in the wild

7 days. 7 ways.

7 Apr 2013

i seriously believe that every single day it is possible to celebrate something. and that’s why i created april’s photo a day journey about life. i had the help of many different people (many of you) to come up with words that have something to do with life. and the opportunity to have a word as a prompt every day, invites us (me) to find something to reflect on every day. what i have found, is that this opportunity to focus and reflect often teaches me something. or gives me a chance to think about something that i haven’t thought about in a while. not to mention, it forces my creativity a bit.

it is ironic, or coincidental, or destiny or something that i chose the journey to be about life in april. a month which, so far, has been pretty tough in our little home. having to find something to celebrate every day helps me to get out of my head, away from my worry, and remember to breathe.

and ya know what? i have found something beautiful, a moment to celebrate, every single day. take a peek at my journey so far…

day 1: (new) beginning

i began april with a tasty breakfast, some coffee, and a good book: on the road by jack kerouac

day 2: breathe
