The Baby is Screaming Again

Sometimes Often, I feel rather frazzled.
I highly value education, and furthering my knowledge about my craft. I love successful photographers who are willing to stand up and share their secrets and the things that have gotten them to where they are now, so that I don’t have to figure everything out on my own, the hard way. But sometimes even that education can leave me feeling scrambled and not enough. I should be writing engaging captions on my Instagram posts to garner more engagement: awesome, but there’s no possible way for me to think of anything creative or inspiring while the baby is screaming because she won’t nap–again. I should be posting three times a day to get maximum benefit from them: cool, what if I would have to literally post every single image from every single session, even the ones I’m not so proud of, in order to reach that? Only post the things that you’re proud of and want to shoot more of: see previous comment. You should be blogging regularly: great idea, that would be nice if my family could afford internet right now. You should buy all these education tools so you don’t have to learn the hard way: I WANT TO SO BAD, but I need them, so that I can get better, so that I can book more, so that I can afford to buy those tools. Wait, what? Yeah, that doesn’t quite work.

On days like today, I just do what I can.
On days like today, I just learn a little bit at a time.
On days like today, I remind myself that slow growth is still growth.
On days like today, I just take one step at a time.
On days like today, I pray for peace with who I am, where I am, and what I am.
On days like today, I just do what I can. I’m not meant to do more than that; God takes care of that part for me.
