It's all in how you choose to see things.
The day could start out cloudy, for instance.
That perfect light evading you.
Someone is nervous.
Or uncomfortable being photographed.
(I get that one a lot.)
In the moment, how do we turn it around?
By seeking the positive.
This holds true everywhere in life.
When I greet my clients, my heart is open. I am genuinely happy to be a part of their lives, and they get it.
We smile. We laugh. We talk. Sometimes we get silly.
The result? Real moments. Human connection. The stuff you can't fake.
It boils down to camaraderie, really. We're in cahoots.
And an instant support system is created.
The other day I had the pleasure of working once again with the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation.
As many of you know, the Foundation is dedicated to sharing the teachings of the The Great Rabbi, Yisrael Meir Kagan, and "Torah's timeless recipe for building a world of compassion and harmony". The photos in this post were all taken at that shoot, to illustrate their message of positivity, unity, and respect.
We are reminded to keep this philosophy with us at work, on the playground, in the home...everywhere.
And when life throws us the inevitable curve-ball, we stick together. We help each other. We bond.
Problem-solving? No problem.
I've got your back.
Besides having an amazing day working alongside fantastic people, I got to spend some time at Yoffee, known for their superb coffees and delectable desserts.
My only regret?
Not having the time to sample any of it.
But I'll be back.
