I have wanted to start this category for a while now. I have so many things I would love to share, memories, inspiration, sharing my thoughts while projecting towards the future with a positive spin and bright attitude.
I know for a fact that is not always easy. Often times we find ourselves in less than perfect situations, hardships, loss and pain. This can make us feel uncertain and frustrated so when everything else fails, I turn to my memories. The good ones to remind me of the times when life was great, my loved ones and I were happy and together and sometimes the unavoidable bad ones serve me as proof and evidence that I have it in me to succeed and come back even stronger from tough times.
Photos are a perfect way to capture out past and memories and an easy way to project our future. “An image is worth a thousand words” is the perfect statement for this exercise. I take pictures of anything and everything. From a pair of shoes to a family vacation or a friend’s birthday party. I like to keep familiar and loved faces and spaces within my reach all day, every day. At work, at home, my phone, etc.
A great way to project towards the future is to create inspiration boards or even by looking at a mental image and paint a “picture” of what you want to achieve. I use this when planning a get together, a project or a trip. I always add color to my plans, literally. ”everyday is a gift” my late mother thought me and I try to honor that to the best of my ability so when I capture all my moments I am also capturing my future source of joy and reassurance when times get though. I recommend it!
