On Saturday, Global Free Hugs II took place. The day was amazing and I am receiving pictures from all over the world. Here in Chicago, I along with several others were capturing the event through the view finder of a camera. The ability to zoom in and truly focus on your subject gets easier and easier for the novice photographer. The pictures are clearer and more vibrant. Wouldn’t it be nice if our lives were like a camera — Easier to live and clearer and more vibrant every day? Now I am not a photographer, but it seems to me that the importance of an amazing picture over an average one is focus? Well, I believe this holds true in our lives as well.
When you want a picture of a beautiful smiling baby, you don’t focus in and take a picture of a crying baby. When you want a picture of a beautiful sunrise, you don’t focus in and take a picture on a foggy morning where the sun doesn’t appear until 10 am. When you want a picture of a happy couple, you don’t focus in and take a picture when they are having a disagreement. So zoom in and focus on your dreams and desires rather than what you don’t want in your life and your life will be filled with pictures of your wildest dreams.
Quotes of the Week:
“You can’t depend on your judgment when your imagination is out of focus.”
~ Mark Twain
“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.”
~ Brian Tracy
“Our thoughts create our reality – where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go.”

AFFIRMATION: I focus on everything that is positive in my life.
~Taylor Swift and Def Leppard
For the next week I invite you to zoom in and focus on:
Loving your life over fearing the unknown
Enjoying unlimited possibilities over worrying about what is going to happen
Expecting financial freedom over your fears of not having enough
Absolute health over illness
Your perfect body size over stressing about needing to lose weight
Your perfect romantic relationship over the fear of being alone
Your perfect career over the fear of just getting by
Mostly, I invite you to truly focus on your dreams and desires and get crystal clear on them. Sit with them each day for at least five minutes and relish how great they make you feel. Focus on that feeling place while allowing those images to soak into your pores. See each moment of your life as if a photographer was clicking away to capture your essence, so focus on the images you want placed in your memory book (your mind). Focus on love, laughter, silliness, peace, joy, and being connected to the Universe.
Until next week, go capture your life in small and amazing snapshots, just remember to delete the ones that are out of focus!
