11/26/11 Day 1: “smile”
Sweet inspiration! For the next 30 days, starting today, November 26th, I’ll be posting a daily
inspirational word, along with photo, each morning. It’s just another fun way to connect
with each other, especially during the holiday season. Yay!
For all of you who don’t run around with a camera attached at your hip, no worries! You don’t
need a camera to understand the messages of inspiration.
So, with that said, here’s what this is all about:
When we see something that inspires us what do we do? We grab our cameras and ‘click’ away!
Easy right? We’re inspired by something, it draws on an emotion, and we capture that moment
forever. Oh how we love to share a photo that touches us in some magical way!
Then there are the times we seek inspiration by taking long walks, a drive, or traveling to distant
places. Seeing something new…something different, brings about an excitement that hasn’t been
captured yet with our lenses…pure inspiration fueled by excitement!
But, what about the moments when we are caught with camera in hand just searching for our
next shot and it’s not happening. We see something, but it doesn’t speak to us
visually/emotionally. We’ve all been there, whether it’s walking around your home,
neighborhood or a picture perfect park, things look the same and nothing is calling out
to us. And we realize that sweet inspiration didn’t come knocking on our door that day. Ugh!
Let’s try bringing some inspiration into our day by focusing on a word that inspires us! Inspiration
opens our minds, eyes, and our lens, with new clarity and focus. It also opens our hearts.
Inspiration is magical! You just never know where you’ll find a smile…
