Standing still in chaos

Never ending to do lists; weekends filled up weeks ahead of time; meetings after meetings at work… We’re sometimes so busy, our life feels out of control.

But as the late author Anais Nin said: “In chaos, there is fertility.”

If we can stand still, listen and observe for a minute while chaos is swirling around us, we might be able to capture something… something special. A change in the scenery. A window of opportunity. A new sense of awareness.

So stop for a minute. Breathe. Observe. Feel……………

What’s coming up for you? What openings can you create for yourself or others from your chaos today?

    • Thank you! I’m always amazed when I think I’ve just missed a good shot because something moved into the frame, but when I look at the photo, that thing actually helped create the perfect composition… Life’s randomness can be quite pretty. 🙂

      • Agreed! Unexpected moments can be the best. If you are a match for our gallery (MH related), we’d love to feature you and this photo (or one of your others) as a featured photo of the day! I’ll just need a bio from you and some other info. Email and let me know.
