brave enough to fulfil their dreams. The question about Passion vs. Survival starts to sink in. Although you are unhappy with your job, and complain non-stop, you find it difficult to let go of your current stable pay or step into the unknown, out of your comfort zone. You start to question yourself a lot of ‘what ifs’ What if I fail? What if I can’t earn enough to pay my bills? What if I can’t maintain my current lifestyle? There are just so many ‘what ifs’… It’s so difficult to take the first step.
My stint in photography came after years of being a graphic designer. I felt inspired to go into wedding photography and bring happiness to people’s lives after I witnessed it for myself during the course of preparing my own wedding. Being around happy people, observing touching precious moments unfolding, scenes that make my heart melts or turn my eyes teary…and when I present these awesome memories pictures to them, the delightful expressions or smile on their faces just inject happiness to my heart.
I’m lucky to have my beloved hubby supporting me and encouragements from my mentors and friends. I decided to give it a try to pursue my passion! It’s either now or never…
During the course of preparing the setting up of Awesome Memories Photography, I truly enjoyed the whole process. Creating things from scratch, finding inspiration, brainstorming ideas, sketching, designing, etc, it all feels like having a baby. All the energy and efforts put on them are done with unconditional love. I found a mysterious kind of inner peace and happiness. The anticipation and excitement in launching Awesome Memories Photography is just like giving birth! Aww…my precious baby…..
3 new ‘C’s are born… Cherish, Capture, Connect.
Cherish your loved ones, Capture your awesome memories, Connect with your future generations. I find them so apt to be my brand essence and I’m loving it! =)
