Day 88: Advice I would give to my younger self!


Day 88: What advice would I give to my younger self? I have never thought about this until now. Here is a list of my advice to my younger self:

  • Don’t believe everything you hear.
  • Scrutinize whatever you hear.
  • Do what you love.
  • Treat others like yourself.
  • Stand up for yourself.
  • Stand firm on what you believe.
  • Celebrate all of life’s victories.
  • Learn by your mistakes.
  • Never quit.
  • Take chances.
  • Keep your friends and family close.
  • Always tell the truth.
  • Follow your passion.
  • Live and love fully.
  • Trust in God.

It is good to look inward and evaluate what we think are powerful truths in order to understand ourselves. Let me know what advice you would give to your younger self if you DARE! LIKE OR COMMENT if you would!

Day 84 of 365: Best Quality about Yourself


Day 84: What is the BEST quality about yourself? I would have to say that my BEST quality is STUBBORNESS! I guess it could also be considered my worst quality, depending on how you look at it.

The meaning of the word is “dogged determination not to change one’s attitude or position on something.” That is me in a nutshell. I am a Taurus after all! I have had some letdowns lately, but I am not going to quit now. My Dad has a sign in his room at the nursing home that reads, “never, never, never quit.” Dad has had several strokes and one of my sisters lovingly gave him the sign for inspiration.  I have seriously taken that as my mantra!

When you enter the art world as I did, from the world of nursing, it is full of creative competition! It is TOUGH to find your niche!!! I ask myself everyday about what my niche is. I photograph all things and I have trouble narrowing my focus to something that other photographers are not doing. I am having trouble finding the answer to this question, “what is my niche?”

Needless to say, I am STUBBORN and am going to continue to do what I do until I hopefully have that “ah ha” moment.” I have a quote I would like to share that made me laugh, “Sometimes I feel like giving up, then I remember I have a lot of mother- – – – – – –  to prove WRONG!!!”

I dare you to LIKE or COMMENT on what your favorite quality about yourself is!
