I have a confession to make, I am a burned out Mama. It's true. Like many women out there I have gotten so caught up in "doing" a million things that I have forgotten to stop and enjoy the moment I am in and be grateful. For my first 21 Days Project I am going to show my "moments of gratitude" through photography. I always have my iPhone with me and I am addicted to Instagram so I thought, why not combine a gratitude journal with photography. I'm going to snap those moments that make me smile. Or take a photo of something I am grateful for like my daughter helping with the laundry. She is just the right height.
There are so many moments that come my way during the day, it's a shame to let them go unnoticed. I want to change the way I see the world and recognize the things/people I am grateful for. It will make me a better artist, a better person and will likely help me be less stressed!
Staring Sunday, August 21st, I will take photos of my "moments of gratitude". At least 3 a day. They will be posted on my flickr page and on Instagram daily. I can't guarantee they will be on the blog daily (I'm aiming to post three time's a week), but all the photos will be displayed on here eventually. I have also started a flickr group for those who would like to participate in this project and later ones. You can post photos of your projects (up to 3 a day), leave comments, start discussions and just support each others' creativity. This should be a fun adventure. I hope you will join me. I also want to take a moment and thank Kelly Rae Roberts' Flying Lessons e-course and Brave Girls' Club Soul Restoration e-course for giving me the courage to create art, blog and go down this interesting path I am taking.
