So February came and went – without a blog post. If ever there was a blogging 101, the number one no-no would be to let your blog sit without a post for a long time. So I can check that box now (good start, moving right along). The number two would be to apologise by explaining how busy life’s been. Not going to check that box 😉 Do you want to know what went down? Stick around, I’ll tell you all about it.
Remember the John Lennon quote, “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans”? Well, I have my own version of it: Life is what happens while you are busy on social media. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against social media. I love interacting with you all 🙂 But something in me told me I had reached a limit. So I made a conscious decision to go offline and spend more time shooting and experiencing things. This had the effect I was going for: I can now see more clearly and breathe more freely. That in turn has led to a whole new problem: I have some thousands of pictures waiting to be worked on!
But I wanted to leave you with something more exhilarating than my personal time management issues 🙂 You know how we learn stuff from kids? If you think it’s us parents teaching them, think again! Kids – they are the real deal. They know how to eat the chocolate bits out of a bun and leave the rest untouched. If you need a creative solution to a problem, go to your kid. And one thing we should pick up from kids is dreaming.
Dreaming is one of the most underestimated things in life, for grown ups at least. Before things get better there is the dream of them getting better. A person with dreams has an unending source of happiness. Not all dreams come true but they don’t even need to. Dreams are always positive, increase your creativity, come for free, and bring joy to your heart and mind. If someone tells you “you are such a dreamer”, take that as a huge compliment! And the next time your kids are dreaming instead of doing the things they “should be doing” (see how I put it?) think of it as them “accumulating valuable assets” for later on. Us adults, we are so funny. We need fancy terms to let us know something is important 😉
To close, I have a photo quest for you (this being loosely a photography blog and all). I want to invite you to take a picture of a dream. You have limitless possibilities. What is your picture going to be like…?
Have a dreamy day! <3
