Looking Back to Move Ahead

In 2007 when I was working with a web design team to create my ServingSuccess site, I provided photos to be included on the home page.  I felt the photos represented different emotions that people go through as they transform and develop.  I had taken all the photos submitted.  One was of the rays of sun coming through some gray clouds.  I really like that photo.  When I took it, the scene was in front of me as I drove through the entrance of the development I live in.  The web designer recommended that I not use that photo.  She felt it did not show hope and might make people feel sad.  I did not use it on the site although I did have note cards made using it as the cover.

On my walk yesterday, I was prompted to turn around and look back.  I don’t know why I did that. This blog is what I saw.  I took out my phone and took a photo.  I then continued my walk imagining a life where the clouds were behind me, there was still lots of road, and the sun was still there to send its rays of hope.  I had an incredible walk and a very productive day.

Dr. Success Challenge:  Look at the photo.  Think about what it is telling you about your life right now.  Write down your thoughts and allow them to be.  No further action necessary.
