Do you love yourself for who you are as a person, or for what you do?
As I go out with my camera to photograph how people relate to each other through their body language, I find many of us judge our success by the applause of our audience.
In other words, we do our best work in life, and give our best performance, when we judge ourselves not by results but rather by hard work that builds fruit in people.
For example, when I create a new art photograph my purpose is to share truth, hope, goodness and love, and not look at the sale or the people who may like it or not.
We should applaud ourselves when our life and work solves a problem, fulfills a need, serves a constructive purpose, or lifts others to a higher level.
This to me fosters true happiness in the person who we are.
Enjoy your day!
