Shoes are made for walkin

Shoes are made for walkin

I am so exhausted today I just did a quick shot at my place to show off a few nice items that are available at the moment. I usually walk a ton during the day while pushing and shoving patients around to get what I need for my exams. It is extremely tiring to be up and pushing and pulling and on top of that fact, our air conditioner at work is out so in our rooms its 88 degrees. Yes, I checked it with a thermometer. So, I feel like I have been at a gym my entire day and so I look at this photo and even though these heels by Essenz are just stunning, I find myself thankful I was doing all of this in tennis shoes and scrubs instead of heels. Anyway, I am done rambling so enjoy your shopping trip today. TOOTLES!

You Reap What You Sow

You Reap What You Sow

I have been thinking a lot lately about the efforts that are put into things like relationships or even blogs like this one. I have grown up a Christian and have grown up inside the church, so this verse comes to mind…

Be not deceived: God is not mocked; for whatever a man shall sow, that also shall he reap. – Galatians 6:7

Now, the whole point of the Bible is to take the word for what it means and live it how God would want you to live. In this verse, I see that what you sow you will reap. If you give good things, you will receive good things. Now, I am not a theology major, and I know there are tons of issues with this verse just by the theology classes I have taken. I do not want to go into a long discussion about how this teaches out of acts you will get good things cause we all know that isn’t always how it works. My main point with this is to get people thinking about what they are giving out to others. If you give out good vibes… are nice to others then they will be nice to you. There are the few that will not sow good things. They will be cruel and mean regardless of the things that you do, and for those people you just cannot help the things that come from them, but this does not give anyone the right to be mean back. Their actions are on them, not on you! It took a while for me to realize this. I think I have asked myself a million times what I did or could have done differently in some situations and then I have to sit and realize that this was nothing that I could have done to prevent people from being this way.

The ultimate take away from my rambling would be that you need to mind the seeds that you plant in others lives. If you are nice and kind to others you will ultimately have a better outcome and reap good things. If you put effort into relationships, then they will flourish and grow into long lasting friendships and if you put effort and good things into something like a blog, then you will feel at peace with the work that you give to others. Anyway… hope I didn’t confuse anyone reading this. Just a little realization for myself on a Sunday morning! TOOTLES

Tips for the Aspiring Blogger

Tips for the Aspiring Blogger

I came across a post the other day that was about new bloggers and maybe some tips that could be given to them in order to help them in their journey. Now, I am by no means a seasoned blogger, but I think every blogger has a few tips and tricks that they can share to help others.

I do want to first start off by saying that there is never an instant success when it comes to blogging. Blogging is about work and dedication and knowing how to combine everything into a post to make each one as amazing as the previous. There is something that you have to do which is just about summed up with paying your dues. You have to pay your dues. There are a few off situations where a person has become an instant success, but this doesn’t mean that they didn’t have to work just as hard. They just might not have been showing their hard work in learning the steps of photography and how to market themselves. It all combines into a really long process which a few have mastered and I feel like the rest of us are just picking up the pieces to get to this point.

With this said, I have a few things that you might want to listen to. The first thing would be to work on your photos. Never think that your photos are just good enough. I have a problem… slight problem… because I just am hardly ever satisfied with my work. I always feel like there is a step farther I could have taken something, or maybe a different setup that I might could have used. The take from with this is that you can always improve. Don’t settle for learning one thing and that being it. You are a student and you need to listen and learn from others. The second thing is postings. I have heard people complain about designers requiring a certain amount of views on Flickr or requiring to post in Facebook groups. Why complain about this? This is their hard work that they are giving to you to show people… why not require something in return so that you know the items will be seen? If you don’t receive the required views on Flickr to apply for an event or designer then work harder. Follow more people and receive more followers. Post in Flickr groups and look for inspiration for your own blog. I am sorry if you feel it is not fair but this has to do with paying your dues. The third thing ties into these other two perfectly. Don’t complain! Instead of taking things personal when it comes to being turned down, turn those into positive things. Let these things motivate you to do more and be better. You will hear no about a thousand times more than you will hear yes… and sometimes you will hear a no from the least expected place. I can tell you that you will need to be able to eat that humble pie.

There is so much more to list here, but I think you will probably get sick of reading my rambling. These are just my top three tips for bloggers who are wanting to work at being better. You will find your stride at some point and when you do there will be absolutely no stopping you. TOOTLES!
