Memory is much the same. It captures one moment from one perspective but often forgets the little details and idiosyncrasies that do not fit the memory. Memories are completely subjective.
There is a lot changing in my life right now. I've chosen to cancel some workshops and focus on my individual clients. I'm chosen to take a little more me time. And I've chosen to release my photography website. I'm making space for something new. I'm opening myself up for an opportunity that I have been waiting for for a long time.
When I look back on this, when I have created a memory of it, I will have a choice. I will have the choice to focus on all that I "gave up" and let go. Or I will have the choice to focus on the space I created. Many times we seems to wait until the result of those actions before looking back and determining if that moment was "good" or "bad". For example, if things do not turn out the way I think they will, my memory could reflect all that I "gave up". On the other hand if things go beautifully as planned or better that memory may become "see how great it was that I made space". But this doesn't have to be the case.
We always have the choice to create that memory no matter what the outcome. I am choosing mine to be that I had the courage to take care of myself and make space. In choosing this positive attitude it will allow me to find the positive no matter the outcome. It is a promise to myself. I am making space for something great.
I'm grateful to make these changes. I'm grateful to spend some extra time taking care of myself and reevaluating. I'm grateful to focus on my wonderful clients. I'm grateful to move forward in a positive way and trust whatever happens is for the best. I'm grateful for this opportunity and for all the opportunities that will come.
What memory will you choose to create of today? What changes are you making and how can you set those in a positive light?
May today bless you with grace. May you find the positive in each situation. May you create beautiful memories. Have a beautiful day!
