I took this photo a few days ago at my local beach. I arrived with my dog, Brock, for his evening walk just in time for this stunning display of Mother Nature and it took my breath away. I wasn't the only one appreciating the sunset either. There we were, a group of seemingly separate people, brought together by a force beyond our control. And yet we all stood in unison and in awe, each nodding to each other, recognising that this sunset was a magnificent sight.
I had just come through an intensely busy period. I was exhausted and wanted nothing more than to curl up under my bed covers, but our dog Brock needed his walk. He gets me out into all kinds of weather!
These are a few of the photos I've taken on my daily walks...and I will be forever grateful for having Brock in our life to get me out there. My son also appreciates our dog and his own opportunities for expressing one of his passions, Parkour!
I sometimes forget that all of this so close...silly me! I also sometimes forget that, in the midst of the busyness of business, of motherhood, of responsibility, and of the daily ins and outs of living, that I have just this one life in which to live...now. I forget that I can enjoy it now. I get caught up in worry and stress about things that will most likely take care of themselves in due course. It takes moments like walks in nature to realise that there is beauty in the stillness of a sunset, the blustery day of a storm, or the craziness that is my dog digging for his life!
I love taking photos of my experiences and I love sharing them with you. I want to show you my inspirations, my passions, my creativity and hopefully inspire you to live your life now, not someday, not after the doctor tells you you have one year, one month, one day to live. Live now. Love now. Laugh now.
I felt a need to retreat and regain some lost energy after the flurry of blog posts during April's Ultimate Blog Challenge. I have appreciated the quiet computer time and now I'm on my way again. I'm motivated, and reinvigorated, but with no destination other than living my life, this journey full of passion, purpose and possibility.
For another day, I am passionately yours,
Here you will find the musings of me...
