Welcome to my little corner of the vast world wide web! This blog is dedicated to the small things that make life beautiful – hot tea on a cold day, short quotes with a big impact, and capturing the details of life through photography. Starting a blog has been a goal of mine for a while now, spurred by my love for writing. Ever since I can remember I have kept a journal detailing the changes, thoughts, and moments of life that I hope to remember, and more importantly, learn from. After all, life is a cycle of failure, change, improvement, and achievement (with achievement sometimes taking the longest to come). As Winston Churchill once said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Courage is what gives us the strength to rise above our failure and beyond our success to continue the work that we have been called to do – to push towards our purpose in life. And sometimes, that purpose is found in the small and somewhat unseen things – in loving the unlovable, in believing in those who have ceased to believe in themselves, in living life with integrity and purpose. I would contend that true purpose in life is found in the details of who we are and in who we believe we can be – and in having the courage to be, as a friend once said, “the most saturated versions of ourselves,” without fear of rejection or failure. That takes true courage… and that, as Churchill believed, is what counts.
