I’m very excited to announce a new product coming soon to Minor Creations…
In the spirit of Christmas:
When the seasons change in Wisconsin, they CHANGE! By noon today, Madison had 12+ inches with more on the way. Blizzard warnings and everything.
PS I don’t know why I haven’t been getting the weekly photo challenge emails but I do know that this was from the week of the 7th…Back on track now!
I know I know, I’m late on the weekly photo challenges…this just caught my eye and I wanted to impart a little wisdom. Anger is a dangerous thing. It’s ok to feel angry at some situation, but when you hold onto that anger, that’s when it becomes stressful. I’ll admit I still hold anger over certain situations in my past. It’s hard to get over things but the best thing we can do is to release it. Forgive. Become happier.
(2 posts in one day?! What’s going on?!)
I don’t know who makes the choice for these weekly photo challenges but the past 2 haven’t been very easy…’renewal’ and ‘green’ are non-existent in Wisconsin in November (I’m hoping they’re not going to choose ‘summer’ next) so I had to reach into my archives for this weeks’.
This was taken over the summer in Hayward, WI while my husband and I were canoeing (actually trying to find loons).
Lily pads as far as the eye could see…Green:
Geometry was my WORST subject in school. It was the only class in High School that I ever got a D in, and I was trying (what does that tell you?!)
It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do for this post. I thought it had to be some sort of grand photo with shapes galore-and when I couldn’t find anything, I figured I’d just skip this post…BUT NOT THIS TIME!
Ladies and Gentlemen….Geometry:
I am SO on top of this week’s photo challenge!
Foreign. While foreign (rightly so) often brings up images of things outside of your own nation, it can also apply to things outside of or different from your normal environment, or even something which is out of place in general.
Normally when someone thinks foreign, they think more in terms of a place. In this post, ‘place’ is not the meaning of foreign to me.
This week I had a very foreign topic arise…CARS. Everything about them is so foreign to me and, frankly, kind of intimidating. But, my husband and I powered through a very foreign topic and became masters….well, sort of. At least enough to purchase our ‘new’ beauty!
Here is my version of “Foreign”:
I know, I know…I missed last week’s weekly photo challenge. It was ‘big’ and before I realized that I needed to find time to take a photo, this week’s was up and I missed it. Just when I think I understand which day the challenge comes out, they switch it! (Or maybe I just think I have more time than I actually do). SO, ‘big’ is passed and we’re on silhouette.
This is one that I took a few years ago but I added a texture with a blue tint and I think it looks neat!
I was thinking the other day how much changes we go through in our lives. My thoughts started with the changes our tastes go though (for example I hated peas when I was little and now I like them) and then I found this question:
When you think of your life ten years from today, what’s different?
The more I thought about it, the more I realize how much I have changed…granted I was 15 at the time so there’s a huge difference between high school and being an adult (notice how I didn’t say ‘grown up’…I don’t think I’ll ever be a grown up!). Looking back you realize how insignificant high school actually is, even though while you’re living through it you think it’s the most important moment of your life.I am comfortable and content with myself and my beliefs, which I think comes with age. I amhealthier than I have ever been in my life (having lost almost 40 lbs 5 years ago-yes 40!) having changed my diet to reflect my thoughts and beliefs (more about that at a different time so get ready!).
I’ve changed my thoughts to be more positive and understanding which has helped me become a happier person (that and 5 years ago finding the man that would become my husband).
My life is far from perfect-it never will be and I don’t think I want it to be but I want to make sure I never stop changing.
