Lost in the business of routine.
Drowning in the ordinary.
Crowding out everything we have for everything we want.
If you must lose yourself, I hope it’s the way a caterpillar sheds it’s old self to grow wings and fly to new heights.
When you get to the bottom of it, no one cares what brand makeup you use. No one is guessing which iPhone you have when they receive your text. No one is laying in bed contemplating the upgrades in your car.
People care about how you make them feel. People want real. Small town or big city: people just want to know they are loved.
It will eventually crush us, ability alone. We know we’re able, we may even push ourselves past what we were previously capable of. But if we don’t see the purpose in our ability, we will eventually run dry.
Don’t get lost in unimportant what if’s and lose your focus on the why.
Don’t hinder your purpose by getting distracted by your ability.
How you use your ability matters more than the actual ability itself.
You have a purpose. At first glance, you may not see it – or like what you see. Look again, always look again.
“THOSE WHO CHANGE THE WORLD DON’T GO OUT LOOKING TO CHANGE THE WORLD. THEY MAKE A DIFFERENCE ONE LIFE AT A TIME.”
It’s been four hours. Writing, erasing, writing, erasing.
When people ask, why photography? It’s for real life moments like these. Life isn’t always picture perfect, but how you view it is everything. Little lives with tiny voices that have the potential to grow into world changers. Family has got to be the greatest gift on this round earth.
Back in May, I collaborated with Kelsie, from Kelsie’s Closet, to bring you a simple makeup look for your travels. So excited to have this post LIVE today! Kelsie lives in Virginia beach with her Navy Sailor and puppy, a chocolate lab. Get the look below in her video at the bottom of this post!
5 things about Kelsie:
1. I’m a HUGE movie buff and love all things film related.
2. I have a chocolate lab doggie, and her nick name is ‘chocolate poop princess’.
3. I’m an amateur dirt bike rider (not really, but I’m learning!)
4. I have a serious crush on Dick Van Dyke! Every time I see that man, I swoon. The Dick Van Dyke is one of my favorite shows!
5. I’m originally from Michigan and the good ole mitten state will forever be my home.
How does Kelsie keep her skin hydrated while traveling?
Drink lots of water! Easier said than done, but when I’m consistent with drinking the H2O, I always notice a difference in my skin. I love Aquphor! ( http://go.magik.ly/ml/5tx8/ ) I use it for everything, from chapped lips to a dry flaky noise. It’s a multi-use product and a total lifesaver!
