Focus

I can say most assuredly that I spend about 80% of my time worrying about tomorrow and thinking about the past. I’ve been this way all of my life. 

I have always envied the characters in books who live and breathe by that ‘live in the now’ mentality. 

Spontaneity is not a trait I possess. In fact the only thing I can do spontaneously, is worry.

So lately, I’ve been trying to shift my focus (believe me, it takes a lot of commitment) to the present. Enjoy right now. It seems easier than it really is. 

One of the things that has helped is getting outdoors to take photos. I have a Nikon DSLR that I have zero idea on how to use but, I’m not trying to work for National Geographic. I’m embracing being a complete amateur and  I find myself enjoying the day and the fresh air. 

Looking through the lense I forget about the things I have to do, or the things I have been through. 

Whatever helps, right? 🙂 

This Seaside dude graciously allowed me to shoot him this morning. And that surfer didn’t have a choice.
