Mundane to Marvelous
The same day I was musing about how mundane my day-to-day work is, the essay in Simple Abundance contained this quote "Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else." Judy Garland.
And here is the truth. I am pretty darn good at what I do. I may not be a famous trial attorney with glamorous high-profile cases. But what I do, I do well - first rate all the way.
The same is true of something more near and dear to most of us - scrapbooking. I can admire the way Ali Edwards ties together everyday stories with ephemera from everyday life. I can marvel at Cathy Zielski's beautiful templates and her clean, graphic style. But that doesn't mean I need to copy them or try to be like them. My own scrapbooking, in my own style is what is just right for me!
