Picturing the Possibilities

"Picturing the Possibilities" started out as a phrase that my friend/business partner and I used as a marketing tag-line for our new business Picture This! Fundraising. I thought it was a cute, catchy phrase. But I've realized that it has become more than just a clever saying, it has become a new way of thinking for me.

I wouldn't say that I am a negative person (and I hope my friends would agree) but when it comes to trying new things or starting new projects I do have a tendency to think about what could go wrong more than what could go right. I think it is because I am afraid of failure. Aren't we all to some extent? But now, thanks to a new business adventure and a business partner/friend (who is tenacious, bold, and creative), I'm excited to take chances, to ask for things and I'm not worried that the answer might be "no." These days, I'm more inclined to ask "Why not?" instead of "Why?"

I feel like I am on a personal and professional growth journey. It sounds corny, but it is true. I'm learning so much each day--how to start a business, how to build a blog, how to take a better photograph, how to make a 3 year old laugh (the key is potty humor). It has been an amazing experience!

To anyone out there that is contemplating trying something new, I urge you to give it a go. You never know who you'll meet, what you'll discover, or what you will learn about yourself.
