Sometimes we create our own barriers to reaching our expectations. The World Wide Photo Walk in Kansas City was one of those lessons. I was trying too hard to not take the “obvious” pictures and in doing so I think I missed out on some of the…..well……obvious pictures. But I would do it again in a heartbeat, and I would have this valuable lesson tucked into my pocket. I think I came away with a few gems, but all of my pictures seemed to have the same colorless blah to them. A couple of days after this experience though I came across this helpful video on Robyn’s blog, and it helped to put things in perspective. Maybe some of you will find a lesson in it as well. Bottom line – don’t give up – keep trying, practicing, improving and learning!
p.s. For those of you wondering, my mental health is stable for the moment, but I find I’m not all that good at kicking things to the curb. More d.a.m.n. life lessons learned – rats!!
