Life Lessons

I am slowly working on figuring out where I want to be in life. So many things seem to have gone wrong as the time up until now has passed. I have often wondered what I have done to deserve everything that has gone so astray but, then I remember that everything happens for a reason.

About a year ago, I picked up my little Kodak EasyShare point and shoot camera. I was having one of those restless days when my mind was whirling in a never ending circle of despair, so I decided to take the camera outside and start taking some shots of things that calmed me down and made me relax. I ended up getting some great photos of the spring time foliage and flowers that still inspire me. Since then, I have upgraded cameras and continued to shoot photo after photo of the things in nature that move me, things that remind me of a better time, or just inspire me to new awareness of the world around me.

I wonder though if anyone else has a way to help with the difficult times in life. Are there other ways to help motivate someone to get through the rough patches in the road of life?
