The magic medicine of the camera.

Sometimes they overstimulate me completely.

The noise, the rowdiness, the fighting, the constant fingers in everyone’s butts. My HSP little heart starts to lose it. After being very shouty (which didn’t work) I pulled out my camera and let them go nuts on the bed while I took photos.

And the camera provided just enough distance. Just enough of a buffer that I could take them in. I could see these little faces with kinder eyes.

It made me remember (again) the magic medicine of the camera.

How it has saved me over and over again- allowing me to be more present, more connected, and able to weather whatever heartache I am experiencing with more ease.

It’s my greatest tool for healing.
It puts me in touch with wonder.
It reminds me of the beauty everywhere.
It shows me that underneath the mess, everything is miraculous.

Will you join me for Elevate the Ordinary this summer?
It starts Monday, June 29th.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
