I think I'm sinking into a little depression...

I dunno.. of late, I have trouble sleeping and my mind just can't stop thinking about what to do with myself.

I have, once again, come to a stagnant point about my life, my work and about what I want to do. There's so much I want to do but I just can't find the avenues to do so.. I want to go regional or do something that's breaking away from the mundane of local photography but I just can't seem to break out of the vicious cycle.

Somewhat I have lost focus of what do I want to achieve at the end. I find myself spirtually weighted down by my own inabilities to reach out and grab the chances to further improve myself...

I feel like sh*t

I hear this from all professional photographers from time to time. And I say exactly the same things as well.

The situation for pros in Singapore is bad. What I have to say to you is that the conventional wisdom in Singapore is not going to get you any further than the best that there are here. And is that where you are aiming?

If you feel that you have grown as much as you can in your current market doing what you do, then you got to take stock. The only logical thing is to have the balls to take a chance. To make the leap to something bigger takes time and money. I know its frightening, but to stay still is to dig your own grave. No pain, no gain.
