That is exactly what my camera, computer and photoshop elements program provide me. Although I suppose you could argue that I had to spend money to buy all these things then there is the electricity that is needed to keep the computer running and charging my batteries for my camera. I however would counter with the fact that I use electricity for many other things in my house AND I've had a computer longer than I've been involved with image therapy. Image Therapy, I like the way that sounds....lol
Taking pictures, editing and creating something new on my computer helps me to forget about all the daily stresses and problems. I can get lost for hours doing any of these three things. If I'm out walking with my camera, I start taking pictures and the rest of the world just seems to fade away. It's just me and the images I see through the lens. When I'm editing or creating a new scrapbook something or other it's quite possible that the house could burn down around me and I would be unaware. That may be carrying it a bit too far because the fire would undoubtedly shut off the power to my computer but you get the idea....lol
I highly recommend that everyone find what it is that they enjoy and indulge themselves in a little free therapy every day.
This is just a little something that I got from a couple of therapy sessions.
