December Reflections Photo Challenge
3. Best Day of 2014 - Today!
I have a calendar hanging in my office. It's pretty small and has been with me through 2014. It's titled TODAY Is Day One and is the artist series featuring photography by Carl Christensen. It starts by telling me along with a gorgeous photo of flowers that look almost like cotton, "Life is what you make it." In January, in a beautiful turquoise and peach background, it says "Choose Happy." For February, featured near a row of old mailboxes likely on a country road somewhere, is the reminder to "Surround yourself with love." March - my favorite month of the year for many reasons, with a row of bright pink flowering trees, the calendar tells me "You are extraordinary." In April, above a field of beautiful wild flowers at dusk, it says "Be mindful of others." May, in a nest with one small bird egg - "Today is day one." June brings a field of sunflowers for summer and confirms that you should look around since "Beauty is all around you." For July, "Time cannot be hurried" is placed high in a blue sky above a pier on the ocean. August is a carnival scene with "Play is the secret of lasting youth." September is a big huge dandelion and above it, instructions to "Dare to dream." October is a photo of an old camera (Clack brand/Made in Germany) with the words "Revel in the beauty of each moment" above it. November is an old truck with New Jersey plates sitting in a wooded area asking us to "Remember to be who you are."
So for day three's reflection, I choose TODAY as the best day of 2014 as I'm reminded by the months that TODAY is everything and holds possibilities and beauty and breath and the opportunity to be whatever you want to be and choose whatever you need.
To your TODAY and all that it holds,
