It’s time to Start Challenging Perceptions!

Hello and welcome to my first ever blog post!

At the beginning of this year I decided to dedicate my time to helping change perceptions using the art of photography…

Over the last few months, I have researched, I have photographed, I have spoken with lots of amazing and wonderful people and heard so many fantastic stories to tell which I am going to share with all of you over the coming months. I thought what better way to do that than in my shiny new blog!

There will be lots more blogs to come for all of that but first I’d like to say this:

Love,Kindness, Compassion, Just Being You….all things in my opinion that are far more beautiful, important and valuable than beauty on the outside!

Las week I went shopping with a friend, upon entering a well known clothing store we were greeted by a lovely welcoming, smiling face with a bubbly, bright “hello, how are you today?” to which we both naturally replied, “hello, great thanks how are you?” Shocked, the young girl looking back at us said “thank you, you’re the first people who have spoken to me all day”! Not only did this sadden me, I began thinking…

When did society become so closed off? When did people become so busy that something as simple as stopping and saying hello takes too long? What if we started challenging society’s behavior? What if we shared a message of kindness and compassion rather than negativity? What if we stopped
living life through computer or mobile phone screens and actually went
outside into the world and made a difference?!

Some people see problems I see only challenges…So let’s do it…join me in sharing positivity and kindness and inspire others to do the same. Help others just because you can and spread kindness like wildfire with the Flux Photographic Kindness Challenge…

Throughout November and December I will be posting one kindness challenge per day via my facebook page (link below). I’d love it if you could join in, post pictures and comments to let me know how you get on and please spread the word.
