Staying Positive in any environment

I have been thinking allot lately about how we get to where we are going. And about how important it is to know what you want and not focus on the how.  Trust ,surrender, and staying positive are key living the beautiful life you are meant to live.

When I was waiting tables on Sunset strip at Cabo Cantina.  I worked there forever! It was a crazy crowd 2 for 1 tequila shots the whole thing.  It was a very loud, crazy, drunk, place to spend 40 hours of my week.  I remember feeling like a victim and thinking there is no way to be positive when this is my life.  Well, I needed the job and I also needed to find a way to be positive so I could find my way out of that job.

Its like in photography, you stay focused and wait for the perfect moment.

If you are working a job or living in a household that is negative you cannot fall into the victim trap.  You must look at the challenge as an opportunity.  Feed yourself with positivity and protect yourself from anything that doesn’t serve you.

About one year after I made the decision to stop being a victim and start being positive I left Cabo Cantina.  When I look back now I wish I hadn’t worried so much about the how because it really distracted me.  Your only job is to know the what.  Know what you want and have the courage to ask for it, trust that you have it, and keep the faith.  Its a daily practice.

Stay Inspired!

    Have a beautiful day!

  2. Thank you so much for this post today. I decided last week to take my photography to the next level. The goal is to be able to provide my family with a comfortable life by doing something I love. I’m tired of doing jobs that I cannot stand. Not sure how I’m going to get there just yet, but after reading this I will be trying to focus more on the goal and practicing, practicing, practicing! Love your blog and I may be slightly obsessed with your Youtube channel =]
