A Not Quite 10 on 10

Friday, January 10th, 2014 15

Our splinter group of Shutter Sisters is continuing our new tradition of sharing 10 photos on the 10th of each month. We started with sharing 10 photos from our time together in Tofino, then followed that up with 10 festive photos enjoying the holiday season. This month, with the new year upon us, we decided to focus on “restart” as a theme.

As I’ve said before here, I do love a fresh start, a clean slate, a new page on the calendar. So, how have I been I been restarting this year? First, the holiday decorations were carefully put away…

Ease is another one of my core desired feelings and I am inviting it mightily into my year and my daily life. Interestingly, I am seeing how secure embodies and allows for ease.

Snowing_rsThat’s what my “restart” to 2014 looks like so far. You might be saying, “What?! Wait! There’s only 5 photos here! Where are the other 5?” My answer — they haven’t unfolded yet. And ordinarily, I would have frantically taken 5 more photos to make sure I had 10 to share — after all, this IS a 10 on 10 post! But, I’m restarting. I’m allowing ease into my life. I’m feeling secure in my work and who I am. And so, I’m staying loose, and letting 5 be okay this time around.

    This has such a great, chill feel to it. It’s like the ease oozes out of your words and photos and through my screen. Thanks. I could use a little. xoxo

    I really like the idea of the connection between “secure” and “ease” – sounds like something Maslow might have pointed out. Love it!

  4. look at you, being all loose and ease and secure in things unfold … love it all, and you. xoxo

  5. Would be honored to use that “ease” shot on my website, Meghan!

    Ohhh M I love how relaxed I felt after reading this post. Someone signed an email over the holidays wishing me “ease” and I thought it so odd, ya know as a business communication but now that I think about it we could use a little integration of the right and left brain couldn’t we? I’m going to invite some of that ease into my life right along with my get sh*t done mantra.
