Wow...what a year! The good, the bad, and the in between....has rounded out to be quite the experience.
Reflecting on the past year I’ve realized a few things about myself....
*I’m more guarded and less affectionate then I’d like to be at times.
*Running a business takes thick skin and passion alone won’t make it succeed
*Forgetfulness has taken hold of my life! To the point that I’ve forgotten to meet a client, take Jesse to a Dr’s appt, and the list goes on ...I’ve already tried to remedy this with calendars & reminders set up everywhere I can possibly think of.
*I really did follow through on my resolution to “live in the now” Life has taken on a new routine that forced me to do just that. The planner/list maker side of me really struggles with this cause it keeps me from planning ahead the way I like (see previous point of being forgetful) but it also has allowed me to truly enjoy the moment while experiencing it and not think of the “next” upcoming thing.
*A few of my friendships have really blossomed in 2010. Thank you girls...you know who you are. You feed my girl soul :)
* I’m happy with the person I’m becoming but know there’s still LOTS of room to grow & improve
And with that last point...here’s a few resolutions/goals I have for myself for 2011
*Be better organized! Goes without saying really....
*Show more LOVE...in every aspect of my life. Towards Kristen, Jesse, my family, my friends and clients.
*Be more specific with the goals I’d like to obtain for my photography business.
*Returning from the 2010 resolutions....GIVE! I feel like I helped people whenever I could in 2010 but I know I could have done better. So again this resolution remains for 2011.
*And last but not least, live life with a joyful heart. These past few months I found it all too easy to complain and be victim to my circumstances. It’s time to look at the positive and truly make the best of every situation. Because life is NOW, not where we’re going, or where we want to be. Don’t wish and wish and forget to be joyful, grateful and thankful for what you have now, who is in your life now and your circumstances right now.
May your 2011 be filled with LOVE, GENEROSITY & A JOYFUL HEART :) all on a calendar colour coded & covered with post it note reminders.
Happy New Year!!!
