It's been great. Really.
I'm new to blogging and still feeling a bit wary of posting photographs of my family and friends here, so even though this is really what I'm most grateful for, I didn't share that part of my life here.
At first I felt like I was leaving something out, and wasn't really being true to myself and my portrayal of gratitude. However over time I realised that instead of being a limitation, it pushed me to notice the little things I'm grateful for. It opened up a whole new world of gratitude, and turned this practice of photographing gratitude into a mindfulness meditation.
Yes.... I'm grateful for my glorious husband, my wonderful children and my lovely lovely friends and family. But..... I'm also grateful for the feel of the sun on my skin, new flowers in the garden, a peak at the moon in the afternoon, the special stones my son collects for me and the sound, smell, feel and sight of the beach (oh yes...... the beach!).
Would you like to join me?
I've loved this so much, and had so much wonderful feedback, that I'm going to create a space where we can share our photographs of things we're grateful for.
Together, we can capture gratitude.
Details to come.... but please let me know if you're interested, and stay in touch x
