Stand Alone

Yesterday on What I Wore, Jessica's post really spoke to me. It was a reminder to herself not to try to be anyone else, to stand alone. I've been struggling over the last year with trying to find who I am as a photographer. I've always been extremely self-conscious and worried about how other people perceive me. Throughout college and after college I gained confidence and have become more outgoing. Although there are times when I feel like I slip back into that awful feeling of not being comfortable with who I am and I feel incredibly anxious about it. This post is a reminder to me that I shouldn't compare myself to anyone, including other photographers or artists. God created me for His glory and I want to use the talents and gifts that He has given me to glorify Him. As Jessica said, "You are you. Stand alone."
