Lately I have been trying my best to enjoy being in the moment. As someone who is constantly thinking and planning ahead this is something I truly struggle with. I especially struggle with this while on vacation or exploring a new place. I love taking pictures while traveling, but sometimes I get so caught up in capturing the moment through a photo that I forget to actual savor it while I am there.Luckily I realized this before going to Maine. I told Andrew that I wanted to be better about really enjoying each moment on our trip. Clearly I still took a LOT of photos as evidenced by the posts about our trip (which you can read here, here, here and here) but with each new location and adventure I made sure that I took time to just stop and enjoy where we were.Whether we were exploring the coast, searching for fall foliage, or hiking through Acadia I would occasionally stop and take a few minutes to just sit and enjoy where we were at. Doing so made each day so much more memorable and enjoyable. Realizing what a difference this made on our trip made me realize that I need to be doing this regularly. Whether it is a date night with Andrew, a family celebration, or a new adventure I should be taking the time to really let it all soak in and simply enjoy the moment. It is so important to take time to just enjoy what is happening. No camera, no phone, no thinking ahead, just simply being there in that moment. It isn’t always easy but it makes all the difference. With all of the holidays and celebrations coming up over the next few months this is definitely something I want to apply to my daily life and I hope you do the same!
