I've been wanting.....

lot of times when I start thinking about new dreams... about bigger dreams. I start replaying all of the times I've failed. 
I start thinking about how I'm still not where XYZ photographer is. 
And I start thinking that I'll never book another client... EVER. 
Things can get pretty dramatic. 
And yet... still I dream. because the thought of failure doesn't compare to the thought of achievement. 
I've always been the type to never want to settle for mediocrity...  
I think even despite the crazy life I had growing up... my parents taught me two things that have shaped me 
My Mumma taught me.... 
Always want more for yourself -- never settle for less than you deserve. It's up to you.. Earn the best life for yourself. 
And my Daddy taught me..... 
Never want so much more for yourself that you forget to be grateful for what you already have.... for where you're already at. 
And so growing up with divorced parents -- really... truly... helped shape my OWN beliefs. 
Beliefs that I can one day pass down to my kids. 
I never-ever want to 'just be'.... but in the same sense -- I never-ever want to be wanting so much that I forget what it's all about. 
I gave myself a GUT check yesterday. 
I love it when my Psychology Degree turns on ME... I start analyzing myself. 
Like I said, things can get pretty dramatic. 
So.. this morning. 
Instead of wanting to book more mentoring sessions... 
And instead of simply wanting.... 
I want to give. I want to be grateful for this blessing I've been given. 
I honest-to-goodness didn't wake up with this intention... but after really thinking about myself and my business when writing ^ up there.... 
I've realized that I've just been 'wanting'... wanting more more more...
