- They are extremely expensive for what you get. Hello! I really need a package of just an 8x10 and a couple of 5x7’s for the grandparents, so why do I have to buy the $26 plus package to get that and a bunch of stuff I don’t need/want!
- The quality isn’t so great. I’m a fan of spontaneous, candid portraiture, not the cheesy smiles my children make when coaxed by a school photographer.
- Old Navy Flag T’s and camo pants. Enough said.
I’m sure everyone has days where they feel sorry for themselves, doubt their worth, and just can’t seem to find the light at the end of the tunnel. Really, if you haven’t had a day like that, you are lying to yourself! How does one cope? What are the techniques of dealing with it? My skill set included a large Diet Dr. Pepper and some Ghirardelli chocolate. I “rocked out” and cleaned the living room. I didn’t write a single word in my notebook. I festered, and I moped, kind of. I closed my mind to the chaos, and didn’t worry about anything but the moment.
Guess what…..I feel better today! I have a new outlook and sense of direction. Perhaps that is what I needed to get back on track, to sit and read with my kids, snuggle them a little closer, and not focus on EVERYTHING that is pulling me in so many directions. I can only eat the elephant, one bite at a time, and honestly, I’ll only get frustrated if I try to devour it whole.
Why do we have this burning desire to be perfect? IT ISN’T POSSIBLE IN THIS LIFE!!!! Why can’t I remember that? Oh, I can be perfect at a few things, (though the thought escapes me for what specifically), but it really isn’t possible to be perfect at everything.
Mommy meltdowns are okay. They make me sit back and re-evaluate where my priorities are and what I need to be working on. I can’t let the “stuff” of life get in the way of what is really important…my family.
