Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary because it means you’ve made a difference.
It is easy to be thankful for the good things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings. ~ Author Unknown ~

Well, if you didn't believe in the power of socail media/networking, incredible stories like this keep popping up and show the power of the internet to open up the world. Obviously, there is good and bad that comes from this, but this is one of the most amazing stories I have seen. In a world that seems ever dominated by negative media, it is nice to see the positive stories like this one. I would have thought this would have seen more press. If you haven't watched the video link above, it is well worth the time to hear this incredible story.

I made one wrong turn moved from midtown recently and ended up on a dead end cul de sac. Drove to the end, made the turn and came face to face, well face to car grille, with a dozen wild turkeys blocking my path. They looked like they wanted to jack me (I swear one was wielding a cueball in sock) but I revved and hauled ass.

- LOVE these Ashley! You did a great job! I feel like I notice a distinct difference in your images when you shoot film, and not just the color. There is just something so special about film to me and the fact that it forces a photographer to really think through every shot I think makes a tremendous difference. My favorite pictures are the 3rd and the 6th but I also think all the shoe photos are fabulous. To the no editing -amen, glory hallelujah. Right there with you on that one.Fabulous job, can t wait to see more of your film photos!
