Are you doing what you love, even it’s only for a few short minutes every day? Per week? Per month?
I know what makes me happy. That’s when I have my camera in my hands. The feel of it, the weight of it , it’s cathartic for me. I don’t even have to snap a picture yet, to feel the wave of happiness begin to wash over me. When I look through the viewfinder, it’s therapy. I love the process of focusing, composing, finding light. When I go a few days without my camera therapy, I get a little grumpy. And I know that it’s what I need. Me and my camera need a few minutes together. I respect this need of mine, I take the time to practice what it is that I love. How about you? What do you love? Maybe it’s a curl up with a great book, or a run, or cooking a new dish. Do you take the time to do what you love? I have the lovely advantage of getting to do what I love for work, but I make sure that I pick up the camera just for me, a few times a week. It’s important to me, and it’s what I adore.
I hope you all get to do what you love this weekend.What’s everyone up to?
Have a very happy Friday, and gorgeous weekend. xo
Oh, and I love this quote!!! Work at what you love!!!
“Do what you love. Know your own bone; gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw at it still.”
Henry David Thoreau
