Things I Love 1.1

Oh, New Years.

I know everyone is really exited 2016 is over, but I read something before the year ended that served me well. I don't remember it exactly, but it was something to the tune of 'don't wait, one day is the same as the next.' Kind of like that. And I think that's true. I mean yes, it does feel metaphoric and symbolic and all of those good things to wish someone well for the new year or to resolve to be a better version of yourself, but we also have this opportunity daily. To let a little more go and grow something new in that new space in between. 

Spoken like a true yogi. 

Anyway, Happy New Year, and don't put too much pressure on those resolutions. You can start over any day.

Things I Love 12.12

I like how dusty these leaves are, I feel like I'm trying to bring in more real elements into my photography. You know, instead of perfection, because who needs perfection anyway? Reality is a lot more interesting. 

I'm beginning a yin yoga class this January and recently taught to instructors and I forgot how much I love the vibe of a yoga studio. I'm not sure I have very many big revelations this week, just learning to surrender and that things can be easy. 

I'm easily overwhelmed by this thought. source: Eat Live Wear

"I could never wrap my head around the idea of love. For some, it was a person, a cheery memory, a reason to move forward. But for some, it was a distant memory, a drought, a long forgotten incident. I asked my mother how should I know what love truly is; and she told me: 
Love will never be a person. It will be the respect in your eyes and care in your heart. It will also be the worry in your mind and pain in your head. It will come in all your passions, sounds of the laughter of your friends and glimmer of all the things you care about. Don't cage it around the idea of a person; this is the only way it would hurt — The Idea Of Love // writing journal entry # 3"

This is perfect, as is.

I love this, and I very much wonder how much time it took to set up, and how they go electricity out there, or maybe it's just Photoshop but I doubt it. It's not Photoshop, he sets these lights up in the great outdoors, and it's perfect. source: Jung Lee
