Wow. Where do I even begin?
How do I explain the happiness I feel inside me?
Let me try.
My life has always been up and down. Not so much on the outside, as much as it was on the inside. Then I got married. Became a photographer. Had kids. Four of them. And those ups and downs were now UPS and DOWNS. It got to a point many times where I just didn’t think I could take it anymore. Someday I may be able to share that part of my life. But for now…
…I want to share my 365 Grateful Project originally inspired to me by Hailey Bartholomew. I’ve always used Instagram to document the random happenings in my life. The end of 2013 rolled around, and I thought about how I wanted to start a 365 project and challenge myself to stick to it. Especially since, aside from God, family, music, and photography, I’ve never been very consistent about much else in my life. I found out about the 365 Grateful Project through a friend, and am SO GRATEFUL for it. In the past 6 months, I have been the happiest I have ever been in my life. Like, I-am-not-even-the-same-person-I-was, HAPPY.
Today marks the 100th day of my 365 Grateful Project on Instagram. It has taught me to take a moment every day to just stop, and appreciate the little things. And just “be”. It has made me a better mother, a better photographer, and a more mindful, thoughtful human being.
These are just a few of my favorites images from the past 100 days of my life. All taken with my iPhone 5s. You can follow me on my Instagram, or search for the hashtag #365ghetes.
