The Note Book Day 25
A Sleepless Night of Reflection
Today, I seem to have been chasing my tail. A couple of admin things that are distracting me and are out of my control. Struggling to find Photographic opportunities, so for the sake of my commitment of taking a photograpah I used my sister and a friend for a couple of quick Portraits.
The afternoon was quiet tough mentally but an exercise of mindfulness and to try and bring myself back to the moment and try to be true to myself.
Today was a difficult day to take photos but I realize that even if I cant dedicated hours to practice, its important to do what I can, so if I have only 10/15 minutes that’s fine, its the continuous daily awareness that bring you back to focus.
I have also realized or become aware that by doing the things I like, it helps me find a way out of the things I am struggling with. In the end, what brings peace is living your life your own way and making your own choices and being the best you can be without competing with anyone else’s standards. To overcome expectations, we must maintain ownership of our own choices.
Herman Hesse ” We are Sun and Moon, dear friend, we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other, it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is.”
