Seven Day Nature Challenge – 1

I have been nominated by fellow blogger, Cee at Cee’s Photography to participate in a challenge called Seven Day Nature Photo Challenge.  Cee has a detailed photographic eye I admire, and a gifted talent I envy (all in a good way).  I love to see picturesque treasures through her eyes.

Although, it has been awhile since I have provided daily posts, I gladly accept Cee’s nomination to continue the series. 😀

To take part in the challenge, I’m supposed to post one photo per day for seven days, focusing on anything from the natural world.   Each day I should nominate a new member.

To start  … I would like to nominate Mama Cormier.

If anyone who follows me would like to be nominated to participate in this challenge, please contact me or leave a message in the comments …  I will be delighted to nominate you.

Here is my Day One Nature Photo.  ENJOY!!

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

In this amazingly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we would a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

Our culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves. Yet, it is not possible for all of us to be above average at the same time. Don’t we usually know of someone richer, more attractive, “more together” or successful than we are? Even if we discount the material aspects and consider the more spiritual facet, don’t we know of those who seem more at peace, more aware or living in the moment. Even when we do manage to feel a strong sense of self-esteem or self-confidence, we are not able to consistently hold on to it. For most, our sense of self-worth bounces around like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling strongly tied with our latest success or failure.

In an effort to eliminate labeling ourselves as “good” or “bad”, and clearly accept ourselves with an open heart … to treat ourselves with the same kindness, caring, and compassion we would show to a good friend … I would like to incorporate more self-compassion and self-kindness in my life.

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.

If any of my readers are interested in joining the nurturing, I applaud and welcome you to do so … the more the merrier!!
