After I posted about the most recent Unplugged Project, I showed the post to Roland, to show him how "cool" I was that I'd found a picture of Paige's game online. He asked me if I took the picture, and I said no, that I'd found it. I told him that I was a little disappointed that I hadn't been able to get a decent picture of the "Rockstar" Cookies, or of Paige in her apron, but I knew that I just needed to post it and have it be "done," or I could easily obsess over getting a perfect picture in there, and as a result stress myself out. Michelle has said to me, "are you getting stressed out over something that is supposed to be fun?" Of course. I know that I enjoy reading blog posts with nice photos, and I've been very frustrated that I have a hard time taking what I feel is a "decent" photo. I've been wondering if I'm a horrible photographer or if I need a better camera or both. So I told myself that I was just going to go ahead and post my Unplugged story, and if I discover that one of the pictures I took of Paige in her apron actually came out decent enough, I can always post it later. Roland told me, "that's what you should post about next." So here I am, continuing to try and work on eliminating the perfectionism. I hope nobody minds some imperfect posts.
