Going Through The Motions

Wanting to Keep More Than My Head Above Water!

How do you focus on what matters in living your life? On one hand you have the getting by and going through the motions. While on the other hand you have the being in the present moment. Do you ever feel like life is just speeding on by? Are you on or off or somewhere in between? It depends, right!

Is it about less doing and more being? Embrace the Present!

I know I find myself zoning out and being not interested and bored when overstimulated. I also find myself stuck and struggling and all up in my own business when overwhelmed. I feel like I need a good cleansing rain in my life to start fresh once again! Wash away all that “STUFF” going on and get focused on living!

I know for me there is one thing that will STOP me in my tracks! I do not like the impatient, unpleasant and even rude person that lives inside of me that bubbles to the surface when I feel like I cannot handle one more thing. She is one ugly, hot mess! Especially when she has indeed had enough and is ready to boil over with anger. I know I need a “time out”!

Why does that happen? That certainly is NOT the Best Me!

I think in a way it is like a self check! Put the best version of yourself out there. Remember life is speeding by with or without you! Accept that you are doing a good job and to the best of your abilities too. Give Yourself Some TLC!

You have to take the bad moments with the good moments and everything in between that comes your way! There are times where you have to jump in or at least wade in and deal with that “STUFF”. There are times where you have to engage fully and focus on the task at hand. You embrace change, accept what matters and let go of the rest!

Is it about less wanting and more living? Living the Life You Do Have!

Laugh Often, Love MUCH, Live Fully!!!

Lovey Photography

From May 2015 - March 2016, Sherry and Sean traveled the country and lived in a 5th wheel R.V. They took pictures, hiked mountains, and saw amazing sights. They are now settled in Fort Myers, Florida and are continuing to take pictures and seeing amazing sights. This is the blog of their journey from leaving St. Louis and starting an adventure, to living in Florida and doing photography. Enjoy the stories, and leave comments if you have one to share!
