This photo probably doesn’t mean anything to you. In fact you probably find it not to great to look at. However, to me, this is a moment of pure bliss. I was sat out in my car, at the side of the road, facing a field of flowers. I was really happy. I love these moments.
Why was I happy? I was accepting that moment at that time. I wasn’t judging who I was or what I have or have not done. I was enjoying the sun setting on an early Autumn’s afternoon. I was in no rush and had no agenda. I was just being.
Nature has this special way of making everything OK for me. It takes me away from everything and brings me to the now.
I opened the window and stuck my head out of it, put my feet up on the other seat and looked at the sky. It was such an amazing moment that I felt the need to take this photo.
Taking a photo doesn’t ruin a moment. Sometimes you just don’t want to forget a wonderful experience. When I look at this photo I feel the same feelings inside that I did that day. I can see that it is achievable. I can remember telling myself that life is beautiful.
To feel like this, I had to accept the bad along with the good. I had to experience the bad in order to feel the peace in this moment and I had to be okay with that.
