    Dressing up your Motivation- How to Make Anything More Meaningful

    A short explanation

      I'm up, I'm dressed, and headed to work filled with dread and loathing for the day. Something needs to change, how do I make each day into something more meaningful?   Try taking some quiet time just for yourself first thing in the morning. Get your coffee, your oatmeal, or just sit for a bit.  Really you can do this at any point in the day, just take a few minutes ("bathroom break"!) and sit and think about what it is you're dreading or why you feel less than enthusiastic.   Think to yourself why am I doing what I'm doing?  Usually why we're doing something is for a selfish reason, and it takes a lot to just acknowledge that and not to lie to yourself. For example,  I'm up today because I have to go to work, I'm going to work because I want money, I'm drinking coffee 'cause I like it, or I'm helping someone because I want them to like me.  Get to the most basic motive of why you are doing what you're doing.   Next, in your mind take your reason for doing what your doing to the end of the day, picture yourself just about to fall asleep, you can no longer work–you're too tired, you can't get the person to like you–you're too sleepy, you can't make money anymore.  What type of impression or day would you like to have had?   Picture your day and the people around you during that time, how will you doing what you're doing help you in the long run–how will it help them?  I went to work today and I really got to help a lot of people, I was able to help them find the things that they needed and I made money so that I am able to live in a nice place and eat food that will aid me tomorrow so that I can help more people.  Wow, I'm sure glad I had that coffee this morning! I might have been mean to my co-workers without it, and that could have really ruined their day and mine.  Or you could say wow I'm glad I didn't drink that coffee today it would have kept me up all night and made me anxious and mean both today at work and tomorrow!  I went and helped Gracie today, hoping that she would like me, why do I want her to like me?  I feel like if she likes me I could offer a lot to the company and my opinions would be heard and therefore I would be helping everyone a lot more.   After you picture what type of day you want to leave behind, get up and go do what ever it is you were picturing.  Not only will you find that it's easier to do the task at hand, but with your motivation dressed up you will find your day to be a lot more meaningful.   Readjust your motives–it will help you to understand why you do the things you do and ultimately help you to be a better, more balanced, and more meaningful person.

  • Behind the Photo Shoot Adventures in Modeling

    Behind the Photo Shoot-field

    First off, none of us are professional models, secondly we all are rather shy, thirdly we all work a ton of jobs to live where we do…and fourthly this was a family job that consisted of my sister, cousin, partner, and two rowdy dogs.These things together made for an interesting combination of photo taking and fun.   Colorado had had unusually warm weather that month, especially for Silverton where it doesn’t ever really get above 80 degrees. That said, of course the day we could all get together to do the photo shoot the winds changed and it seemed as if winter were on its way again.   And of course there we were standing still in strapless dresses, sheer gowns, and tank tops trying to smile into the camera even though it was freezing! It was actually quite fun, kind of like when you are giggling as you try to plunge into a cold pool and get used to the water.  We would pose for several minutes, and then sprint to put our parkas on, throw them off again and pose once more. An adventure indeed.   Thank goodness my sister Kelly, or Kippy, brought bags and bags of shoes and accessories and made us photo ready.   However, the real trick was relying on being ourselves and acting natural in order to capture the best photos.  By the end of the day we let the clothing inspire us, going on whims, such as running through fields, climbing fences and enjoying being together and feeling great.
