Dear Me: Day 78
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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

I had to give myself a reminder today that this is MY journey. This is my path to walk, and I have to do this my way. There is no one route to healing. There is no one route to wholeness.
This project is part of my path, it's part of what's working for me. And it may seem sometimes as though I'm stuck somewhere obvious on that path, stuck at an obstacle that seem so simple to someone else-- there is nothing wrong with being stuck. No one said this was easy.
I have put off "fixing" myself for years and some of the pieces that I'm sorting through are there because of damage that has sunk deep in my soul. Those pieces don't lift out quickly, or easily. Sometimes it takes multiple brushstrokes to make a single visible mark.
The life I'm creating now is mine, pure and simple. And while I can be guided and supported and advised along the way... the actual creation of it should be done only by my hands.
In the end... it's my hand that holds the brush. Because in the end, I'm the one who will live with the final work that's created. This is my masterpiece and it's mine to create.
