I have been taking a lot of time lately to try to improve myself- which is all encompassing of my relationship with my family and others, my faith, and, of course, my business.
I love being able to see where each of these areas of my life intersect and lend to the building up or breaking down of the other.
The most recent example of this happened just this week. I read a talk to uplift and nourish myself spiritually. Just a day later, a family reached out to me to take their family pictures. That very family showed me- through their story and by their smiles- how to use the concepts- gratitude and finding joy in the journey- I had learned from reading the talk.
So- I thought the only way to properly document my time with this beautiful family would be to share bits of the talk along with a few pictures from our session together.
“Nothing is as constant as change.”
“The lives of all of us, of course, go through similar alterations and changes. The difference between the changes in my life and the changes in yours is only in the details. Time never stands still; it must steadily march on, and with the marching come the changes.”
“I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not.”
“…There is no tomorrow to remember if we don’t do something today.”
“Stresses in our lives come regardless of our circumstances. We must deal with them the best we can. But we should not let them get in the way of what is most important—and what is most important almost always involves the people around us.”
“Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.”
“Our realization of what is most important in life goes hand in hand with gratitude for our blessings.”
“Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend … when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present—love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature, and personal pursuits that bring us [happiness]—the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience heaven on earth.”
I am feel both blessed and grateful to know this family. Thank you for choosing me and for teaching me- even though you probably only set out to do the former.
