Much like this lilac bush, I am in a season of new growth and awakening. It may sound cheesy, but it's true. I am pushing myself to behave in new ways, think differently and change my outlook on life. Today, I went to a professional conference devoted to a field in which I have great interest and only peripherally interact with in my current professional role. I talked to new people, asked questions, made connections and was amazed at how much I enjoyed the entire experience. Typically such occasions are a guarantee that I will have a headache by the end of the day. I have no doubt that the reason I left feeling energized rather than drained, is because of the work I am doing internally to become more comfortable with who I am and possibly more importantly who I am not.
Back to this lilac bush, I can't wait to photograph the blooms and wish scratch and sniff technology existed because the scent of blooming lilacs is exhilarating.
PS I am also celebrating my 100th day of taking a photo every day!
I attempted my first 365 photo project in 2011. I made it to Day 246.
