Photography is one of my self care practices. Having my phone on me all of the time allows me easy accessibility to snap photos of my every day moments. It is something that is quick and simple to do and it reminds me to slow down and seek out the beauty and joy of each day.
The photos aren't perfect. They are ordinary moments that are extraordinary because they are a part of my day. The flower in my parents backyard. The life of a runner captured with sweaty clothes hanging up to dry. The rainbow I noticed because I decided to look up. These are the moments of my days that weave together a beautiful life. You have moments like this to.
Sometimes a month can whizz by in the blink of any eye. With the app Project365 I am able to put my month together visually in an easy and fun way. These monthly captures become a beautiful reminder of all that was. There are moments that I forgot about and looking back I am reminded of the way he made the bed. The night I sat on the porch alone writing for hours. Crushing through 20 miles and feeling so proud for finishing.
I love having each month in photos. At the end of the year it is going to be so lovely to look back at the months that I have and be reminded of the memories that were created. There is so much goodness in this life. When we pause to remember it we are reminded of how sweet the every day moments are and we are filled with joy for all that we are blessed with. This self care practice fills me up with gratitude.
If you give this a try I would love to see your photos.
