I have been thinking long and hard about how I can intentionally make this year better than last year.
Why not start with resolutions?
I’ve made tons of them in the past… hmmmm I wonder if any of them were ever accomplished…
As I kept pondering and contemplating what I could do, I realized the problem right then and there.
I can’t. I try. I pretend I can.
I like to make you all think I can… in photography, as a mom, as a wife, as a teacher.
It’s no fun when everyone knows you aren’t perfect.
I’m sure you KNOW but I sure am not gonna SHOW you on purpose!
For example, this whole Before and After business has been bugging me for days.
I WANT to show you a before and after but I’m scared!
Do you know why?
It’s SO silly.
I’m scared that you’ll see the real picture and then think I’m really not that great of a photographer.
I can just fix up any old picture in photoshop and voilà!
I know it’s not that simple but I want everyone to think that beautiful picture just came that way. Because I’m that
awesome. But, alas, I am not. And I figured this year, I’m just going to be me.
This way you get to see REAL and when I succeed, God gets the glory because you will have seen the messy.
I’m not going to hide something because I’m afraid of what people think.
People pleasing is out. Vulnerable is in.
What are you changing this year?
