I am in a sad, blue funk today.
I have brilliant, exciting ideas for my blog and there are so many things I want to share with you, I don’t know where to begin!!!!
What am I doing instead of furiously typing away, learning formatting, finding widgets and getting networked? I’m letting that little voice in my head say “You’re no good” and “Look at all these people with better blogs! Why do you even bother?” and “Their pictures are awesome! Too bad your little iPhone can’t match that!” It’s very discouraging! Why do we feel the need to compare ourselves with others?
Well, forget that! Little voice, you are FIRED!! Comparisons are odious!
It’s a little over a month away from my one year blogiversary! I’m making changes and following my heart. After all, life isn’t perfect and neither is my kitchen. I guess if you read the title of this blog, you’d know that already. :-)
Maybe I can’t dedicate the same amount of time as other bloggers. That’s ok! Our lives are different. I can’t feel guilty about that! (Ohhhh but I do! Darn little voice, I said you are FIRED! Go away!!)
Perhaps I’m not the most tech-savvy person on the planet, but that’s ok too. I can learn.
Sure, I don’t have a fancy camera or a light box or a gazillion props to go with my food photos. My family will tell you that I’m seriously working on the prop thing though! LOL!
Do you know what else I have? I have ME! I’m not perfect, but some days I’m pretty awesome. I have an iPhone I LOVE and it takes damn good pictures. Over the last year I have learned SO MUCH and been SO BLESSED to meet some incredible people! I’ve had adventures in cooking classes, demos, events and auditions! My kitchen skills, while not perfect, can only get better!
So pardon me while I kick this evil little voice to the curb and tell him to SHUT UP! I’m heading out to fix my glasses, get some cabbage for a recipe I want to share with you next week and ENJOY my day!
What about you? What comparisons do you struggle with?
Till next time foodie friends!
