Two 365 projects

About 3/4 the way through my 365 Photo project I started another 365 project….
Since I was struggling with pretty much everything, and was not too positive about anything, it was suggested that I start writing down one thing a day that I was thankful for.
This ‘365 of Thanks’ project has not seen the light of the public…. Only about 3 days into it I came to see that it was going to be very hard and VERY personal.
I’m really happy to say that I am up to day 221, so have stuck with it. Its been surprising how hard its been, finding just one thing that I am thankful for on some days (I think thats simply a reflection of my mental state, which is not up for discussion with you lot!!!!), and its also been surprising some of the things that I am thankful for that I never really give a second thought to most days. (Hence the private nature of the project). So all in all, I think the project has really helped and is showing some small hints of success.

That background then gives you a hint of how surprised and impressed I was when I came across this woman who also was suffering depression and to help, also started a 365 project. She is taking a photo a day of things that she is thankful (grateful) for.

I have only read a little of the blog, but its pretty neat.
The thing that really impressed me was just how personal it is. Unlike me however, she is willing to share that with the public.

For what its worth, the answer to your question is no.
I don’t think I could do the same. As much as I miss my 365 Photo Project, I really don’t think I could do a photo project of what I am thankful for. Some of the things are just not able to be photographed anyway.

Ok, enough touchy feely blogs.
