new year

This snippet stuck with me today: set intentions, not resolutions. In that spirit I’m setting the intention to get back on track photographing one image per day of love or beauty. I enjoy looking for the good & beautiful. Sometimes the task seems daunting with the greys of winter. And then I laugh. A daunting task, really? How easy it is if I just open my eyes. So happy new year y’all. Cheers! xo -dawn

This is just after sunrise on High Rock Lake. Edited with the kelvin filter on Instagram and type via WordSwag. The sunrise was downright stunning in it’s original state. I’ve been using some of my photographs in conjunction with these sayings that I truly believe in and am just now starting to comprehend as truths. It’s taken me a long time to get from hearing to listening to believing and applying.

I originally used this as an image for Monday’s yoga line-up at Santosha Yoga. This is a studio I’ve been practicing with for over 7 year. The teacher is amazing & I view her as a personal guru, I’m for-realsies on this. I love listening to her words & felt this since day one. Don’t worry, I’m not falling down the hole of hero worship because I know she has her flaws. But an inspiration to me? A genuine yoga bad-ass? Yes indeed!
