Dear Me: Day 101
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).

I found this little flower and I think it's meant as a gift tag, but it caught my eye because all of the words inscribed on the petals have been used to describe me by people I love and admire.
And it seemed almost to jump at me, in my fever-addled haze this week, that maybe it's time I actually believed that sometimes other people see me more clearly than I see myself.
We are so quick to believe the negative things that people say throughout our lives, to believe the one mean kid that called us ugly, or stupid. But at the same time we constantly and consistently dismiss when people tell us that we are, for lack of a better word: wonderful.
When we start to believe that maybe those lovely voices are actually right... we blossom. I blossom. I'm trying to blossom.
So, instead of hearing over and over and over the one single voice of dissent... I'm trying to hear the myriad of people telling me I am better than I've believed myself to be.
