|this is was with the old camera and lens|
Then I found out that the lens was normally $600 but there was a $100 rebate if done before June 30th AND there is a $50 trade in on any lens you bring in. Add to that another $25 discount for having attended their workshop recently. I didn't actually attend this, but the nice man gave me the paper work anyway.
Needless to say my head was swimming with possibilities and dreams of going back in on Monday to make the deal!
|sometimes you just need to take the time to chew it over slowly|
The old me would have jumped at this deal and spent a few hundred dollars on new equipment in the belief that if I owned this lens I would be a fabulous photographer.
The new me said "nay nay" as I fully realize having the equipment doesn't change anything. And truth be told, I'm not fully utilizing what I have right now.
Plus I've experienced difficulty finding the time to explore the software I've purchased and haven't fully learned the current camera I own.
So, I smiled and tossed the flyer and papers into the trash knowing I have exactly what I need and it's already paid for. I no longer have to keep running after the "stuff" that will make me who I am....I'm already there.
