I have loved this month's theme of faceless selfies, and not just because I really dislike being in front of the camera. I've realized that one can learn a lot more about a person from a faceless selfie than from a "regular" selfie. We've learned that some of you are dog lover's, tea lover's, scrapbooker's and butterfly farmers. Without ever seeing your face, we know you!
Faceless selfies are a creative way of telling our story, and is probably something that we should all continue dabbling in throughout the long winter to keep our photography muscles flexed. The above photo is my faceless selfie. Hot, black coffee (no sugar please), piles of files and paperwork, notes to myself, empty wrappers, well, just a horrible mess that unfortunately is engulfing me. Right now I'm working at the end of my kitchen table because the desk in my home office is so overflowing I had to move to a new spot. I couldn't bring myself to photograph the actual mess that is my desk. Ugh.. Which brings me to some sad news to share.
I have been juggling a lot over the past year, juggling more balls than I am skilled to juggle. Over the past few months, I've been dropping a ball here, a ball there, my rhythm has been off, and of late I feel like I'm trying to juggle with one hand tied behind my back.
Sometimes in life we have to walk away from things that we love till we get a better grip on all the stuff of life. This will be my last post here at FOL . I am so blessed to have been a part of this group, and so unbelievably blessed to know all of the women here at Focusing on Life. I consider each of them a friend for life. It's been a joy getting to know all of you too, through your kind comments and photos that you've shared. Thank you.
No, life doesn't always go the way we want it to, but even throughout my stress and turmoil, I know that I am a lucky woman in so many ways. My FOL sisters have told me that if there comes a time that I can collaborate with them again, I am welcome to do so. I am keeping that warm thought in the back of my mind as I say so long, for now.
