Odd personal successes
Everyone concerns themselves with how to get ahead in life, how to make a name, and at 25 the whole concept has always been a mystery to me. But I suddenly had a bunch of successes this week and then a realization from them--it's doing things for free! I just checked my workplace's website and realized that the photography I do for fun is plastered all over it, along with small plant descriptions I've written. I offered to make a large print of a stunning photo I took (it's the photo circumstances that are stunning, not my ability), to give to my boss because I knew she'd love it, and realized...some real head honchos would see it in her office, more than likely, and could ask who the photographer is. I swear that's not why I offered! Yesterday I approached a really sweet woman who owns a business by my house and offered her some of the plants I can't transplant when I leave my house, because she really deserves more attention from the people who frequent her business, and then realized people could very well ask her who did the gardening (it's a busy place) because the flowers are very unusual. Wow. It's not like I'm forcing my stuff off on people, they really love what I offer, it's genuine offering, but suddenly I realize the stuff I offer will be seen everywhere, by lots of people. I feel weird and pretentious.
