Friday Photo

Today's Friday Photo comes from Tanzania National Park.  Today I started another hypnosis training course. I was reminded of how scared I was the first time I hypnotized someone. I remember how nervous they were! Today fear never even enters my mind. Whether it's learning a new skill or solving a problem that has been with you for a long time, hardly anything warrants the fear we have.

Today's Friday Photo comes from a late April day in Chanhassen, MN - out my front door where there is supposed to be a sidewalk. I choose to believe and see that it is spring - though Mother Nature has tested my belief with 18 inches of snow.

Today's Friday Photo comes from Honolulu, Hawaii. You are on your own path, learning lessons and growing in the way that is right for you. You have control only over yourself and your own feelings.

Today's Friday Photo comes from the David Shelnick Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi. This little guy's mom was found butchered and he was left to starve.

Having to do something takes willpower and it weakens with use. Wanting to do something purposeful is easy and joyful. If you are questioning your "Why" on something, perhaps it's time to let that one  sink to the bottom of the lake.......

Today's Friday Photo comes from Rift Valley, Kenya. I caught this picture of three sleeping elephants that were in a herd of about 35. It didn't last long as the young ones in the group started playing and kicking up the dust. A perfect match with this quote I heard on the radio this morning. Where are you choosing to play today?

Today's Friday Photo comes from comes from Monarch Beach, California. As I stood on this cliff I realized that whatever life gives us, we somehow manage to persist. Only after we've made it out the other side do we realize how true this quote is.

Today's Friday Photo comes from Tanzania, Africa. It was as if these beautiful creatures were forming a roadblock, perhaps the male was just protecting his herd or perhaps they are just curious about us. You can interpret it in many ways, but all could apply to resistance to change...........
