“I don’t know where I’m going, but I’m on my way.” Carl Sagan
Several years back, while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, I got totally slammed by a huge wave. In a moment of panic, I couldn’t figure out which way was up or down. My heart was pounding and my lungs were aching for air. When I finally let go of the fight and relaxed, the wave brought me back to the top and into the sunshine.
I think maybe life is a little bit like that giant wave.
Perhaps sometimes we need to let go and just be…
As with most things in life, I started to over think the photo challenge to take one photo a day for 30 days. I wanted to have this fabulous theme. My mind raced with all the different things I could do. Since I am on a quest to improve my health, I thought maybe I could take a picture of a smoothie every morning. Or, maybe I could take a picture every morning on a daily walk. Oh, oh, oh! What if I had a color theme, like 30 days of pictures that involved the color red?
The problem with complicating the things we want to accomplish is that we end up never starting! We can plan all we want, but until we actually begin to take action, nothing is going to happen! (That is exactly why my kitchen is such a disaster!)
In the middle of all my frustration over what my first picture was going to be for this challenge, I decided I really needed to spend some time at Starbucks where I could think it all through. It was then that I saw my first picture right in front of me.
Yeah, I don’t need a theme for this. I am just going to shoot what I happen to see in front of me every day. (Yup, that is passion tea!)
