Photographs are wonderful, but they do not replace experience.
We look, admire, and maybe dream when we see photographs.
But what good is inspiration if it doesn’t create movement in life?
There are so many ways to see photographs of the world’s beauty: friends’ vacation pictures on facebook, blog posts by world travelers, pins on Pinterest, and of course Instagram, which somehow makes everything look awesome.
But these second-hand experiences fall short of their purpose if they don’t inspire us to live and move through the beauty ourselves.
Nature is a wonderful conduit for reminding me why life cannot just exist through photographs.
It surrounds me and explores me almost more than I can explore it.
Try standing on a mountain and keeping your breath inside of you.
You can’t do it. The mountain takes it.
Looking is great.
Feeling inspired is great.
But don’t forget to experience the world you’re inspired by.
That’s what Colorado taught me last weekend:-)
What are you learning from experiencing the world these days?
