So, the last six months of 2017 I was really doing some searching. I was allowing comparison to steal my joy. I was striving for something that everyone else had instead of figuring out what I wanted. What did I want? Do I still want to do this? Do I have the discipline, time and energy to do what it takes to get to where I thought I needed to be? So, I stopped blogging my lack of success in my 365 day project, which was one photo a day for the whole year. I deleted my photography website, facebook page and quit posting my images. I just wasn’t sure if this was what I wanted to do or if I was actually any good at it. Well after praying about it, talking to my husband about it and still using my camera, not daily but I was still shooting, I have decided to continue doing what I love. I want to focus on what I want my images to say and what I wanted them to look like and not do what everyone else is doing. I’m not everyone else. I am very excited to further my education and skills this year. Have you ever had to step back and contemplate what you are doing and why you are doing it? I think it is a great way to get refocused and set some goals for yourself. So, here’s to a new year and to new goals!
