It’s been another tough week for the people in my life and in particular for those that surround me at work. Another week of watching them “live” a life where stress is the norm. In amidst the pressures of work, the rushing around, the meetings, the reports, three photos lifted my mood this week. Three photos that made me forget about everything going on. Three photos which made me stop and think differently about my day.
This photo was taken by @HayleyM_ (http://www.everything-inbetween.net/). She has the amazing ability to see the beauty in all things. The moon looked absolutely stunning this week. While some of my colleagues are hanging on by a thread while they struggle with stress, both at work and at home, I wish they knew that just like the constant moon which rises, comfort will come and that people around them do care.I love whales. They are magnificent creatures! So when I picked up on a tweet in the week pointing to this awesome photo taken by African Dive Adventures during the Sardine Run, I could not stop staring at it. It’s mesmerizing. This whale spoke to me too. As I stared into its eye, I realised that even though I have lost steam on a specific project, I need to push through because it might make a difference to someone’s day. Sometimes, it’s not only the big things that matter, but the little things too.
I learnt something about myself this week. I learnt that it’s okay to be proud of myself and to speak highly of my successes. I need to stop allowing others to steal my thunder. This last photo belongs to @sikspens, one of the first people I followed on Twitter. Her bio includes the words ‘happy snapper’ but as you can see, her photo is far from it! If I close my eyes, I can feel the sand in between my toes after looking at this photo. She tells me this is one of her best photos. I agree! It’s one of many that she proudly shares on Twitter and which I wanted to share with you.
Happy Weekend to all my friends and readers of my blog! Make it count!
