slow living renew: moments captured

Thanks to all that joined in throughout January and shared their slow living renew moments. It was so engaging to see the different ways people find that sense of renewal. Looking back over the gallery you can see similar colours and tones reoccurring, which I find really interesting. To think a diverse selection of people from all over the world, living in different seasons, can take a word like ‘renew’, and although their visual interpretation is independant and unique, there is also a common thread that connects all the images together. I don’t know about you… but to me that’s pretty inspiring!

Below is a selection of my favourite images that were shared under #slowliving_renew. These moments really caught my eye, and show us just how many ways there are to renew…

To renew – by surrounding yourself in nature

“ Letting your mind drift as you knead the dough, absorbed in the motion of pushing and turning and feeling… There is measure and peace in this.”

To renew – to bring something old back to life, in this case bits and pieces of an old loom

Pop over to Danielle’s blog Hippie in Disguise to check out her selection. I always love to look at the images she has chosen, and see what moments spoke to her.

February’s word is a biggy…  ‘love’. A word that means so much to everyone. Ultimately you could say it’s what we are all looking for, and what we all need to feel happy.

Danielle and myself do hope you will enjoy capturing your #slowliving_love moments throughout February.

We want the hashtag to be a little reminder, to help you to take the time to feel the love that is present in your day. How do you notice the love that is all around?
