Section 1 Intentions
This community is a practice of ”Unconditional positive regard”. This is the basic acceptance and support of a person regardless of what the person says or does. Nearly every action that people take has a positive intention to them. They are usually operating to the best of their abilities at that time. Please be mindful of this as you navigate through the community.
The community is called Focus On Happiness, so use it as a place to expand on your positive experiences and to focus on a productive mindset. Read the rules. Click Here.
Photography is a journey. In here, we celebrate all levels of camera ability. It isn’t solely based around the pictures you take. Its about the benefits you receive from this whole experience. The learning, the photography, the me time, getting outside, experiencing life, the community, living in the now, being grateful, sharing and the support. We want you to make the most of the community we provide.
Feel free to post any pictures, experiences or motivation around Your Mindography Journey.
We will have monthly challenges, tips and trick along with much more going on inside. Enjoy the whole package and feel free to get started right now.
