Inspiration: Shoot for the Moon

To take the time for yourself by being in the outdoors is a gift you give to yourself.

Being present with your surroundings is an even bigger gift.

Sharing with others establishes a positive connection.

Sounds so simple. Not so simple.

Beauty in people, places and things are sometimes easy to see and sometimes it takes extra effort and focus.

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.

Henry David Thoreau

This blog shares pictures of different places and remarks on how “present” you may need to be to find its beauty.

An ocean facing sunset is a beautiful but an easy sight to behold.

I share some of those moments with you that were not as easy to see. I had to learn to see them. I had to be present.

A weathervane with a bow and arrow shooting the moon is not as easy to find unless you are focused on what is around you and you’re fully present in that moment.

Being Present Gift of the Day

Next time you’re outside, any where, I challenge you to pause and really look around you.

The shape of a rock, the color of the leaves, the intent of the squirrel, the sounds of the water.

Do you see it any differently when you look at it with a higher degree of appreciation?

This is a non-promotional blog. I am not a photographer nor am I selling anything through this blog. Professionally I am a Business Transformation Specialist focused on gaining efficiencies and reducing costs for major corporations. Recent life experiences made me better appreciate the present and all that can be seen by increasing my focus and attention on my surroundings. I always enjoyed going out and exercising and I would look but I did not see as my attention was on resolving some problem. Captured through pictures and sharing insights about various locations, I hope others can enjoy my research and insights and allow themselves to pause a few moments and truly appreciate and learn new things. When you follow me that is my only gift. To know I have touched you enough to want to follow the blog. Respectfully (Stay Safe), Belinda Sheets Business Transformation professional with interests in photography, hiking, bicycling and kayaking and learning how to be present.
