There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither. Alan Cohen
I had a very long paragraph (almost a novel) written about why I need a break from taking photos. I deleted it twice. Part of me would love a complete social media break but I know I love to connect with family and friends; I gain inspiration, I keep up with news… I genuinely want to know how people are doing. So… I am just taking a break from my photo sessions and posting about them on FB…as well as just staying off social media as much as possible! I mean, remember the days before FB? It’s like a distant memory to me. I miss the life I had before all the social media sometimes… I am as guilty as the next person; give me a link about some cute cat or child and I am stuck for an hour…clicking on links, finding out my “true” calling, finding out the state I should live in.. ha ha!! time waster. Yup. I need a break from getting sucked in because I do it to myself!
Come Summer I like to give myself and my camera a true rest. I will hopefully be delving into my box of paints; it has been forever…lord knows I have a ton of stuff to play with. Changing things up creatively will give me the boost I need to get back into my passion with photography. ~ Photography as a job can be difficult when it’s also a real passion. I have not had the energy to shoot for myself in a long time; I end up shooting with my iphone. I miss my camera/me time. Right now I am burned out BIG time. Not a good feeling at all. I plan on staying off the computer, cleaning out my desk and slowly organizing for the Fall. My husband is building me a new big desk so that will give me inspiration as well! Yes, I will post those pics; I am sure he won’t get to it until later in the Summer. Until then, If you are reading this then I encourage you to do whatever it is necessary to get your mojo flowing!!! I will be on INSTAGRAM posting random quotes and flowers, getting juiced up from nature and camping ~ filling my tank and sharing along the way!
Inspire and share! Happy Summertime:))
