How I photographed the same red cabin in different ways over the years

It was in August 2013 that I by accident stumbled upon the red cabin and its surrounding lake. I assume the location has been photographed before my first attempts at capturing its inherent beauty and charm. Owing to the fact that the lake is a drinking water reservoir for a whole community I am very […] The post How I photographed the same red cabin in different ways over the years appeared first on DIY Photography.

The Secret of Joy

I remember being a young employee called into my boss’s office, worried I had messed up. I sat down in front of his large executive desk as he closed the door. I was frantically going through my memory to find anything I could have done wrong. As he sat down in his leather chair, he asked me in all seriousness, “Why are you so happy all the time?” Taken aback, I wasn’t even sure what he had just asked me. “Happy all the time?” I asked. “Yes,” he said a little frustrated with me. “You always have...

The 5 Best Books for Achieving Your New Year's Resolutions

Be the change you want to see in 2019. How is it only mid-January? I feel like this is always the looongest month of the year. Since it's right after the holidays (post-holiday syndrome is real) and the coldest time of the year, January is downright depressing, making it a great time to read some inspiring and motivating books.Plus, if you slacked off on your New Year's resolutions after the first week, the end of January is a great time to get back to work on those goals and solidify them into...

Creative Cockroaches, Standing Out + the Truth About Your Best Creative Work

A short while ago I had the great pleasure of taking the stage at the Seattle Interactive Conference with my dear friend and creative superstar Cal Mcallister (Founder, Wexley School for Girls + Paper Crane Factory) for a very pointed conversation on inspiration, unlocking your best creative work, and how the eff to stand out in today’s noisy, crowded market.  Hint:  it’s not what you think.

I Will Cling to What I Know

I sat in my doctor’s office awaiting his confirmation of my self-diagnosis. I had gone there because I needed some serious help: I couldn’t sleep, I had racing thoughts, wildly swinging moods, and a bunch of other symptoms I couldn’t explain. I told my doctor all about it, asked for tests, and gave him my diagnosis of some sort of weird early onset menopause. After all my explaining, I told him if I had to come up with one phrase to describe me it was, “It’s like I have bipolar.” Still I was sho...

How Bible Journaling Helped Me Connect with God

I became a Christian sitting on the bottom stairs of our apartment building with the boy I fell in love with praying for me. I felt such a huge burden off my shoulders, a burden I didn’t even realize was there. I felt so free. I felt on fire and so loved. Just two weeks after I graduated high school, I was not only getting married to Jonathan, but he told me just a short time before that he was being called into ministry. Our lives were about to change in so many ways, and I was still such a bab...

Inspirational Speech as a Tool of an Excellent Leader

Great leaders are the ones who empower and inspire action. Today, we are living in the age of social media, our attention spans have been shrinking and we are texting more and talking less. Regardless of all these changes, the power of words remains the same and great speeches are the most enduring legacy of many leaders. Winston Churchill was a Nobel prize recipient, but his three memorable speeches: “I have nothing to offer, but blood, toil, tears and sweat“; “We shall fight on the beaches“ an...

Getting Started with Traveling Ultralight

“He who would travel happily must travel light.” -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry By Leo Babauta I’m on a trip at the moment, and a friend who generously let me sleep on his couch looked at my small travel backpack and commented on how little I travel with: “That’s impressive,” he said. I was a little surprised, because though I’ve gotten that comment before, it’s become normal for me to travel with just a small bag (10 lbs. or less, usually), and I have friends who travel with even less. But then I ...

May He Put You Together

I had a shirt made that says, “The Meds Are Working.” It makes me laugh, and it’s true. When the package came with the shirt, I ripped it open and put the tee on. It fit perfectly. I went upstairs, and as I was walking into our dining room my thirteen-year-old said, “The meds are working?” Oh yeah, I didn’t tell my children I took anti-anxiety medication. So I told my daughter, “I take medication for anxiety, and it’s been working. And I made this shirt so that others wouldn’t feel shame if they...

12 Signs it’s Time for You to Let Go

The renowned psychologist Carl Rogers noted that people are often unhappy because of a lack of congruence in their lives, which is another way of saying momentary complexity blinds us to the simple solutions of life.  For Rogers, simply sitting with a patient and having them talk through their problems, without the therapist leading them or making judgments or giving advice, was the best way for them to let go of their problems.  Rogers determined that when you give a person a safe and supporti...

Learning a Little Courage from Our Kids

They play hockey, these kids. They love the game. They love each other, and with courage. Thus, when their thirteen-year-old teammate kept getting taunted by opposing players because he’s black, these white kids said no. Not gonna take it. He’s our friend, so leave him alone. Cut out the taunts. Stop the putdowns. And with that, something changed. Standing up for their friend, this scrappy bunch of kids from the Metro Maple Leafs in Odenton, Maryland, inspired the grownups — parents and coaches ...
