Kids make art. This little one was enjoying creating art at the 2014 Elmira Street Painting Festival.
For the first time I am running a Small Business Saturday sale. This is a great opportunity to purchase some art and support a small business. Art is great for many reasons. One of those reasons is that it makes great gifts including as a gift for yourself. This is the biggest sale I have held to date. Get 50% off all orders $100 or more today only. Use coupon code SMALLBIZSAT. So today is your only day to take advantage of this sale and support local art. You can find photographic prints to order at KRNaturalPhoto.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and had lots to give thanks for. I hope everyone has a happy holiday season. I know I am planning to. I am looking forward to spending Christmas with my family.
It is only impossible until you do it.
This is the lesson I have been learning throughout my life both personally and professionally.
The biggest obstacle to my success and accomplishing things I never thought I could is my own mindset. If I think I can’t do it I can’t. If I decide to do it I can do it.
I love to hike and frequently hike locations like Watkins Glen State Park. I sometimes see people running the trails there and I think I could never do that. Well guess what? Today I did it. I went on a group run hosted by the Southern Tier Running Club. We ran the south rim trail at Watkins Glen State Park. I never thought I could and now I know I can.
Never thought I’d run for fun and exercise: Now I run regularly and have run 5k’s, 10k’s, a trail run, and a half marathon.
Never thought I could be a vegetarian: Now I have been meat free for over a year.
I never thought I could sell my photography in a gallery: Done.
I never thought I could be a published photographer and writer: Done.
I never thought I would have my own gallery show: Done.
These are just a few of the things I have accomplished that at one point in my life I thought I could never do. Once I changed my mindset about each individual goal and decided to do it I was able to succeed. Now I am trying to push myself to accomplish even more that I never dreamed of.
