Do you ever think about what you think about? Our thoughts may be more important than we realize. They direct our actions, our moods, our emotions. I'm working on consciously thinking more on things that are good and true and holy and honorable. Things that are pure and lovely and gracious and kind and excellent.
If you look for things of beauty and wonder in your every day life, that is what you will find.
So, I have started a new photography project. It's called Picture the Holidays, and it's aimed at keeping some joy and delight in the holidays, and not allowing the insanity to take over. I get a prompt each day to take a photograph. I have been particularly bad at taking pictures on a regular basis lately, and so this works to get me back behind my camera every day too.
Today's prompt is titled Holding onto Gratitude. Basically, think about all the things that you are grateful for, and take a picture of one of them.
This is my picture:
I'm grateful for a year that has taught me the difference that a change in perspective can make. Be it in my thinking patterns, or my photography, a change in perspective can result in a unique, fresh view of the world.
