I learned so much about butterflies from photographing them in the gardens. Their design is not just for beauty but for their survival. They blend in with the flowers that they tend to feed off so birds flying above them are more likely to mistake them for flowers then for lunch. Some have beautiful blue wings that when flying look like the sky but when they land they close their wings and land on tree bark because the outside of their wings look like tree bark.
Sometimes waves comes crashing upon us yet we stand strong and prevail. The most that it does is mold and shape us into a stronger version of who we are.
1. Have you realized yet that you are the author of your own life or do you tend to blame others when things go wrong with your life?
The problem with blaming others when things are not going your way is that you can't control what others think or do. You can only control how you respond. When you blame others for your problems you give the control of your life away to others. When you take responsibility of how your life is going,then you can make changes, corrections, and new choices to create better outcomes for yourself. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE CHOICES.
2. Do you have a road map as to where you want to go or do you just bounce around from place to place?
I know that every business coach tells you that you must set goals but they don't always tell you how to do this. I would never set out for a drive from San Diego to L.A. without first checking out the best route to get there. My memory is not the greatest so once I research the best route, then I would write down each step of the drive, where I turn left or right, which freeway, which exit to take, etc. It is the same with any goal. Many people set goals but they don't map out how to get from point A to point Z. Map out your success.
3. Do you have a lot of goals that you have set for yourself only to find that you can't fit them into your schedule or even worse, when you think of them you go into overwhelm?
-Darren Hardy, editor of Success Magazine,reported that he sets no more than 3 major goals for himself. He finds that when he sets more than that, he rarely accomplishes them. He also said that it important to pick one behavior that will help you accomplish that goal and try to make this new behavior a habit. Tracking this behavior daily to make sure you practice the new behavior gives you a better chance of creating a permanent transformation. More goals does not equal more success.
To all the teachers and to those who simply teach others on a daily basis by simply being who they are, I want to share with you a profound aha I had today.
Life has been my teacher. Sometimes I learn from it and sometimes I stand in my stubbornness and deny myself the lesson.
When I do learn something that changes my life in a positive way, I like to share it with others.

Flourishing Waters by Margot Carrera
It is said that what goes on in the outside world is a reflection of our internal world. So my question to you today is, What are we thinking or believing here in California that is reflecting an epic drought? How can we relate that to our own thoughts and feelings? Water in necessary for our own survival. It is the largest per centage of what our bodies are made up of. We know that our thoughts can effect the shape and structure of the water molecule. So please help me understand. What is the epic drought mirroring to us? Thank you for your comments.

Specialties: Nature Photography, Living Art, Digital Art and Design, Healing Arts, Feng Shui. Margot Sherry Bogdanow-Carrera’s lifelong dedication to nature photography, her preferred art form for portraying this Earth, the planet unto which we are born and bound to preserve, is evident throughout her website: www.CarreraFineArt.com. Nature, in return, provides us with everything necessary for the spiritual journey we take while we remain on Earth. Too many of us, preoccupied with our daily struggle to survive, have lost sight of that promise, forgetting that if we had cared for Earth, there would be no struggle. Margot Carrera’s avowed insightful and artistic intent is to remind humankind of their connection to and with Nature, to remember that every one of us are – or should be – devoted stewards of this Earth. One can readily observe her special bond with every object she photographs and how this inspires each memorable image. “When you look at my website,” says Carrera, “you will discover at least one singular image that speaks directly to you and helps you to recall your own beautiful connection to Earth."
