This Season of Life: 2/52 “relax”

16 Jan

This Season of Life is a 52-week photography project through which my friend Mary and I will share photos that depict various moments from the current season in which we find ourselves. Having remained friends for the past 12 years, we have experienced a lot of seasons together (and some apart), as we now live in very different places. Having stayed in touch, we continue to share our life experiences and challenges with one another. This has been an incredible gift that continues to shape our friendship. We hope you will follow our Project 52 and enjoy the images that we share.

Something I hope to do more of this year is to take some time for relaxing and self care. This may sound strange or selfish to some, but it’s absolutely essential. We should all take more time for ourselves. I read somewhere last year that we should stop glorifying being busy. Yes, we’re all busy. Yes, we all have too much to do. But how can we make sure we do a good job with all of the tasks we take on and take care of those most important to us? By taking care of ourselves. These images show some beautiful scenes I was privileged to capture on our recent trip to Brazil. Búzios, a small coastal town in the state of Rio de Janeiro, was absolutely breathtaking. If you asked me whether I’d go back, I’d tell you I’d leave tomorrow. Talk about some real R&R. What are you doing this year to take care of yourself more?

Now, take a moment and check out my friend Mary’s photo this week. It’s kind of the opposite of mine!: Daily Commute. While you’re at it, look around her site, Moe-Digger Photography, a bit more and view our last Project 52. I am sure you will fall in love with her photos and see what a special person she is, just as I have.
