This blog is a photo journal of everything I am doing in the world. I feel strongly that every photograph is a representation of the person who took it, and I want you to feel as comfortable with my photos as I do with yours. I take photographs of myself and of my family, but I also like to share the world around me through my daily photos and other interesting photographs that I find.
I have been making and posting my own lifestyle photos for a little while now, and I’m just starting to get comfortable with it. My photos are the way I am now, and I hope you will find them to be just that, too.
My favorite part of making these lifestyle pics is that they are all taken from my own bedroom, and I have the privacy to do that. All of the photos are taken by me, which I think is important because I love to use the camera to capture other people, and I would have no idea what to do if someone asked me to take their photos. I also like to do this in public for a little bit so that other people can see what I look like in my own home.
I know what you’re thinking. You’ve been reading this blog for so long, and you’re probably thinking “But this is a home, not a blog”. Well, while that may be true, and while I am a very private person (though I do occasionally blog about my day at work!), in my house there is no privacy at all.
I think that most people who have ever lived in the house that they are commenting on probably have a slightly different opinion about this. This is one of those life-changing decisions that can make or break a person’s life. I have a house that is very big, but it does not feel like home (especially with all the extra stuff in the basement). However, like so many people, I am trying to take my own advice here.
My parents were the first ones to move out of the house I grew up in. My sister and I have had to move out of that house for a few different reasons. I think the main reason is that the house now feels less like home to me. Like, I’m actually excited to be at a new house with bigger and better things in it and not so much with the stuff that makes me feel like a slave to the landlord.
It seems like a lot of us are trying to simplify our lives, but I personally think that it really can take a toll on our own mental health. We’ve all been in an “Lifestyle Peeve” situation, so you might be in a bit of a mental funk right now.
The thing is that in many ways, the Lifestyle Peeve is the same thing as the Self Peeve, which is the state of mind where you are so used to doing things your way that you are paralyzed by fear. Many of us who struggle with this state never get better with it and so go through a few cycles of trying to make it go away, only to revert back to the habit of doing things the way we always did them.
It’s a tough habit to break, because it is so ingrained in our psyche that we can’t even turn it off. So instead we go through a few more cycles of trying to make it go away, only to end up back in the same state of mind.
This is why taking photographs is so important. It is very easy to go through a few cycles of “why is this the way I always do this?” before we can fix it. Photographing is a great way of turning the habit around. If you look at a portrait, you see your face in the photo, and you immediately see what you look like. If you see your face in a photo, you are 100% sure that this is who you are.
