Dear Me: Day 31
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

More on Forgiveness. I liked this unattributed quote as I ran across it today. The idea that forgiveness is not just about forgetting but about remembering. When we hold onto anger, to pain, to that sensation of being wronged... we allow those emotions to take up space in our hearts, in our souls even-- we let them live rent free in a space that could be filled with joy, or laughter, or hope.
Forgiveness doesn't mean we forget what has happened to us, it means that we know once and for all that our futures are more important than our pasts. In my journey, there are 3 people I am still having trouble forgiving. One of them, sadly enough, is myself. And maybe that's where I should begin, in earnest. Forgive myself for imagined wrongs, and real ones. Forgive myself for wasting 20 years of my life in a prison I didn't deserve. Forgive myself for not realizing how much I was worth all that time. Forgive myself for all the catching up I have to do now, because of the risks I wasn't willing to take when I should have. Forgive myself for all the experiences I haven't had yet because I was so sure I didn't deserve them.
Forgiveness isn't just about moving forward-- it's about beginning. Again, and again, and again. It's time to begin again. Now... I just have to figure out how to move from recognizing the need for forgiveness... to the actual forgiveness.
