Sometimes we get so bogged down in our day to day realities, that we forget there are bigger scarier realities out there. I’m not one to follow the news, unless it’s good news, sometimes I do get sucked into some horror story online, but in general I choose not to listen to all the bad there is in the world.
While this helps keep me in better spirits, on the whole, it does also have the effect of me living in my own little bubble of love, happiness and positive thinking. Every now and then, I guess it’s good to get some perspective and pop my head out to get some grounding.
Today was one of those days. I went out on a shoot, which is far removed from the type of shoot I usually do. This type of shoot has the effect of reminding me that I have so much to be thankful for and the troubles and obstacles that come our way, aren’t really that terrifying, when compared to what others have to endure.
These obstacles that come our way are opportunities for us to become creative problem solvers. We have the resources, the intellect and the ability to find solutions, so these obstacles, aren’t really that bad. So today I’m grateful for that reminder.
