Finding My Mental Happy Place

People ask me how I’m really doing.  I’ve been toying with writing this post for a long while now. 

Since I lost Rob I’ve been searching for something that makes me feel passionate. Something I can enjoy and look forward to. Apathy really took hold in my life. 


I thought getting back out here and traveling in my tiny, rolling home would do the trick but I was wrong. 


I’ve tried different hobbies like metal stamping and painting. While I enjoy those things the supplies are bulky and heavy and I just don’t get all warm and fuzzy about dragging all that stuff out. 

If you are a regular reader you know I like to take photos and I take a lot of them. 


Recently I traveled here to the hill country of Texas specifically to photograph the wildflowers. 


I’ve fallen in love with photography all over again. Dare I say, I feel like I have an eye for it. 


The best part is I’m feeling that passion for something again. 

The RV park where I’m staying is owned by a cattle rancher. I talked to him for a bit today and he told me where to go for more photos. I feel like I hit the insider information jackpot.

  1. Thank you! I want to take pictures of all of the above. Basically I love landscape photography of all kinds. I'm heading to the beach on Sunday so expect to see beach photos!

  2. You do have the eye, beautiful photos. The flowers are so pretty. Now narrow it down to what do you want to take pictures of. Like waterfalls or barns. Lighthouses or birds. Then you can drive someplace off the beaten path for extra special photos. Maybe all the national parks in a state.

  3. Well done finding something to be passionate about. I know it has been said when one door closes another opens … sometimes it feels like the door was slammed shut and it takes a long time before you see a crack of light to move towards. Glad you "found your crack". Your pictures are awesome. Love seeing all of the flowers.

  4. I am glad you have figured out that you have an incredible eye for photography. I love your photos as much as I loved seeing Rob's. That is something that I am sure he is guiding you with. Keep taking pictures, they are awesome!
