Karma

I've received several emails this week from wonderful people thanking me for giving them encouragement and inspiration. Makes my heart smile to know that I've inspired someone...Melissa you made me teary eyed with your email. I'm so busy but I do try to take time to help others when I can.

OK I have a little story....When I was just getting my business started I emailed another photographer and expressed that I loved her work and asked if she had any advice for me...well that ended badly. She was rude and basically told me I sucked and would never amount to anything. Yes, Very sad woman. Would I like to email her back today? Na... her bad karma will come back to bit her in the ass..lol. Anyways I swallowed my pride & wiped my tears and moved on and thought to myself {I'll never ever treat anyone like that}. It took me along time to ever even think about approaching another photographer but a few years later I meet my wonderful friend Tine & she has become such a huge inspiration and friend. Love ya T! I'm rambling but I just wanted to post this to say thank you for your emails and I'm happy if I've helped you in any way. I'd also like to thank the people who help inspire me everyday.

Karma...you send out good things in life, eventually good things come back to you, maybe in a different form, be it comes back. Same with bad things you do to others as well. It all comes back to you somehow.

Too bad about your bad experience with another photographer. That would have been quite a blow.

I feel the same way about helping others. It’s just networking, being social, and not being a jerk.
Besides, a rising tide raises all ships.
