Good day to you readers!
I know it’s been a while since I last blogged to ya’s. Things have been a bit crazy lately, and I’ve been mucho busy. I’m currently getting hit hard with some major car repairs, and although there is never a good time for car repairs to come, around the holidays is the least favored time of all in my opinion. But, I am trying to stay positive and remember the fact that overall, my car is still a good car, and this is not a repair I should have to do again in its lifetime. But, anyways…I digress. Although I have not been blogging on here lately, I have been blogging in notebooks, on napkins, on post-its, and on receipts. Any type of writing canvas I can find at a moment I feel inspired or compelled to speak out about something, I write on it. Then, I tuck it away for later, when I can escape to my computer. The bummer news for right now is I forgot my notebook with all my writings from the week and miscelaneous little papers that I scribbled away on.
So, for now, what I want to say is that I am learning a lot these past few weeks, enjoying and living in the present, and also excited and hopeful for what is to come in my life. I am excited to learn more about photography these next few months, possibly sign up for TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) courses at Cleveland State for the summer, and getting better at playing the guitar! I am creating my own “Happiness Project,” (thank you Gretchen Rubin) in my own life, but also thinking about ways I can bring joy and encouragement to others, especially this time of year. Last year I encouraged families at my church by giving away giftcards to them that I had received from parents at school. I had received so many giftcards, and I defintely didn’t need them all. Would I use them? Yes. But did I need them? No. This year, I haven’t quite decided what I am going to do. I have some ideas. But the great thiing is, is that I can encourage people and bring joy to their lives all year long. Think about ways that you can do the same for those in your life! Or, even for a complete stranger. 🙂 “Random” or in this case, maybe not so random, acts of kindness still happen everyday. Notice them, and be the one to carry them out sometimes. 🙂
Ok, that’s all for now. I will be posting my Let’s Be Wild Weekly Photo Challenge pick before Wednesday of this coming week, soon. The challenge for this week is peaceful. I have chosen a handful of photos, but want to narrow it down to three. I love these challenges, because the topic means something different to every blogger. It looks like something different to each photographer. I love seeing all the different perspectives. So, rest assured everyone, my photo post for this week is coming soon!!
