Ask the Photo Business Coach: What Should Photographers Be Thankful for?

Tweet [1]

In my last couple of installments of “Ask the Photo Business Coach [2],” we’ve discussed issues such as photographers who complain all the time [3], and how to stay positive in a negative environment [4]. On Thanksgiving, I thought it might be nice to take a step back and focus on the things we can all be grateful for.

That was beautiful, and so true!
I have attempted, all of life, to remember each day, upon awakening, remember all those things in my life for which I am grateful...and there are many; three beautiful, intelligent, healthy children (now grown), an interesting job, a good mind...when, at 47, I struck down with a devastating disease, it was this attitude of gratitude that helped keep me sane in an insane situation.
I watched things, the things I had always counted on, disappear; my job, my nice place to live, my security...and yet, my children still loved me, I could take photographs, and now, without a job to go to, I make that my career!
I found a husband who lived in a paradise on earth, so ended up in a better situation, after 10 years of struggle and hardship, than I had ever been in before...and I do believe it was all due to that attitude of gratitude.
I still have the disease. I always will. But somehow with all of life's blessings heaped upon me, how can it matter?
