When I read all your beautiful blogs, and look at your amazing pictures, and admire your gorgeous outfits, and ooo and awe over your wonderful handmade goodies, usually I feel...
- amazed at all the crafty women out there
- excited about your new baby and adorable kiddies
- ready to try your new recipe
- thrilled with how your latest project turned out
- proud that we are bloggy buddies!
But sometimes I feel...
Have you ever heard the Ben Folds song, there's always someone cooler than you?
Like you've got nothing to prove
No matter what you might do
There's always someone out there cooler than you
It's a pretty good song. It has a few swearsies in it, though. And I'd like to point out that the song ends with the lyrics "nerds gone wild, yea yea yea."
Anyway, the point is that blogging is a great big world of amazing people. And sometimes it's easy to feel, well, not quite as amazing as the rest.
Have you ever felt this way? How do you give yourself a bloggy boost of self confidence?
Here's a few words I turn to when I feel like I'm not up to snuf.
"There are different kids of gifts, but the same spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men." 1 Corinthians 12: 4-6
"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in Glory." Colossians 3: 1-4
In all things we were created for uniquely beautiful purposes. In our bloggy lives, our home lives, our family and wifey and mommy lives. I love showing you a glimpse into my life. There will always be cooler bloggers than me, but I'm just going to keep on smiling.
