the garden keeper.

THE COLORS. I had to take advantage of the gorgeous greenery and flowers because it's all going come wintertime! I was meeting up with a friend of mine to say our goodbyes as he was leaving for school when I got this idea. When you get that little voice in your head saying "Wouldn't it be interesting if...", you have to trust it. I had this vision of this good "spirit" that lingers--you don't see him, but you know he's there to clean up your mind's garden and to help you bloom. I figured nothing would be more appropriate than to snap some pictures in a beautiful area before heading out! well, maybe that's just me! but hey, it made for a good time, and I definitely got some great shots in this scenic area.


I'm finding that I'm becoming the biggest judge on myself, as if every choice I make involves me sitting in a court room with a bunch of lawyers yelling at me with everything I say or do. I'm becoming more nostalgic of those carefree moments I use to have before anxiety took a toll on me. A lot of people will make you insecure in life, but I know it's who I am that got me here. I guess I've been feeling weak, really if every step forward I take equals 3 steps back. Only one person understands my thoughts exactly, and does nothing but listen. He works in mysterious ways to keep everything in my life beautiful, from everyday stress to money to people to everything else in life...and because of this, I started making a daily list of what I'm thankful for. This honestly helps me--sitting down for a good hour to think about nothing but the good. Gotta give credit where credit is deserved, so I created this image. I hope others can see the message that was intended.
