For me, reading the blog of Jasmine Star is what pushed me through. The honesty and knowledge she provides is unheard of in this industry and more importantly, she's a fighter. She never let her insecurites stop her from achieving her goals, even though she wrote about them honestly and frequently, and now is one of the top photographers in the country.Take one browse of her blog and you will have a mountain of inspirational words, images and useful knowledge for days and days. And, if you're not a photographer, but like anyone, could use a little pick me up, I hope this little dose of awesomeness in words, I posted up above, gives you a litte extra pep in your step. As for me? I'm gonna go pep all around with my baby today, it's 90 degrees out and meant to be enjoyed.
