Walking through nature surrounded by suburbia on this blue skied sunny day!
Admiring the pink blossoms on the trees.
Escaping the stress of daily living and slowing down.
Soaking up the sunshine and feeling the breeze against my skin.
I really do enjoy days like this because they are just gorgeous.
During my walk I found a quiet place with a delightful view of nature to sit, rest and journal. Todays intuitive lead was to go out and live life each day not because I have to, rather because I am privilege too. To understand that I am so enormously lucky to be alive and on this planet during such amazing times.
I take note of my intuitive lead. I understand that I have a tendency to get caught up in the drama’s I create in my life. They don’t exist when I am in nature enjoying the view. However, when I leave get back to my suburban home and suburban life, I get caught up in the social expectations of my society. Lots of the drama unfolds in my journaling and solutions start to show up. I also think the process of journaling really helps me to slow down life, and re-focus on the things that really matter.
I wanted to record some of my walking adventure in images. These days we have the convenience of cameras on our phones which take amazingly good quality pictures. The convenience of a phone camera is that it is so easy and available to just snap and record images of our lives and days. Now I am thinking image journaling. Not so silly, recording life through images.
The above image has captured the quiet place I found to sit and journal, the walking path, the view I had, and the pink flowers I admired. It captures the blue sky day, and the beautiful park, which is surrounded by suburbia. I also think the walking track shows how easy it is to feel that sense of being in nature.
As I continue on with this blog, I will continue to use both images and words. I also hope that I can work on improving my images and being more creative in this area. Whilst I really like the idea of recording an image journal.
What do you think about the idea of image journaling through photo’s? What does it look like for you?
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
