I sometimes struggle with building up the motivation to go outside. This can mean that I end up at home a lot, even when I know it’s a nice day outside and that it would be nice to go for a walk.
Recently I spoke to ubu about this and through talking about what I enjoy, I decided it would be a great idea if I could use my camera, so that I had a specific reason for taking more trips out into the community.
That’s when the fun really started. I went out for a first few walks and found many things that I wanted to snap, as well as many places where I wanted to have my picture taken. This quickly developed into a passion. When I had my first pictures printed I realised how good the images I had taken were, and that I could go about making a scrapbook to document all my findings.
So now I find I am going out more and more. I want to see all kinds of new places so that I can capture them with my camera and then write a short piece of information whilst there, to put in my scrapbook when I get home.
Now I have my new hobby I want to be more active, and I want to go to as many places as possible. I am motivated and inspired; two powerful feelings that will inevitably lead to a more fulfilling life!
