I don't know if it's just me or if it's common to be forgetful all the time. After shooting with Shara in Surry Hills, I jumped out of the car - too preoccupied with goodbyes and see you laters - and forgot my beloved, and always neglected, camera under the seat.

But... after a week of being pathetic and not taking photos, I took cues from one of my favourite TED talks ever, learnt to embrace the limitation... and shot with my first ever owned SLR. To be honest, it's not that much of a constraint but ever since my 5D - I outgrew it a little. In general, I think it's a beautiful motto to live by. Instead of constantly worrying and obsessing over things we don't have or can't afford, we should (warning: cheesiness ahead) appreciate and make the best out of what we already have

Don't forget to smile at the sky for being beautiful day-in-and-out or at yourself in the mirror, learning to love yourself - flaws and all - and letting your true soul shine. If you're anything like me, a little coffee in the morning goes a long way in making me more appreciative ;-)
