Leaving a Photo Legacy

We put off so many important things like creating a will or organizing our most important documents for easy access at the end of our lives. My work as a photo organizer is to make photos easier to find. It is especially important that it is organized in a way that it tells a person’s full life story. All of one’s photos come out at the end of someone’s life and most times it’s the family that has to frantically pick out what photos to use in the newspaper or display at a life celebration (if they’re having one).

The only person that truly knows your story is you…

What’s your visual life story look like?

Celebrating his Presence and not absence

Today, I choose to attend a Life Celebration of someone I didn’t know except through stories mentioned today by his wife, children, and friends.

This is the 2nd funeral or life celebration I’ve attended this year. I am very aware that there seems like a reset button that I consciously press within me that grounds me to the truth of my own presence here on this earthly plane.

I need to start my visual, written, and audio legacy…

Taking care of my 21 grams

I am not afraid to talk about death. Everyone’s physical presence will expire one day and I think people forget about that. I’ve read articles about the “soul” weighing about 21 grams through experiments conducted by Dr. Duncan MacDougall in 1907. People are still challenging this theory.

Since 2013, I’ve had major mindset shifts and epiphanies taking place mentally, physically, and especially spiritually. I’ve started to meditate again which brought me to a full awareness of my world around me. To challenge and question my “BS” belief systems, I became open and receptive to the living spirit of truth.

I could go on about my story, but to stay focused on the main subject in the beginning of this post, I’ve learned the simple truth of my own life that I had to tell myself…

“Don’t be blind and take care of the things that you cannot see.” Your mind, spirit, soul, thoughts, your consciousness…

That’s all for now. Thank You for reading.

Re-define what it means to love and be loved in-return.

If you’re not able to fully accept someone for who they are and have rejected a loved one for their decisions, you’ve emptied your empathy bowl and a deeper connection with that person.

For when someone shows up in your life to show their true and authentic self, are you going to deposit love or withdraw and show hate?

Up since 4 a.m. Good Morning everyone! =)  

Just experienced a young couple arguing in the parking lot of the grocery store I’m at. I’m in the car at a distance and can tell its an argument because the girl is in the car and the guy is outside, looking down at her, hands are flaring up and I recognize expressions from my experience of being a photographer and observing human expressions.

One thing that’s making this experience happen for them is that they’re not making time, effort, or energy to understand each other.

When there is no love , there is no gratitude. When gratitude exists, there is love with understanding.
