There have been many writings published in attempts to disprove this theory, but we took the time to analyze scientific studies on when and why it might be a good idea to let your immediate will be your guide, and to consider how that can help you appear more confident in your photos.Read More

Father’s Day is a special time that comes around every year, when we get to take a moment to show Dad just how much he means to us. Maybe he taught you how to ride your bike, how to throw a football, or even how to invest. His love and care for you is...Read More

Losing a loved one always brings us sadness, and this loss is no exception. We are all here for such a short time and some souls depart earlier than should be. What her daughter has is her memories and all the photos of her with her mom. Hopefully they will help with her healing process as that is such a young and vulnerable age to lose a parent. The bond between a child and mother is so strong. Our prayers go out to the family and friends- we are sending them love and light. Rest in Peace, Kate Spade! You will always be remembered and missed.
Do you remember growing up in your family home with walls full of family portraits, albums and books filled with positive memories of the love and joy shared between family and friends?

This past weekend, I was lucky to briefly visit my niece and her seven month old grandbaby. One discussion in particular that we had stayed with me. It was a thought provoking conversation about a newborn child.

Ahh the energy of Spring! It’s that time of year when NYC has finally started to see a noticeable increase in daylight hours, and a (near) total relief from winter weather.

How does timing affect our success and the potential to reach our goals?

Often times, when talking about the power of luck, people tend to reflect on moments they found themselves in the right place, with the right people, and at just the right time. They connect theories of chance with purpose or intent, and share how the perfect remedy of events led to some of the most important and impactful experiences of their lives. For me, getting the time just right is simply being as prepared as possible when you are taking steps toward your goals. Your goals may be big or small, continually changing or steadfast, but the more focused you are on those goals, the greater your chances of achieving them can become.

What does it look like to stay focused on your goals? Toria Sheffield at Bustle shared an interesting take on it-- staying motivated.
“...knowing how to stay motivated is so incredibly important when it comes to getting what we want in the long term. And in a world with more distractions than ever before — from non-stop web access to constant texting — it can be all the harder to stay focused and not just give in to what's easier in the moment.”
You’ve got to know what you’re going for, and stay the course. Motivation and persistence will get you to the right time for the right thing to happen, however, having the right skills will also play into the equation. How do I infer that? It’s simple. When we sharpen the skills needed to achieve our goals, we prepare ourselves for the moment we have the opportunity to put those skills to use in the best of ways.

Think of it this way- an artist can only reach the completion of their work by staying focused through the process, and remaining fully dedicated to their goal. When an artist sets out to create a painting, they must be familiar with the type of paint they want to use, and they must also know how to work the right colors into the painting. Sometimes it might be hard, there may be distractions along the way, and it might take longer than expected, but when the opportunity comes to present their work at an art gallery, they’ll only be ready if they stayed the course, kept their motivation, and trusted the process.

Maybe you have a goal that seems difficult or even impossible to reach. You must keep going. I know that at times it can be difficult and sometimes discouraging, and you think maybe you should change directions, however, you must continue to move forward and keep that focused end result in your mind. Making small steps towards your goal on a daily basis can keep you accountable to yourself or if you are lucky enough to share your goal with a friend or a partner, that can also help keep you accountable and on track. With that said, you must also stay relaxed and positive when thinking about your end result. Know in your heart that it will happen at the right time. Be prepared. The right time will happen and if you are prepared with your skills the final step will be to take action when it appears.
Where are you today, and how did you get there? Everyone is on their own journey, and it’s important to appreciate each moment as a lesson for whatever is to come.
