The photography theme for week 38 was ‘Lost’. This was definitely a theme that I could identify with. In life, I question what I’m doing and where I’m going quite often.
Always stuck between this is exactly where I should be and I should be over ‘there’ doing more. Wherever “there” is. I over-think the fuck out of everything, EVERYTHING!
When I’m lost it’s usually because I’m trapped in my own little mind, searching for some new direction to go in, or waiting for my ship to come in, as if one day I’ll wake up and suddenly be great at everything I feel quite mediocre at. When in reality I’m not perfect, no one is!
What I do know is that I fail quite often, as a mother, wife, photographer, crafter. Yet… my kids are happy, my husband is satisfied (wink, wink), my photography improves constantly, and my crafts sell, so that has to tell me something, right? Yeah, yeah it does… I’m pretty fucking awesome exactly where I am. Time to get out of my own head and enjoy the beach I’m on! I was trying to get all metaphoric there, but that sounds kind of cheesy, you know what the fuck I mean though. :p
So glad I had this little pep talk with myself. I needed that.
“Type hard, like you mean it!”
