The Power of Intention

Last weekend's photography workshop focused on all the basics you would expect, with the addition of some psychological and metaphysical elements. Something that's hot right now is "The Secret" which is nothing more than creating the life you want by (1) deciding what you want and (2) concentrating only on that, not about what you don't have. The power of intention.

I followed those steps some years ago when I went from a comfortable corporate salary and a job that made me crazy, to a self employed artist. Amazingly I made a good living the very first year, and it's just gotten better.

Why I am talking about this now is that in the past few days the subject keeps coming up for me. First last weekend, then something I saw on TV, then a conversation with someone I hardly know, then with a designer I just met, then last night with a dear friend.

All this leads me to believe that it's time for me to look at my own life, and evaluate yet again where I'm going and what I ultimately want for myself.

Things are changing and I want to be ready.

What great advice and insight...I will have to rethink a few things I'm doing, but I am going to try this out. Thank you for these reflections...and good luck with your changes! :)
