The present moment is where all signs, parallel worlds and miracles are to be found.
I love this quote because I believe miracles and magic truly are only found in the present. And that is why I strive to capture everyday moments with my camera. To celebrate the now. By doing so, it forces me to live in the moment, and not get too caught up in what’s next. And nothing forces you to live in the moment quite so much as travel.
Last summer I traveled to Ireland with my husband and his brother and wife. We planned a few things, but mostly, left large chunks of the day to explore and be spontaneous. Here are a few things I learned by truly turning myself over to the present while in the Emerald Isle.
1. Find beauty in the details
…because beauty is everywhere.
2. Eating local is always better
…no matter where you happen to be.
3. We are all small beneath the large, unending sky
…and so the worries and troubles of today don’t really matter. They are small, too.
I am trying to keep these things in mind every day. I find when I do, each day can have that vacation feeling, too. Sláinte!
