Explore Each Experience

Power Living Ansel Adams Quote Card

As Ansel Adams said: “Every experience is a form of exploration.”

How do you take in life? American landscape photographer Ansel Adams grew up in San Francisco and fell in love with nature very early on. Producing beautiful images of the American West, especially Yosemite National Park, he was acclaimed for his attention to the transitory quality of light in each scene. His goal was to reveal the beauty to others not necessarily how the subject appeared in reality but how it felt to him. He created many images of the Sierra Nevada always finding new aspects to capture perceiving “the delicate and persuasive complex of nature.” Like Ansel, explore each experience. Slow down right where you are and take it all in. These moments will never come again. Tune into every aspect of the Present. Absorb the beauty of your surroundings. If it seems ordinary at first, go a little deeper. Notice how it makes you feel. Pay attention to the people around you as if they were simply parts of the Living Universe (as they really are) without any judgments. Keep your eyes open for new discoveries about yourself. Be on the lookout for insights you can gain from each situation. How you approach life determines the richness of your journey. Every day seek to explore like a wonder-filled adventurer.

Until next time, remember-it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!

Who’s Your Biggest Mentor?

Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy and Janie Sykes-Kennedy

When asked “Who’s your biggest mentor?”, Success & Wellness Coach Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy contributed to MyCorporation Blog sharing thoughts on her mother:

“My mother, Janie Sykes-Kennedy, has been my biggest mentor. A Columbia University-trained journalist, she ran Sykes Kennedy Associates, Inc., a marketing consulting company that did business around the world. In the late 1980s, she was invited by the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Housing & Urban Development as one of fourteen women to start trade talks with China and walked away with a contract to distribute the journal, Building in China, worldwide. She showed me by example what was possible as a female entrepreneur. You can make your dreams come true by believing in yourself, living your values, pursuing your vision, working smart, and seeking joy along the way.”
