Stop and Look
Why don’t we treat ourselves the same way we do sunrises?
I’m not trying to be cute.
When you take a moment and watch the sunrise it feels . . . special, sacred. Yet it happens every day!
And everyday the sunrise is different.
Sometimes is bright and brilliant. Other days it seems dull and lackluster.
Always there, always different.
We’re the same right?
Everyday we’re here.
We see ourselves every morning and we’re always a little different.
Why can’t you feel awe and inspiration when you look in the mirror?
Why can’t you be just as breathtaking?
Why can’t I always see the divine makings of who I am?
Maybe it’s the planning? The moment we decide to take, the effort to watch a sunrise that makes it so magnificent.
We need to take moments for ourselves. Plan and be ready and expect to see something magical when we see ourselves.
That’s what makes your portraits and photoshoots so special- it’s a planned and excited moment mixed into the everyday of life.
It’s a special time when you decide to stop and look at something that’s there everyday but you make it special.
You choose to stop and look.
You choose to see.
And when you do, this once seen as ordinary person, just like an everyday rising of the sun, shines forth with brilliant light that makes your heart burnt and your eyes weep.
You’ve chosen to see yourself as you are. You’ve glimpsed celestial divinity.
