happy weekend.

I had my first photography class this week, and it was perhaps the cutest thing ever. In just two hours, I  learned so much about how to use my camera, but I also realized how much I love my little town with its little community center (they even offer cake decorating classes, which I think I'm going to have to sign up for next). Being there in that class on a random Wednesday night made me so inexplicably happy.

And two weeks ago, I was still on the fence about signing up (despite my New Year's resolution to get myself out there)--I'm so, SO glad I stuck with it. I remember playing sports in high school and hearing that old cliche "you miss 100% of the shots you don't take" and rolling my eyes and thinking how lame it was--that might be due to the fact that I was a terrible athlete, and managed to miss 100% of the shots I did take. I also hated motivational sports talk.But I've come to realize how true that silly saying is: the mere act of putting yourself out there and taking risks and doing things you wouldn't otherwise be comfortable with can have such an impact--my little photography class is really changing my perspective on things.

So get out there and do something you wouldn't otherwise do--it's so worth it.


  1. Completely agree. Getting out of your comfort zone is hard, but usually worth it in the end!
