As I’m writing this post I’m watching one of my favorite TV shows (okay so most people’s favorite TV show) Friends.  It’s “The one with the routine” where Ross and Monica do the “routine” on the Dick Clark New Years show.  I’m literally laughing out loud as Ross and Monica make complete fools of themselves and love this display of shameless confidence.  (Of course I know they get paid to act this out but let’s be real, we all love to think they are our real friends).

I can’t help think about how nice it must be to just let lose, be yourself and have a blast or as they say “dance like nobody is watching”.  Sometimes I have to remind myself that life is to short to care what people think, have fun!

A year ago when I was finishing up student teaching my cooperating teacher bought me the Willow Tree Angel for Courage.  I love this angel figurine because it constantly reminds me to wake up and be brave.

So while I was sitting at home the other day, a little bit bored, I got out my camera and wanted to play with the manual mode.  I got out some candles for colorful lighting and this angel and decided to try out complete manual mode… eek.  Take a look at some I like and let me know what you think!

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.” -Ambrose Redmoon
