I’ve got a bone to pick with you.
Miss Sadie Lou has no problem keeping the best toys for herself. Miss Stella may have most of the size and strength around here these days, but Sadie Lou still has the power.
Weekly Photo Challenge and Sunday Stills Challenge
Signs of Fall
These two different challenges ended up being the same topic this week. At first I thought this would be a ‘no-brainer’ and easy to do. I figured I would have my post ready and posted by Sunday night. That is what I get for thinking. All week I have tried to find content that would fit the challenge and I found nothing. Absolutely nothing. Then when I quit thinking about it and over-analyzing every ‘scene’ I tried to organize in my head, this little guy showed up. I opened up my back door at work and stepped on the deck for some odd reason, and then turnedright back around and started to walk back inside. Then it hit me. That is my ‘Fall Challenge’ photo. I had not seen a fall photo in my head all week, gave up, and there it was. One little leaf on my deck.
Once I let go of trying to find that perfect photo shot for the challenges this week, one fell right into my hands, or on my deck really, and on the same day this is what I noticed out my car window. I had come to a stop sign on a drive I make at least twice a day if not more and was running through all of my ‘To Do’ lists in my head. I was feeling frustrated that I had let so much time slip away for the photo challenges this week and still only had one shot. Here I was sitting in the middle of a huge corn field, surrounded literally, and I had not a clue. Then it hit me. I was actually sitting in the middle of my other challenge photo.
Then there is the very obvious. Talk about sitting right in front of me. Miss Stella Rae actually looks like fall. If you think about the coloring of her coat, all of her golds, reds, and rich browns, she is fall. When she is racing around like a wild~child, the sun hits her just right and she shimmers all these beautiful colors. How did I miss this one all week?
Maybe there are times when we need to let go of our challenges, literally forget about them and quit chewing them into little pieces in our mind. Maybe then we will find a solution, that needed answer. Actually it may find us if we are willing to let go. Sometimes we can be lucky enough to have answers fall right at our feet when we quit being so focused on finding the perfect solution. We need to accept that we need an answer or solution, and not perfection. When we are open to seeing what is around us, and not focused on finding the perfect solution before us, possibilities are really everywhere.
