Life Lately According to my iPhone Photos

I’ve been M.I.A. for a bit. I’ve missed documenting what I’m learning, what’s inspiring me and who I’m sharing life with. I decided earlier this month that I would take more time to do the things I love – the things that help keep me grounded. A few of those things include, journaling, blogging, traveling, photography, creating and serving others. Here are a few photos of what’s been going on lately.

Currently Learning

I’m typically quite private so sharing what I’m currently learning via blog post seems like a stretch but here goes.

I like the idea of not over thinking, not planning, just living. Then when things go well you're pleasantly surprised.:

These days I’m currently learning to let life surprise me. This seems like a basic life lesson so you’re probably wondering why this is such an aha moment for me – I can explain. Typically, I enjoy coming to new understandings. I’m compelled to establish my own rules, boundaries, standards, and style. In other words, leaving little room for surprises or unknowns…

I’m focused on attaining my inner goals and standards. I set a particular course based on my theory of what ought to be. I work extremely hard to accomplish what I feel is important. So when things don’t go a certain way it can be quite annoying.


Funny thing is, no matter how planned or calculated I am, life has a way of surprising me. Lately, I’ve experienced a few unexpected things and well … I’ve  quite enjoyed it.

Life is richer when we let our expectations be shattered and let life surprise us. In order to be more open to surprises I’m:

  • Keeping an open mind
  • Moderating expectations
  • Shifting my perspective
