I have to say I am a little in awe. Especially seeing how negative I was feeling earlier in the year. It seems that it’s not as hard to turn things around as everybody thinks. Certainly there has been a lot of hard work to go along with the positive thinking. I am not enlightened enough yet that I can manifest things out of thin air at will, but I am working on it.
A few months ago I was ready to give it all up, put photography back in the “hobby box” and head back to Sydney for a nice regular office job.
I am glad that I didn’t.
This weekend I spent a few wonderful days back in my old stomping grounds around the Dandenong mountains and in the Yarra Valley working on a big project that will be taking up a lot of my time over the next 3 months. I asked the Universe for an abundance of work and here it is. Even when I was waiting and doubting, even after all the false starts I still had to train myself to be positive and to believe that it was inevitable, and here I am.
It’s not easy to stay positive when we feel like we are paddling against the current. But the key is to always remember our power. We can do this by constantly reminding ourselves of our successes and forgiving ourselves for our failures. Easier said than done hey! But it’s precisely the process of self examination and recognising each time I allowed myself to slip in to doubt that made me so able to change my thinking and alter my reality.
So I found myself sitting with my brother, enjoying a free Bombe Alaska (one of my favourite foods ) followed by a hot chocolate the size of my head, in the sunshine, in the place I grew up in, thinking about how all the things I wanted to do in my life, despite the detours had never really been in doubt. All I needed to do was figure myself out, and the Universe took care of the rest.
