Ordinary Thoughts On An Extraordinary Day

No day is ordinary.
And if you think you are living through an ordinary day, 
you are not really living... you are just getting "through" it!


How can a day that starts out in one of a million variations of this...


be anything but extraordinary.

Magical, actually!


It just takes being present and really seeing what is around you.


And although what surrounds you may be completely different from
that which surrounds me each day...
there is magic to be found everywhere!


And although I enjoy blogging and sharing my world with you...
I have to say that blogging has truly enriched my life.


Carrying a camera all day in search of amazing moments...
brings amazing moments into one's life!


And that, dear friends, has been the biggest gift to me.
I would encourage everyone to find and capture just one moment each day that you find
extraordinary....and your life will be filled with gratitude.


It needn't be through the lens of a camera...
just through the lens of your soul...
and make sure you add a filter...
one for beauty!



You can find it just about anywhere you look!
And that's something for which you can be truly thankful!

You are inspirational, truely. What a wonderful perspective on life. Thank you for sharing, you have made me feel much better and grateful for what I have. Sometimes one can get lost in the hum drum of routine life day in day out (work etc) and not stop to really appreciate things. One thing I have learnt (and I wish I had learnt it when I was younger) is to be in the moment!

What a lovely post- You and I see much of the same things through our lens - Lately, it's more important than ever to look for the good, and there is so much of it everywhere. I need to shift my focus away from current political climate and -look for the good-. Thanks for the reminder.

Beautiful shots! I have to agree that photography makes you see the world differently. It makes you see! And be aware! Have a beautiful day

That head shot of Annie is magnificent. It should be a painting.
