EUDAIMONIA!

Pam Johnston Photography     I stumbled across this word recently and was intrigued with its meaning. Eudaimonia means the  fulfillment of our potential from within our souls, our passion, the thing that when we are operating in it, we are so engaged, we forget time, and even our own selves. For me, it is looking through the camera lens. Everything disappears...I don't notice anything outside of what I am doing...I even forget myself, which, oddly, is the most freeing thing of all.

     So, here is my example of one of my "Eudaimonia" moments! Once, while sitting on a park bench taking pictures, I wanted to get a wider angle on my subject, so I kept scooting back on the bench, taking a photo, re-evaluating it, and scooting back more, and even more in order to frame it just right...well, the bench eventually ran out and I landed directly on my behind in front of ALOT of people.  So, sometimes, getting lost behind the lens works, as in this case...I went immediately back to taking pictures so I could hide from my embarassment (after checking that my camera was ok, that is!). 

What's your passion and are you pursuing it? If not, start today!
