10 Ways to Capture Comfort

For the October blog circle, our CONFIDENCE Teacher team is bringing you 10 Ways to Capture Comfort!  If you missed last month’s theme on Transition, I encourage you to check those blogs out and read the beautiful prose the women wrote.  Wow, their words AND photos filled my soul.  I can’t wait to see what ten of our teachers show you for capturing the theme of Comfort.

My 8 Details that Capture Comfort

I’m on the road more than home between now and Thanksgiving.  So I thought I would share my 8 details that capture comfort when I travel for work.  All of these photos were taken with my smartphone.  They are more meditative captures for me when I’m feeling a need to land within, even though I am thousands of miles from home.

1.  Favorite Walking Shoes

8.  Moments of Pause.  To notice a lone tree that is standing, even as a storm approaches.  These moments of pause and reflection always bring me comfort.

How would you capture comfort?  We invite you to share your photos on my Facebook Page.  All the teachers would love to see them!
