Sometimes I forget that being a wedding photographer is in actuality, a lot of work. I don’t feel like I work hard because it’s my life; it’s what I am passionate about. Don’t get me wrong – there are times it feels like work, but most of the time it feels like passion!
Anything that feels like constant work is going to in the long run, make me miserable. Not only when it comes to career, but friendships and relationships.
I’ve been in relationships where it felt like a lot of work (communicating, compromising, making sure everything was ok), and also ones that flowed so effortlessly that I never needed to stop, think, or “talk about it.” In retrospect, in the easy relationships, I was still communicating and compromising, but the difference was that it didn’t feel like it.
If it constantly feels like work, it’s like running a marathon – eventually I’m going to get tired. I choose to do things in life that overall feel easy. That makes me happy.
