I'm learning a lot this year spending more time listening, journaling, doing all things SLOW. Surprisingly I find much comfort in writing about my feelings. I have found myself to be in a safe place and I don't want to leave it. ALL of my many questions are slowly being answered. For many reasons I found myself pondering so many things. Why does God allow suffering? What is my true purpose? What is my motivation? etc etc.
As I reflect on this year and my life I realize I cycle between high energy/projects and very slow/doing little. I have a tendency to have much anxiety during high energy Seasons and depression during low energy Seasons. The actual Seasons of the year affect my mental state. I often ponder the meaning of life (if you don't, count your blessings!)
Without going into ALL my feelings and emotions, I'm pleased to have a big breakthrough. (I am also seeing a counselor and with her help my eyes have been opened to clearly see.)
I want you to know that I LOVE to photograph. It is so healing for me to look for beauty and to see the good and the lovely.
I have always loved Show and Tell. When my friends and family come over, I love to share the creative projects I've been working on. Here on the blog, I love to share Beauty. When I experience the moments and then photograph them and then share them, I'm hoping you will savor the beauty but I'm also hoping you will be inspired to go see the real Beauty in your life. I'm hoping you will see and feel some of the great Joy I've experienced being Creative and enjoying the Beauty God gives us so graciously.
I know we don't always connect in person but if you read this blog I hope that my love for beauty and picnics moves your heart to love. I would love to connect with you if you'd like to share in a comment or send me an email; firstname.lastname@example.org
