Remembering To Stay Present

August 12, 2016

A little different kind of a post today with a friendly reminder to stay present. In this digital world it is so easy to fall victim to comparison and idealism that sometimes we forget to just live in the moment. A few weeks ago I was looking through my old photos and found this shot at Lake Michigan from 2013. The image took me back to that day when the water was freezing, but I was happy and content with my life. I always try to take some time to live in the moment. It is totally okay to document your life through photography and video, just remember that there is more to life than getting the shot. Rather than capturing every single second of it on a device, put your phone or camera down and just soak it in for all it's sights, sounds, smells, feels, and tastes. That my friends, is living.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend x


  1. It is so important to just enjoy the moment and take it all in. It can be difficult as a blogger to not want to snap pictures of everything we do. But, what I've learned is that once we get the shots we want - it's best to just put the camera down and enjoy whatever we're doing. I hope you have a great weekend! Lovely post!

    Love, Lindsey

  2. So, so perfectly written. I find I'm often too obsessed with trying to get the perfect picture instead of just savouring the moment.
