Our Thoughts are Forming the World

Photo by Lola Rain

Feeling lack of inspiration, I’ve been given the advice to find my “blog voice” and topics. I’ve been really focused on my photography, and when I have no new photos to blog about, I don’t blog. It’s a struggle for me because I’ve always felt like I wasn’t the strongest writer. My spelling is atrocious and my grammar is questionable, but I’ve come to the realization that I’m not getting graded for my work. Sure, people are going to judge what I write about or how I write it, but at the end of the day I give myself a grade.  I’m judging myself! This brings me to the something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately…
We are what we think. We attract things to ourselves by the way that we think. If I think I’m a bad writer, I’m going to be a bad writer. Another example,  If you think you aren’t going to find parking in a busy area, guess what, you won’t. If you have a positive attitude about parking and one the  drive over there, guess what, you’ll find the parking spot you want. I told my friend Ryan to so this last week and guess what, he got the parking he wanted!
I’m slowly becoming a firm believer that you are what you think.  You attack positive or negative energy towards you by the way that you think. If you believe that you are going to become an artist, broker, fashion designer or a millionaire, it will happen. It could happen in 10 minutes or 5 years. You just have to believe it. This leads me to finding out what I want. I guess you could say that I’m not really sure yet.  It’s hard to focus on positive thoughts when you don’t know what you are striving for. As of this moment, I’m still trying to figure that out so I can start walking down the right path.  I know that I want to start on more photo projects and take more mini vacations, but I want to think more long term.
What are you goals? What keeps you positive?
