Don’t Be Shy. Run Towards Your Big Vision.

As I was walking to work one day this week, I saw this cute Corgi on the street. At first he was shy. He watched me with half of his face hidden behind the wall. But as I walked closer, his excitement overwhelmed him. He ran out of hiding to say hello and invited me to pet him (so soft!).

Sometimes that’s how we are with our Big Visions. Shy at first. Testing the waters. Not wanting to make a commitment. But here’s the important part. The excitement. When we get SO excited about something that we just HAVE to do it, or learn more about it, or share it with others, we need to let go and run towards it.

When you feel pulled towards something that makes you go “Oooooooh!” Move towards it. Get closer. See what it’s all about. For example, I often take photos on my walks to and from work.

A color will catch my eye and compel me to take out my phone and look closer.

Sometimes I decide that it doesn’t look as great as I thought it would, and I keep walking.

Other times, halfway through editing it on Instagram, I’ll decide that the image or moment isn’t drawing me in anymore. I discard the edits and delete the photo.

But a lot of the time, if I stop to photograph something I feel inexplicably drawn to, the photo turns out even more beautifully than I could have imagined. And that makes me happy. Very happy.

Big Vision experiment: Move towards what excites you, attracts you, or draws you in this week.

All photos by me.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
