Let’s be grateful...
It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of 2022. This time of year brings with it all “the feels.” The excitement of the holiday season is fast approaching as is the need for quiet reflection on all that has come and gone in our lives since January. We are caught between all that is yet to come and that has been and is now just a memory. Aren’t you glad that you have taken a photo a day to help you remember, honor, and celebrate all that this year has given to you - things beautiful and maybe not so beautiful, moments big and small, events both happy and sad. All that you have experienced in taking this year’s photos will inform every photo you take from here after. None of us are the same person that we were on January 1.
Our weekly themes for this month are Gratitude, Brown, Animals, and Color Combinations. As we take our November photos, regardless of the actual theme or prompt, let’s do so with a deep sense a gratitude. Let’s be grateful for each photo that we are able take. Let’s be grateful for the amazing human that each of us is. Let’s be grateful for this incredible community of supportive and talented photographers and friends and the diversity among us. And let us be grateful for the whirlwind of activity and emotions that this time of year brings with it.
Remember, as life becomes a little more hectic, to enjoy yourself. Don’t let taking your daily photo become burdensome. A one-and-done photo with your phone because that is all for which you had time is certainly reflective of your day…and that is what this project is all about. Be kind to yourself. And have a grateful heart.
Happy November, everyone!
