"I don't feel like it!"

This is one of the most detrimental mindsets I've been battling lately. Not only does it make you sound like a 5 year old brat, it's also a proclamation of entitlement. It basically says "I want my desired results but I want it to be easy to get to emotionally and physically". 

That never happens. Never. 

I hate my fitness training. Hate it. But I love my new body. I love watching my progress and the development into a me I haven't seen in years. So I attach the idea of being good looking to the workouts. It's the only way I'll do them. This way no matter my mood I will always love my body so I will always feel the urge to train. 

I don't know why this took so long but I am just now applying this thought to my business. 

If you don't know of what I do I am a photographer, but some days I am a lay in bed all day and not do anything-er. Somehow misplace my motivation on an every other day basis. But the manipulation of thought that I have with my fitness has finally seeped into my photography. I have recently made a promise to myself that I will only make photos that match my current mood. Feeling depressed? You'll probably see a night time shot or an angle where all the shadows look haunting. Feeling joyful? It'll be all about the sunshine, or I'll catch a good moment within the crowd. Regardless, I'll still be creating and honing my skills. The blender of emotions that I have in my head won't stop me from building something others and I enjoy and I hope you learn to blend your weakness with your passion as well.  

Now I hope you're having a great patriotic weekend and that you are relaxing but if you honestly enjoy my photos and my articles, I do have a favor to ask of you. Please support me on Patreon. It's where I'll be posting my videos of how I get all of my shots and more in depth articles on my day to day and achieving my goals. It would mean the world to me and there are rewards for how much you support like prints to my shop or even a photo shoot with me. Also if you want to chat, hit me up in the comments, Instagram,  Snapchat (promission), and Facebook

Thank you for making my days count. I truly appreciate it.
