OLW 2016 | April + May

Now that we are well into the middle of May I wanted to share both April´s and May´s prompt in the One little word class. In April Ali prompted us to ask a question relating our word every day. I choose the question: What made you feel alive today? Rather than writing down one thing every day, I chose to write a list of 37 things that make me feel alive. Some tried and true and some I´d like to try.

Here is my list:

1. Stargazing
2. Getting my hands in the dirt
3. Laughing really hard
4. Taking walks in a cool forest
5. Dipping my toes in the lake
6. Swimming in the lake
7. Trekking
8. Doing something and succeding
9. Intimate moments
10. Doing random acts of kindness
11. Being outside when it snows
12. Standing at the beach when it is really windy
13. Zip lining
14. Being goofy and silly
15. Saying yes
16. Planting my garden
17. Harvesting my garden
18. Picking blueberries in the forest
19. Seeing a beautiful sunset
20. Making a bonfire at the beach
21. Getting up early to watch the sun rise
22. Turning a day of misery, to gratefulness
23. Taking a photowalk with the DSLR
24. Going to a wildpark
25. Eating really good food
26. Painting
27. When all my senses are in line
28. When I feel independent
29. Listening to really good music
30. When meditating really works
31. When my legs hurt from too much walking
32. Reading a good book
33. Pulling over for a photo
34. When a story just pours out of me
35. Moments when I feel like I belong
36. Going to new places
37. Planning to do fun things

And this is how April looks in my album.

May´s prompt was to try and capture our word through our cameras. This is clearly something that comes easy to me ;) 
I went through my camera card to choose a few photos that spoke to me and just used them Which means that I didn´t go out with the intent of taking new photos, I chose photos I had already taken. 

This is how I put the prompt together in my album. No words (other than that quote) because I wanted the photos to do all the talking. 

Something that stood out to me when I printed my photos, was that most of my "feeling alive" moments are outside. That wasn´t very suprising to me. I feel good outside. 

I´m looking forward to June.

  1. Thank you for sharing! I've been taking lots of photos this month, but just sort of higgledy piggledy. Your pages have helped me see how well they can work. :)
