Day 73/365

I had no great revelations today. There were no major "ahas". It was just a day. Work was rough, but not terrible. I got some things accomplished today. I left some stuff undone. I enjoyed my coworkers banter, but kept mostly to myself. I passed on happy hour after work, I stayed to work on a report, captured 2 different parts of tonight's sunset, then came home grateful for a special dinner brought from Norma's.

And as I sat to contemplate my message for the day I decided that there was a message to find between the lines of my routine.

I work a lot. I work hard. But as I stood at the window of our office, camera in hand and marveled at the sunset, I realized that being the photographer that I am gives me a unique view unto itself.

Because even after a long stressful day, I saw, and captured something that took my breath away. And in that moment, my day melted behind me. I breathed more deeply, saw more clearly, and had a moment of sheer pleasure.

And when I saw this quote I thought how perfectly it fit that moment. Because these ARE the days I'll look back on, the ones I remember. The ones I WANT to remember. So in between my crazy hours, and my stressful days-- I want to make more of an effort to do just this: relax... enjoy... and create days that I'll look back on and remember... create MY "good old days."
