Life is crazy busy and it's EASY to stay focused on the to-do's of it all and miss the littlest moments that mean the most. My camera is my tool to slow down, reconnect with the present moment and savor WHO my kids are right now in their current stage of life AND what makes MY heart happy with joy. When life is busy and I see something that makes me light up with a smile, I stop, grab my camera (iPhone or SLR - it doesn't matter because what does matter is that I capture the moment...), click what I see and SAVOR the FEELING of that LOVE. My camera is my tool that helps me stay focused on the good!
Today, I did this...
It's been SO long since I've taken pictures of flowers. And today, I got my chance. While snapping away, I realized that I'd forgotten how much I LOVE capturing beauty of flowers.
To me, there's nothing better than focusing on the vibrant colors and the softness of the petals all while connecting with the feeling that flowers always look as if they're looking up to the sky with a BIG o'le smile on their face, which, always makes me smile, too!
Snapping that beauty of flowers and then editing them in photoshop always, ALWAYS, makes my heart smile. It's amazing how all the stress of the day literally melts away when I stop for a moment with my camera and focus on the beauty that nature provides.
I'm SO grateful to live in a world that provides this beauty and I'm SO grateful that I'm able to allow myself to slow down and savor it all in this way.
Because life is SO much better when you let your PASSION bloom, right? Right!
So tell me...
What's something in nature that makes YOU smile BIG and fills your heart with passionate JOY?
Life IS colorfully passionate...SAVOR it up!
