7 Blues Lighter

Photography by Ink ’em Down

~ Moncy Barbour

Blue’s one of my favorite colors so am really excited to share this as an entry in Becky’s July Blue Challenge!

In case you’d like to hear the inspiration behind the title: I counted about 8 shades of blue (without being too technical lol) in this photograph so ‘7 Blues Lighter’ shows there are 8 shades of blue packed in a single square!

Right Experiences at the Right Time

Your life is colored with a timeline of experiences. Every experience will occur at a specified time in your life. It won’t happen before it’s supposed to and won’t happen after it’s supposed to.

It will occur at EXACTLY the right time.

If you look at Product Development, the product goes through various phases from conception to being perfect. Your life is the same. You go through those various phases to ultimately make a stronger you. So, be grateful that the right experiences happen at the right time in your life.

P.S. Everything here is original. I took this photo, thought of this quote, designed and created this little badge.
