Self Portrait: Seizing the Day



Well... here's a super random blog post. I woke up this morning feeling super creative so I whipped out my DSLR and practiced taking self portraits. (Yay for remote shooting!) I especially like Canon's camera app where you can do remote live view shooting. It makes focusing on the subject super easy!!! Anyway, here are a few of the photos I took. I literally just woke up when I took this so please excuse the tired look on my face haha!


While we're at it, let's talk about "seizing the day". I had a really good talk with one of my closest friends this morning and like our usual conversations, we got really deep. We started talking about our purpose, how we "live to die", and other really dark stuff. (Yeah you can say we are pretty weird. But hey this is what happens when you're having an existential crisis hahaha!) Anyway, she said something that made me stop and think. She told me that no one really cares about what you do to yourself or do in your lifetime. We are mostly pressured and influenced by society on how we are "supposed" to live our lives. But the truth is, no one cares because everyone is too busy caring about themselves. So in my friend's exact words, "you shouldn't give a shit". Seize the day and just do you. Stop overthinking about the future and just enjoy this moment. Today is a gift, that is why it's called "present"! (ayyyeee!)


How are you doing? Tell me about a time you've done something brave.
