Are you tough enough?

You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.--Rosalynn Carter
I'm a quote freak, I love them. I often go searching for them. I found this one just before starting this post. Yes, I know I'm supposed to be working on the wedding pictures. You don't have to remind me. NO, I'm not finished with them. (Wade has asked me several times in the last couple days if I was finished and each time he came in to ask I was goofing off)
So what does the quote have to do with any of this? I don't know. I guess maybe it's a matter of questioning my ability. I have worked on the pictures but I find myself needing to walk away when I don't feel like I have the ability to do them justice. I think I'm doing the right thing though. If I keep working at them with the wrong attitude I probably won't put forth my best effort. I need to clear my mind and wait until my confidence is back up to par.

It probably does help to walk away before frustration sets in but I think you're being too hard on yourself. The photos you've shown have been beautiful!

I, too, alove quotes :) That is a good one. I often have trouble with the confidence and the follow through, bleh. Guess we can thank mom for that one!

You are doing the right thing by walking away, I agree. It helps to take a break and come back in a better state of mind.

You really are doing a great job on the photos though!
