I’ve got another gem to drop on you all…. I’m human! On most days I’m upbeat, positive, and smiling. Well, yesterday had me off my game. I allowed others to affect me. My energy was as murky as the weather. I was disappointed that I poured hours into a project and it was underappreciated. I tried to give myself a mini pep talk, but my mind was swirling! (Being a thinker is a gift and a curse). Then, I got dressed and prepped for some pictures. Fake it ’til you make it, right?! Wrong! A couple shots in I was politely told, “your face is all wrong!” *Gasp* Talk about words that touch your soul. Then, I was shown some of the pics and as much as I wanted to deny the “rightness” I couldn’t. This in turn made me more upset. Counterproductive right? lol. Misery: 1 Angell:0. After taking a moment to really be still and try to settle my brain we managed to squeak out some good images. Thank heavens for a great photographer with patience! While frustrated, I learned from my mishaps. I CANNOT let others shake my confidence. (As twisted as it is, some are waiting, even hoping I fail! *insert shocked emoji face*). I have to respect that things will happen in due time. I have to marinate in my abilities and realize it may take others a while to appreciate my style because I’m not a “skin is in” kind of lady. I’m a writer with things to say. I require some effort in an era of instant gratification. I’m also human and I’m allowed to be blue every once in a while and so are you……
