What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

I am not sure if it is me or the camera or whatnot, but it has gotten ridiculously harder to take a decent picture of myself as the years have passed. I used to take a lot of selfs when I was a bit younger, but something looks a bit off lately… I can not tell if it is the facial structure itself that has changed (at such a slow pace that I have failed to notice), or if it is simply lack of practice or interest. Taking decent pictures of myself when I was younger did wonders to my self-confidence, but I just can not seem to get much out of it anymore.

In other news, it is the time of year where everyone is rethinking their future, what to do with their lives, and I am no exception. Listening to Serge Gainsbourg and drinking cheap red wine, I think I have finally figured out what I want. Maybe it is true as they say – there are only two problems in life, not knowing how to get what you want, or not knowing what you want. The latter has by far always been my biggest obstacle.

    Bah, I’m always so envious of those who seem to figure out a path for themselves. I’m at a crossroad, having to choose between two academic disciplines – and it kills me. Had I not been the kind of person that tends to (severely) over-analyze everything, I have a hunch that it would’ve been a bit easier. But no no, haha. I think I know what I want though. I’m just not too sure it’s the best.
    But, I’m glad you’ve found .something. out – it sounds great to be somewhat sure of where to go in life :)

      I saw that on your blog! I think a very common problem a lot of people face these days is the annoying feeling of “when you choose ONE thing – you close the door of 99 other things” … And therefore we feel deprived in a strange way? Not sure if that is the case with you, but I feel like that from time to time. I have to realize that actually standing on the sideline and not choosing at all deprives me of all 100 options ;)

      I am not sure I have figured out a path at all, but I had a few moments of clarity. That is good enough for now :D

    So, what is it that you want?
    Would you share it with you readers?
    We are good at listening, you know… :)

      I am so bad at sharing sometimes, other times I think I share to much. I will write about it soon, I just don’t want to jinx it right now :) Thank you staying put and listening ;)

    Men du klarte jo å ta noen veldig pene bilder uansett hvordan du føler deg. :)

      Takk skal du ha for det – men det er akkurat som om det er noe som har forandret seg veldig i ansiktet, men jeg klarer ikke finne ut av hva det er…

    I think these photos of you are gorgeous. <3
    But I know what you mean about your face changing, I have noticed it in myself too. I see it as a good thing though, because I feel like I am seeing more character in it as time passes. These portraits of you feel more expressive than many that you've taken before I think. :)

    • Sushi Bird says:

      I have to agree with you about the character part, but I can not shake the feeling of turning quirkier in the face for each month that goes by. I still can not decide if it is because I am looking for different qualities in the self-portraits now or if it simply my face that has changed for the worse.

    These photos of you are excellent. You’re as beautiful as ever.

      Thank you! These are from a year or two ago, I haven’t felt like taking that many pictures of my face lately.
