Keep the Camera Handy

I find that when I keep my camera handy, it's easier to notice all the amazing and beautiful things around me.  Just having the camera with me, and the possibility of getting a neat shot of something cool, really gives me a happiness boost.

Also, you just never know when you're going to stop off at the park on a normal day and witness something spectacular.  Like your daughter crossing the monkey bars all by herself.  Completely out of the blue.  Like, last time we were here, she just swung back and forth holding the first two rungs, and now suddenly, she is an expert pro monkey bar crosser.  Pretty amazing, and she was so amazed by her strength and progress!

So, friends, the moral of the story is to always keep the camera handy.

What helps you slow down and notice the beauty all around you?

  1. I did the same thing when you and your sister were young. And now my phone is my camera and I take pictures everyday, usually of lovely things I see in the woods while I walk Lucy!
