Real Mind Control: Trying The 21 Day No Complaint Experiment Endorsed by Tim Ferriss

I have wanted to do this challenge for the longest time but I’ve been putting it off for some unknown reason. I knew it would be hard, but there are zero negative side effects from doing this challenge, so I guess I just wanted to  protect my right to complain, hence why I was shying away from this challenge.

That’s not the best way to go.

I can at times slip into a very negative mindset and I don’t know how to snap out of it. I’m aware it’s happening, but I just seem to be stuck in a cycle.

My Travel Photography Journey - Sh*t to Boss

I'm not one to usually toot my horn and say I'm amazing at any certain skill.
I'm not particularly great at anything. I'm pretty good at a lot of things, but not great.

Photography is a thing that has been in my life for years, but more because 3 of my boyfriends were interested in photography before it even crossed my mind to pick up a camera. I always wondered why on earth they would bother. I didn't really understand the point, but more so, I never really thought I could be good at it.

And even 3 years after I picked up a camera, I actually thought I was completely rubbish...until very, very recently. I caught myself looking at my portfolio in admiration. Beautiful images sharing a story, curated beautifully and images complimenting each other.
