Recently a friend of mine who work in the same area as me share a story about herself, how she thinks that she is not good enough in her job. Have you ever thought of it? Being sucks in your job, or the worst, the things that you love. As a designer it scares me a lot. Sometimes the thought crosses my mind… "If i suck in the thing that i love the most then what’s left in me? I will have nothing…" :(
As a person who loves and appreciates arts & design, not being able to pull out my creativity is my worst nightmare. Some people will call you suck but others may not. But again, I am working in the area where the value of a design is subjective. People have different thought and opinion about art & design. It’s just the matter of taste.
So, every time i stumble upon a rock i say to myself, "Will you let people thought and criticism define who you are and give you the label? Never put yourself down. When you have the passion, nothing can stop you until you think the other way around. There is always time to learn and there is always time for experiences,"
In the end my friend told me that she always loves to cook and she has a dream to open her own restaurant. The next thing i know she went back to her parents and help them with their small sandwich shop. She has to go to the market, clean and cut chickens, the place is not so big and the money she earns is not as big as designer salary but she is happy with it.
It’s just a small thing that we can do to enjoy our life, by loving everything that we do. :)
