One of the things I really want to try this year is take more pictures with my iPhone. It’s a very capable camera after all. And always with me as opposed to my big-big-heavy Canon. I have an Instagram account and I’m constantly in awe at the kind of stuff people are able to shoot with their phones. I absolutely want to up my game. Also, just play a bit more. But, most importantly I want to teach myself to notice the little wonders of life and practice gratitude on more regular basis.
Life is made up of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a long stretch of gray cement. It would be wonderful if they came to us unsummoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that won’t happen. We have to teach ourselves how to make room for them, to love them, and to live, really live. – Anna Quindlen
I want to make a conscious effort to notice. To slow down. To pay attention. To choose gratitude.
And I was hoping you’d like to join me.
For the next two weeks I’ll be tagging my Instagram photos with #iseewonders. If you have an Instagram account (if you don’t- get one!) and would like to play along, simply tag your photographs of the small wonders in your life with #iseewonders You can also hashtag photos on Twitter and Facebook.
It doesn’t have to be anything big and super amazing. It actually shouldn’t be ;) Small things that maybe would normally annoy you, but instead you decided to smile. Like fingerprints on a window :)
You will be able to see all of them here and my bet is it will lighten us all up.
At the end of the month I will select a few to post here, on Halituli and link back to your Instagram feed. There will be also a giveaway from my newly opened print store.
