One of the great educational gems in life are a little something called podcasts. My goodness, how much I’ve learned from podcasts. I have subscribed to a variety of podcasts ranging all topics from homeschooling, photography, motherhood, minimalism, and more. I’ve especially learned some great tips for my photography business from podcasts.
I discovered Brooke Schultz through Instagram last year. Her warm and bubbly personality won me over. She’s a devoted mother who paints a beautiful world of tenderness and love through her film art. She started the Heartful Podcast and shares wisdom on living the creative life.
On my morning walk this week, I listened to her episode on Unboring Writing, and it quickly became a favorite episode of mine.
Nuggets of wisdom I gained from it:
Our most powerful tool we have that sets us apart is our words. Our words are vitally important and we all have something to say. Though we are photographers, we also can be wonderful writers. I’m in the process of learning and becoming a better writer, and I believe in the power of words fully.
What is the point of your website/social media platform? Simply this; to add value to the world. What can you do to improve the world? Man, I just loved that! That’s what I hope to do; is to always bring something good and uplifting to the social media ocean. There is so much yuck and darkness shared daily. What can I do personally to share beauty and truth? To enlighten others? To inspire others to find their path of creativity and joy? That is my goal, though I am far from being amazing and good at this blogging, social media presence thing. Yet, I love having my little world here to share good things. I love taking pictures, but I love tenderness and inspiration more.
Check out the podcast episode, and be inspired! No matter where you are in life, I believe we are all writers, and have important things to say. Have the courage to show up and share something beautiful with the world today.
