I want my blog to be a happy place (and I really hope it is!), but I also want it to be real and honest – within reason of course. With this in mind, I’m not going to pretend today was a wonderful happy day. It wasn’t. It still isn’t. I have struggled today. I’ve felt alone today in a dark place.
Today, I made the decision that I need to tell a little more of my story on my blog so that my readers better understand me, what I am dealing with every single day, why I began this blog and what I am striving for. Look out for an upcoming post which I have decided to call ‘Min Unplugged’. Well that’s my planned name at the moment. It may change if I get some other brilliant epiphany! So far that post is just a bunch of words rattling around in my head. It is going to take me quite some time to write it, because I have to be careful about what I say and because it is going to be very draining and difficult to write.
So on to today’s photograph. I chose to photograph this shot because of what in my mind it represents. The dark around the edges is me looking out from my dark place. All that green in the background is the whirlwind of life – responsibilities, hurts, worries, people, noise and so on. The brilliance of colour in the plant in the foreground – that represents my hope, my lifeline and my anchor.
I’m grateful that even on the darkest of days, I find my colour anchor.
Today I’m linking up with Six by the Bay’s Thankful Thursday
