Disconnect to Reconnect
I will be going on a photography workshop in the Utah Badlands this week. I am excited to be exploring a new section of Southern Utah – an area that I continue to feel drawn to in a deep way. I hope to return with many new scenes to share with you all!
(The shot above was taken on a previous photography trip just outside of Zion National Park and was taken by Seth Hamel of Enlighten Photography - who I cannot recommend more highly)
I think it is so important that we each recognize the activities that feed our souls and give ourselves the time that we need to engage in those activities. We all have so many responsibilities in life, and we can often feel torn between work, family and G-d. Often our own needs and our own self-care are the first to fall by the wayside. Despite the tremendous value in being there for others, we must also remind ourselves that we are worth investing in as well – and that this investment will pay dividends in our ability to sustain our own growth, and to create and maintain meaningful relationships.
I want to thank my wife, my parents, in-laws, and kids for helping out so that I may have the opportunity to nourish my soul and reconnect by disconnecting.
