Overthinking the crap out of everything since 1962

"You think too much."

Yep and I can't make up my mind to save my life.

What I'm thinking about right now:
Which sewing project should I start next?
My health.
I haven't really taken many photos since my grandkids left.
What am I going to wear to my 'new' nieces wedding?
Watercolor painting.
It's hot in here.
A photo paper test print project.
Making prints for my hallway project and my sister's studio.
Am I really hungry again?
My photo card project.
Studying newborn photography.
Should we just have salmon and salad for dinner or should we have rice too?
Editing photos.
Going back to school, again.

These are just some of the topics rolling around in my head, all at the same time. If I were to drill down on any one of them here, I could go on for days and it would break the internet. Aint nobody got time for that.

When I came back to this blog months ago, I stated my goal was to post and share about my journey learning more about my camera and photography. I'm still trying to do this.  I also wrote about how I wanted to post daily. HA! Well, here I am, all over the map. I'm lucky I can decide on a topic and organize my thoughts enough (sort of) to post once a week.

My whole indecision and overthinking issues peak when I'm editing my photos. This keeps me from actually getting to work on them. I know that when I sit dow to edit, I will be there for far too long unable to decide what looks best; brighter, darker, more saturation, color, or black and white. And so, so much more. Make my butt hurt from sitting too long.

I've discovered that I am doing it wrong and it's okay. I need to stop letting other people's opinions commiserate with my inner critic and just do this and all the other things I want to do. I also really need to learn and practice meditation.

I'm going to wrap up this post with a photo of my granddaughter that I've edited in color and black and white. Here, there is no question, I love both edits.
