Focus On Life Week 11~ The Possibilities Are Endless

I am realizing that I have been writing here only on Fridays to put up my photo of the week.
Am going to put a positive spin on that and say that at least I have THAT to blog about...else I would not do it at all for a long long time! Am going to try posting more, but am thankful to Sally for hosting this, it keeps me in touch with you at least once a week!

So this time the prompt is POSSIBILITIES!

I have been reading about quite a few folks on my FB groups saying they are stuck in a rut...either a bad work situation, bad relationship, or some other thing that they are not happy about.

I had been thinking about them last Sunday when I saw this patch of sunlight on my dining room floor. After a lot of miserably cloudy days.



The patch of sunshine said: You only need to step outside, the possibilities are endless! And the best part is there are no bars holding you back, except the ones in your own mind. So be brave, and make that change. A whole new life full of exciting possibilities...the ones YOU want are waiting for you out there!

This photo actually puts things truly into perspective. Its dark inside and bright out there. As black and white as it can get!

And now onwards to Sally's blog to see a whole lot more possibilities that I would never have thought of...

    1. Thank you, Tanya! It was SO good to see that sunshine streaming in...at a time I was feeling low, it was actually quite uplifting!

  2. Beautiful idea behind your post: I hope you were brave and went to enjoy the sun!
    I have 2 comments about your picture (beside the fact is is gorgeous): (1) you have unbelievably clean floors and (2) I *love* your sheers: so delicate and elegant!

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment on the photo (that its gorgeous)
      The other two...the camera is lying! I had not vacuumed there in a very long time. Long enough that I cannot tell anyone how long!
      The sheers are a plastic protective cover we put on the wood table :)

  3. Oh you are so right! What a great shot you caught the moment with. A little sunshine at this point goes a loooooong way around here. I'm gonna choose some sunshine just as soon as it stops snowing again, next week, I'm sure.

  5. Very nicely worded, Kashmira and the photo that you have framed has that deep feeling too. I love it. I was reading Twyla Tharp today. Here she is saying ..Instead of making a to do list let's make a possibility list and be creative.

    Haven't finished the whole book but it is interesting. I missed all these prompts from Sally's as I was in India and did not have access to my computer. Any way...will get back to track soon, I hope.

    1. I know! I am one of those that get depressed without sunshine. I can actually FEEL a difference in my mood after the daylight saving change!

  12. I LOVE your photo! Would be worthy of hanging on one's wall I think for how it makes you ponder the possibilities.

    1. Thanks Lori :)

      The "curtains" are actually plastic table cover that the hubby bought against my wishes (i didn't want plastic, he just wanted to protect the table) Will tell him they are getting compliments :)

  16. I had a difficult time with this assignment--needing more direction rather than an open-ended theme. It seems you figured it out thanks to that patch of sun. Great post!!!

  20. I just love this picture. It really does look as though it is beckoning you to go out and play. To free yourself so that bars you have held in place will be washed away.

    1. Thanks Shaiha! Yes, it did, and I was dying to go outside. Only...that I had to stay in and cook lunch and then clean the whole house for a very important dinner guest the next day. BUT...the sun is shining again and tomorrow is another new day :)

  21. Beautiful post! Your insight is empowering -- the bars are only the ones our self-limiting thoughts create, and they are but illusions. The sun and light and shadow in your photo is powerful art photography. Gracias!
