I've started a little thing....let's see how long I can keep it up!
What inspired this little "thing" of mine?
Well, I had been taking part in a few photo challenges...as you do....
There was the photo a day over on Fat Mum Slim.*
Then there was Project Life 365...**
And there was A month of over on Just B....***
I tried them all.
I tried them all at the same time. Which was, like...3 photos a day.
Phew! That was a bit much.
And then I thought I would just pick the prompt that I liked the beast and do that....and then I found myself wandering round my house, or my garden and just snapping the same old crap.
It all became a bit of an effort.
Then....I met Hayley Bartholemew at the Voices of 2013 masterclass (well, I didn't actually meet her face to face, you know, but I FEEL like I've met her)
She started a project called 365 grateful and I encourage you to go and check it out - it is awesome.
So I was feeling a little flat, stressed maybe, feeling quite negative about myself and my lack of energy some days.
I thought I needed a boost....something like 365 grateful, something uplifting, something to help me see the positive, the bright-sun-shiny-side of life.
I also do quite like having to take a photo a day, to document itty-bitty-bits of my life.
I wanted to choose things that would make me feel good, but with a wider scope than being grateful.
I want to find something every day that I like....no, LOVE.
It could be something around me, or an activity, or something I've seen on-line, or a book, or a song, or a movie.....or food or drink!
It can be ANYTHING at all!
But the main thing is to find something every day to love, no matter how small or silly, or radical.
So now that is my daily "thing" now.
Feel free to join in, if and when you desire....could be fun, yes?
Tomorrow I'll post some of my photos from the start of my little "thing".
come back and have a look.
