Worth - Finding it in a baby picture

You might wonder why the previous post had someone else's baby picture in it. I was planning on adding something about baby pictures specifically, but decided to separate these posts. Also, there were no digital photographs 40+ years ago.

Earlier this week, I suggested you put a picture of yourself on an alter. This idea was passed on to me from Todd Norian, a very heartfelt and wonderful man.

Another photographic technique that Todd used to reach in a little deeper, involved baby pictures. At one of his trainings a couple of years ago, he had the group (40 of us) really look at our baby pictures. Not each others, just our own. Then he played "You Are So Beautiful" and asked us to sing along to our baby pictures. There was not a dry eye in the place.

That same baby picture I used that day, is still on my alter and whenever I feel like giving up or following a paycheck instead of a dream, I look at this photo taken over 40 years ago. How can I give up on such a wonderful and beautiful baby? How can I settle for less? She deserves my best, and I'm doing my best to fulfill that.

Love Much,


Today is the first day of the rest of your life!

I love this idea. Funny, I just spent today carving out a creativity space in my home to feed my inner artist. Was thinking about alters and candles and such...and here you are with a neat suggestion. Thank you!
