Dear YOU!

Just Before Sunrise ... Good Morning Halifax

I thought you should know that if I were to sit here and describe how truely amazing you are, it would take me a lifetime.

Your accomplishments, the obstacles you overcame, your unique story! Your hopes, your dreams, your fears… it is all beautiful and perfect. I love it. I love you. You are worthy and you are inspiring. Thank you. No really, Thank you.

No matter how great you think you are, you are selling yourself short, for you are worth more than you will ever know.

You are the highest form of love. Thank you.

Love,

Jenni

What is Positography?

So I have this facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/thec4c
And I recently made a website: http://www.thec4c.com/
Basically, I want to keep doing freelance photography/film/design and use it to make the world better, so half the profits go to charity. Also all services are by donation, you are provided for!

Positography is a new service I am developing at the moment. It was inspired by an overwhelming burst of joy-inspired creativity two weeks ago, the day I learned that Jason Mraz was coming to perform in Whistler (major day-maker for me).
First some background info… Basically, the reason I love doing photography is because I believe that everyone is beautiful, for beauty is a state of mind. I love looking for the sprinkles of inspiration and loveliness and finding them in everyone I meet. Pink has this awesome song out right now called “Fucking Perfect” and the chorus really speaks to me and what I believe in… “pretty pretty please, don’t you ever ever think, that you’re less than, less than perfect” … there is major awakening happening with people around the world realizing how amazing they are right now and I want to be a part of that.
Positography combines endorphin releasing techniques like laughter yoga, physicality, sillyness, and affirmations with photography. I think that if people feel amazing and know how excellent they are that comes through in photos. So the idea is basically to bring out the best you, and capture that, to share it with the world : )

Interested? Let me know if you have any other questions, I’m still developing it and defining it : )

I believe in me

Hey. Read this out loud.

This post is just to say that I believe in myself.

Like, honestly.

I am amazing. I am so talented. I am beautiful. There is nothing I can’t do if I set my mind to it.

The next time someone doubts me, or causes me to think I am anything less than perfect, I will remember that I believe in myself. And then I will tell them that I believe in them. Because I think sometimes we all need a little faith.

The next time I doubt myself, or start to think I am anything less than perfect, I will remember that I believe in myself. And then I will tell myself that you believe in me. Because I think sometimes we all need a little faith.

The next time I doubt anyone else, or start to think that they are anything less than perfect, I will remember that I believe in myself. And then I will tell them that I believe in them. Because I think sometimes we all need a little faith.

ACKNOWLEDGE YOURSELF.

ACKNOWLEDGE YOURSELF.

Give yourself permission to acknowledge yourself. What are you not appreciating about you? What are you afraid to say?

Yesterday I was at a workshop and as it ended we randomly acknowledged the other participants. As we were doing this I was reflecting on my experience at the workshop. I like to think back and look for areas I can improve after I complete an experience. It isn’t an inherently negative process by any means, I am looking for opportunities to be more awesome. However I think we all struggle with negative self talk. On this day, I was thinking about how sometimes I don’t communicate clearly. I was noticing how sometimes I figure out what I want to say only though saying it, and when I first start talking sometimes the meaning gets lost because I am not clear myself on the best way to share my ideas. It was so strange for me though because the woman that acknowledged me, specifically spoke about how well I articulated myself and the value she found in the questions and comments I shared.

It is so ironic when other people acknowledge us for things we have not acknowledged ourselves for.

This reminded me of the great SuperForest post that SF Mathew made about the Leaders Causing Leaders conference. In their speech (go view the post to watch it, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) the Engelhart’s talk about how you can create other people. By recognizing and acknowledging things in others, even if there is not evidence that these qualities exist, we can grow people. I think it works the same way with negative things, even if these is no evidence of something, hearing it enough will make it true for you…

I’d never thought of applying this logic internally. What if, instead of trying to improve things, or change things about our selves, we simply acknowledged ourselves for being the things we are trying to cultivate internally. Perhaps we would naturally grow as a result of the positive acknowledgement.

For example, lately I have been working on my spacial awareness. I noticed that when I believed I was coordinated and aware of my environment, I did not have issues with spacial awareness (parking lots can be scary!).

I suppose this is how affirmations work. Interesting.

ACKNOWLEDGE YOURSELF.

Give yourself permission to acknowledge yourself. What are you not appreciating about you? What are you afraid to say?

 

Abundance Cheques

As I was creating an invoice today I came across this website talking about Abundance Cheques!

The Abundance Cheque

The Abundance Cheque

Writing abundance cheques is a method we can use to manifest more abundance in our lives. They are written within 24 hours after a New Moon. The next date and time of the New Moon is at the bottom of this page.

Surprisingly, you really don’t even need to believe that the cheque will work when you write it. You will however be amazed at the results, as you will see increased abundance in your life, in some life area. It is not always financial, but certainly in an area that you need.

Pretty cool stuff. I love Abundance!

The first of many

I was taking the bus yesterday and we passed the most wonderful sunset. It made my day and inspired the colour pallet for this creation. May it be a gentle reminder.

Also, if you wish to know how to smile so that even the blind can feel it, Yoko Ono has a great guide here.

Enjoy : )
