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…  :)
