...I choose love.
You may ask "But Mindy...what does this have to do with photography? Isn't this a PHOTOGRAPHY blog?" WELL...welcome to my world. Sometimes I deviate from what's expected. ;) (you'll learn that when you book a session with me! :D )
There's so much sad news everywhere today. Death, Anger, Hate, Tragedy. People multiplying those things with their own agendas and beliefs. I'll let you know where I stand. With love.
I choose to love. I choose to help those that I possibly can. And when I can't physically go help someone rebuild their life, I choose to smile at a random person walking down the street, and say "hello, nice day, isn't it?", tell a stranger they look absolutely lovely today, or encourage someone who looks discouraged with their day. It's a small drop in a BIG ocean, yes...but to that person, it could be a beautiful, much needed drop of life.
I choose love in all it's glory. All of the beautiful colors of humanity, the million shades of life. Love comes in all forms, shapes, and sizes. And for gosh sake, who am I to condemn who YOU want to love? I don't. Love is love, and love is wonderful - and so much more fun than hate or fear.
