Passionate for nature, life, writing and sharing, this site is mutually dedicated to my three favorite vehicles through life - Photography, Writing & Teaching.
Having found my way to a path of purpose, my courses are on systems that allow you to find YOUR ultimate path.
For the left brain to allow the right brain to flourish, SYSTEMS!. One of my favorite tools is Evernote. This app has allowed me the peace of knowing where all things are at, so that I can focus more on where I want to go.
Moving from a left-brained management position (as an INFP in an ESTJ job, no less), it took more than strategy to plot my transition.
The most important thing I did before starting is to figure out just what on earth I was here to do.
This resource was priceless!..
Have you ever made a difficult decision, to maintain your integrity, that cost you money in the short-run?
I’ve done this enough to qualify myself as “the victim” more than once. Despite the friendships or great paying jobs I took “the High road”.
I’ve had multiple experiences, where declining opportunity (for ethics) delivered PRICELESS gains, including an amazing wife (Imported from New Zealand) In a nutshell, here is my favorite evidence.
Have you ever sat at your desk, so overwhelmed by the "#1" priorities on your massive task list that you just sat there numb? I get it. I've done it (okay - do it), and created a diagnosis for it. The question is, where did it start - better - how do I stop?
Have you ever looked around you at every item you own and wondered of it's origin? The building you're in, the furniture you are sitting on, the computer in front of you - even the mail application that you're reading this from.
Every one of them was first a thought. It had an invisible life that came to fruition to experience this life.
I've been spewing thoughts on paper for about as long as I've called myself a photographer. So why on earth did I feel guilty writing?
A clever distillation in a conversation with a friend helped me to get over it. (and HOW!)
This is what I discovered, and hope that it will benefit you just the same...
So many hats, so little time. Committees, sub-committees, kids, spouse the yard. OY!..
Sound at all familiar? Well, you're not alone. Even some of us boy humans are feeling it too!
We truly are the sum of all that we've ever been, yet none of us are merely what we do. We are much, much more.
As I write this, I am (to most people) a photographer. Truth is, I am NOT a photographer. (by vague definition of someone that takes a lot of pictures). So - what am I?..
“For 12+ years, I was hired to be at this event, thinking I was the lucky one - paid to hear what people were paying to learn. I would photograph her screens as reminders of what I was hearing while I worked - thinking I was ‘getting it’.
The real experience came when I instead paid to be there. I had no idea what I was missing out on by not participating in the full learning experience! There is a difference between hearing great ideas, and applying them as you do during the event. All I can say is - INVEST IN YOUR DREAMS!..
Mary’s MASTERFUL gift of teaching is at the core of the greatest shifts in my life…
