Yesterday, while clicking through a few good blogs I read this post from Squiggle Mum. It reminded me of way back, when I took up the challenge to post my un-tidy kitchen photos and when I joined in with A Foothill Home Companion to post a ‘real life’ moment… and then I clicked on over to A FootHill Home Companion and this sentence caught my eye…
“For some reason, taking pictures of little disasters like these helps me put things in perspective.”
All this has got me thinking….
I’ve been blogging a lot of words lately and not so many photos. I’ve not been motivated to pick up the camera lately. I blame bad light or an untidy house or messy kids. What’s the point in photographing any of that, those shots are not ‘blogworthy’. And yet, maybe they are!
Maybe that’s just what I need to do to get my motivation back. To get over myself and learn to find joy and beauty in the not so perfect bits of my life. To find some perspective. So I’m setting myself a challenge!
The Perfectly Imperfect Life Challenge.
Every day next week I am going to post a photo. An imperfectly perfect photo. I’m going to find the joy in snotty noses and sinks full of dishes. I’m going to embrace grumpy faces and unfolded washing.
Feel free to join in if you like. You don’t have to post every day, or you can if you like. You can just put up a photo, or add a few words or write about something totally different…. no rules. If you post let me know and I’ll link you up in my posts. Starting Sunday… or maybe Monday… no rules remember!
