Everything But Present

11:00:00


I wonder how often during the day I'm somewhere else. Thinking how I'll get home from work and cozy up on the couch with a cup of tea and my phone. How instead of enjoying a meal at a restaurant to its fullest I first make sure I took enough photos to show it to you on the blog, or firstly added it on my Snapchat story. But I don't always take photos for a reason. I take them because I simply enjoy the process. Collecting moments, botteling them up in this little powerful device called mobile phone. I had a goal to get better at taking photos with my DSLR, but I still leave it at home most of the time to collect dust amongst other things I don't really need. Then again, what is there besides water and food that a human really needs, right? But I am not talking about survival, it's too extreme, and life is too beautiful to look at it that way. Maybe that's why I'm making sure that I capture the smallest of occurrences - to remind myself that the beauty is in the little things. And then on days like today, I go through those photos and remember those moments just like they were a minute ago. It's like going back in time. Here I have some photos from December, it's been three months since then but feels more like three days.

It's all too funny when you think how hard we try to grasp at things, yet nothing serious ever comes out of it. Sometimes it's best to just let it go. And I do like to let go a lot. I like to let go of my thoughts that once seemed so important that I could not fall asleep. Stressing is an enemy of mine, and it's usually because of reasons that seem silly even to me yet I cannot help it. I do believe that one can be his own worst enemy, and sometimes I think I am mine. I hate that I am not present, I hate that I cannot live a day without my phone. However, I feel grateful for having lived happily without any phones or addicting devices all my childhood. When all that mattered was playing outdoors with your neighbourhood friends on long summer evenings. I am not nostalgic or angry, just thoughtful. Not present again. I am a compilation of feelings which are trying to go different ways and dragging me along them. I am sure you've been there, we've all been there. But I don't worry about this mood that I'm having today. It's just a ramble like any other, which come and go without having a big significance in my life. They just happen.

With Love,
Bri

  4. Same as you, I like to capture moments from months and months ago and look through them when I'm feeling nostalgic or saddened by an event that happened. It's great and all, but sometimes when you see a certain picture that has a sad feeling to it, it sucks. But that's life, and it's okay.
