Photography Dream - Keys to Good Nutrition and to Eating Healthy

Welcome to my blog on maximum health and optimal nutrition.

Today I'd like to share with you one of my passions: inspirational photography. I'll share a little bit later how this relates to eating healthy and good nutrition.

I have been very busy lately preparing for a contest that was held today. I'm part of a local photographer's club called the Blue Ridge Photographic Society of North Carolina. Every Saturday these friends of mine and I meet to improve our photography and Photoshop skills, and once a month we have a contest focused on a specific theme. This month's theme was "autumn."

I've spent much of my spare time this past month photographing the beautiful and spectacular colors of the autumn foliage here in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. I always carry my camera and tripod with me everywhere I go because I never know when I'm going to see an inspirational scene that I want to capture. I have been very busy this past month photographing the fall colors every chance I could get. The past week I've been doing all of my post-photography work in Adobe CS2.

Well, my friends, today was the big day. Six of us met together and submitted our 2-3 photographs each, and then we all individually and anonymously judged the photographs and voted for the best photograph of the month. I am happy to say that one of my three photographs won the best photograph! I was elated to win, and I thank God for this significant blessing. The winning photograph, entitled "Autumn Solitude," is of a pristine lake in the Blue Ridge Mountains with a kayaker paddling across in the serene autumn solitude.

I am blessed to be able to share the three photographs with you today that I submitted into our competition. I hope that you will enjoy them and be inspired by the awesome beauty of God's creation. Let the sense of wonder be kindled in your heart as you view these pictures.

Why am I sharing these photographs with you and telling you about my photography?

I'm sure you're wondering how this relates to my topic of and tips to .

The simple fact is this: one of my God-given gifts and passions is photography, and I have a whole food nutritional supplement home business that is helping me finance my dream of becoming a professional landscape photographer. Building my URI International nutritional business is not an end in itself, but rather a means to an end. My greatest passion in this life is to love God and serve Him, which includes loving people and serving them. I want to use my URI business to finance my dreams of missions, teaching health and nutrition seminars, training, hospitality, traveling, ministry, and photography.

You see, nutrition and photography are only two of my passions, and yet, they're very much connected to my URI . Not only will my nutrition business provide the financial resources to fund my dreams and achieve my purposes in this life, but it will free up my time so that I can pursue my dreams and accomplish all that God has called me to do. It takes time and money to go on mission trips, to travel and teach, to have a fruitful hospitality ministry, to minister and serve people, and to achieve my photography goals. I hope you now understand why I have shared my photography with you today and how it relates to my URI nutritional supplement business.

What are your dreams and goals? What is your God-ordained purpose in this life? What vision do you have for the future? I encourage you to think about these important issues and write down your purposes, goals, and dreams. Ask God to show you what specific purposes He has for your life. Allow Him to resurrect old dreams that have died or have been neglected. And then ask yourself how having your own URI nutritional home business might be a way for you to achieve the and that is necessary for you to pursue and fulfill your purpose in this life.
