Shadow Shot Sunday - What I am About ...

Scroll down for Camera Critters
and Blog Your Blessings on Sunday
Mary Ann posting
thinking about what

I'm about these days ...
Here is where I start each day
writing & reading

in the shade of my
luscious lime tree with Molly
and Ms Kitty too.

See my list below
and if YOU decide to share
what you are about

please be sure to let

This is my 82ndMisty Dawn started the meme and explains the rules here.

So, I am about ...
Being present and authentic in each moment
Accepting myself just as I am
Valuing others just as they are
Recognizing we're each doing our best
Watching the sun rise and set
Looking at the changing skies
Taking photographs
Making mosaics to share
Simplifying my surroundings
Letting go of 'stuph' I don't use
Clearing clutter from my mind
Regaining focus
Eating healthily
Exercising regularly
Taking Molly on long walks at the beach
Less time at the computer
More time writing and reading for pleasure
Exploring a variety of creative outlets
Joining a writers group
Fresh crunchy Gala and Fuji apples
Half & half in my coffee
Fresh strawberries and blueberries in my cereal
Being pro-active rather than reactive
Reconnecting with people I've lost track of
Stepping out of my comfort zone to try new things
Practicing gratitude
Smiles and laughter
Seeing the perfection of imperfection
Celebrating life
Finding balance
Wider perspectives
Sharing with others
Music and dance
Listening to myself
Acting on intuition
Letting myself be ...

Nice summery shadow shots! And lovely words as well! Doesn't get any better! Have a great week!

George said...

I like the chair -- it looks as if you've got a great place to sit and think the thoughts you put into words here. Great post!

Dianne said...

I love what you're about
your collage is so comforting
pretty blue chairs and sweet critters

Looks like lots of my blog friends have taken to poetry lately, including me occasionally. My blessings recently were that I knew two friends for awhile before God took them home and that I ahve been able to capture many flowers along life's way with my new camera. My blessing next week is that I am going camping with some dear friends who think enough to include me.

I really enjoyed reading 'what you're about' and thanks for sharing! A wonderful collage. Those blue chairs are fun and the layout makes them look like a cool jigsaw puzzle :)

Lovely dappled shadows in your collage. 'What you're about' obviously brings you peace and happiness - it shows in your work.

That's a really cool collage...makes me want to sit in one of those chairs. What a wonderful list...you are excellent!

Joyce said...

Good Morning, Friend,
I LOVE the list of what you've 'been about', especially 'being proactive rather than reactive'. It's a choice, often difficult to make.

Also, I certainly enjoy the blue of your chairs! :)

Sarah said...

Hi Storyteller!
You are about lots of things I really admire. I love your list and will have a think about this. Loved your peaceful shadow shot too!

EG CameraGirl said...
