Dear readers, dear fans that want to have a wise life and achieve great dreams, I hope you are happy. If not, I would like to make your day a little bit brighter by sharing a thought : what do you want to be at 50, what do you want to have achieved at 50 ?
regularly, you ask me why people always smile to me, why they are always kind, play the game, my game. Those I met, those who are familiar with my work, my posts, my words, my thoughts, my philosophy of life, already know the answer : GENEROSITY.
I don’t talk about financial generosity but about the generosity of the heart. When you understand that you are part of something bigger than your own existence, you understand that all what you do have consequences visible and invisible. Lots of you don’t believe in the “invisible” consequences. They don’t belive that if they do bad things to people, bad things will happen to them someday. They don’t believe that we are all linked, that a consequence has always a cause and that a cause has always consequences.
I often talked here in Style and the City on my believes about the power of “Positive energies”. I deeply believe that there is invisible forces that make people who are in the same level of energy to connect. generosity is an energy, a beautiful, positive energy. I can’t tell you how many time a desinterested act of generosity from me had amazing and beautiful consequences on my life. The latest and the most beautiful ever : my last New York employers want to make me move in New York. definitely. And all started because I offered for free lots of pictures to yound entrepreneur. I never give my pictures for free. But he had a social project aimed to do good and help others. So I gave him lots of pictures for free. I never imagined that it would lead to a great job, working with amazing people and the opportunity of my life to live in New york, and achieve my dreams.
What is the connexion with the smiles on my pictures ?
I quit a well paid job in a female magazine to follow my heart and values. Honesty is engraved in my heart. I couldn’t stand any more the lies of fashion magazines. I wanted to help women to feel self confident, beautiful. TO do that, I knew that my pictures would be an act of generosity towards my improvised models. Because I freed myself form the superficial requests from magazines (and their money), I could focus on capturing women’s natural beauty. And when you start to think like that, when you focus on making people happy rather than using them to earn a buck by selling their pictures to magazines, then, your improvised models feel it , start to trust you, feel more confident and magic happens.
Whatever you do in your life, set your mind like that : “How what I do help others ? How what I do make this world better?” and see magic coming in your life.
Why is she beautiful, why is she gorgeous ? Because I loved her and she loved me back. Have a great day, have a great life !
