Sunday Morning Reflections are always about something other than photography, and as I was sitting here thinking about what was on my mind, I realized how happy I am. While I miss a few family members who turned out to be judgmental phonies, I simply love my life. Thinking about my journey over the last eight years led me to a couple of great quotes by two well-respected writers.
Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won't like you at all.
Rita Mae Brown
I urge you to please notice when you are happy,
and exclaim or murmur or think at some point,
"If this isn't nice, I don't know what is."
Each mistake you've made in your life has been just as important as the decisions you made that were right. Everything you've done has been a building block helping you to grow and become a better person, artist and business owner.
So, enjoy today. Cherish those special people closest to you and just stay focused on being who you are. Shakespeare's line of, "To thine own self be true," couldn't be more important or accurate. Hug the people you love and for that one special person, make it the full eleven seconds!
Wishing everybody a terrific Sunday and a day filled with happiness and as Kurt Vonnegut put it, "If that isn't nice then I don't know what is!"
