September Sunsets in Tamarindo, Costa Rica –
Chasing sunsets has become a tad bit difficult with the rainy season grey gloom that has set in. Add in a week of no surf, and my gills are starting to dry up! Too much time to work and not enough time to play has also allowed oh-so-pesky self-doubt to creep in. Usually seeing other photographers’ beautiful work inspires me, but self-doubt has me questioning, “Am I good enough?” High level comparison, i.e. looking from the outside in, can be such a downward spiral of doubt.
In the midst of getting caught up in my own head, last night I just I just so happened to tune into one of my favorite podcasts, the Jess Lively show, and of course one of the topics discussed in that specific episode was the comparison game. Just the slap in the face I needed. I sure needed that reminder that it is OK to admire (and not compare) because we all are different and our paths are different. As the guest on Jess’ show said, put one foot in front of the other, because the next moment is going to happen no matter what. As long as what you do comes from your heart center, and what you believe in, it is going to be the right path. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
One foot in front of the other, inhale, and just do me.
P.S. despite the rainy season grey gloom, when Mother Nature decided to put on a show this week, she REALLY put on a show. Enjoy the showstoppers from this week.
