This week’s photo challenge is Everyday Life. Said The Daily Post: “This challenge is all about people and the things they do every day: working, eating, drinking, chatting, dreaming, walking, exercising, or any of those things we do all the time without really thinking about it”.
So it seemed like they were looking for a photo of something you wouldn’t normally take a photo of-say your house, your neighborhood, or your place of work-and that came to my mind first as well.
But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I didn’t work everyday; I didn’t get a chance to walk around my neighborhood every day; and I didn’t spend all day at my house. There was only one thing that was apart of my Everyday Life…my husband. He is there when I wake up in the morning and go to bed at night. He is what I think of when I’m retouching/packaging at work. He is the biggest and most important part of my life…he is my life.
So that is why I’m dedicating this weeks photo challenge to my husband-the love of my Everyday Life:
I know, I know…it’s really cheesy but I DON’T CARE 🙂
I’ve been waiting almost 9 months to be able to share this photo!
It was taken a few days after our wedding in the same location. The reason I waited so long to share this photo was because my husband and I just gave a 20×30 canvas of it as an engagement gift to my brother-in-law and future sister-in-law. We wanted them to be the first to see it as this particular sunrise has very special meaning to them 🙂
So I decided to name this photo “Love Rising” as a special tribute to them.
So I’ve been on a bit of a quote kick recently and wanted to share some that I found that really resonated with me. (I found them all on Pinterest).
Things that I have seen in others that have made me change myself: complaining (actually straight up bitching), negativity, being judgmental, talking bad about others. Learning from others has actually helped me be a better person…at least that’s what I hope.
Nothing is perfect but yet it is.
People often say to me “I could never do that” but the truth is, you can. It’s easy once you know what you want and believe in.
It’s so funny to think about this. I know I’m still pretty young but it’s amazing how much life has passed and how much I still have to look forward to.
These last two quotes represent me the most. I feel that it’s not good to dwell on the negatives; it’s not going to change anything, so why not deal with it and move on (and I’m talking about those little bumps along the road). Life is about dealing with issues as they present themselves. Not everything can be great 100% of the time, but the true test is how you handle it.
So Smile, Love, and Laugh.
