Life captured beautifully.

Just be Yourself!

I was having such a great morning, I got my workout in, I finished a blogsite for my amazing husband and had my homemade latte… but then things went downhill.  This happens to me all the time lately, when it’s my slower season.  Although I have plenty of work I should be doing, I found myself stumbing around on facebook after logging in to post on Andy’s new construction page about the first blog post I created…

I began getting distracted by all the newest posting from friends and it’s like falling down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland… suddenly I’m looking at a couple of my competitor photographer’s websites and feeling rotten about myself and so I took a break to go eat lunch and it was then that I realized.  Hey!  I don’t need to do this.

I don’t want to compare myself to other people.  I really have no idea what the whole picture of their life is.  And I figured there were more people like me out there that feel this way.  So what did I do?  I Googled it!  🙂

I have this love/hate relationship with the internet.  I hate it for the fact that it causes me to get so far off track and creates these little vignettes of people’s lives that are so un-real… but I absolutely love it for the vast amount of information you can find.

So anyway, I Googled the phrase “Stop comparing yourself to others” and it came up with some seriously good articles, I couldn’t believe my luck!  So I clicked on the Wiki-how site and just thought the article posted there was awesome.  So awesome I needed to share it and my stinkin’ thinkin’ experience from today.  I hope this helped someone else out that might have been experiencing those same feelings.  I am now out of my funk after reading this article and doing what I can to help someone else, time to get back to work!!!
