this time of year is always a great time to reflect on the past year, dream about the future & put some things in place to make the future a reality. i am a bit nervous about putting my new year resolutions in writing because it means i actually have to think about what they will be, then act. sheesh kebab ! scary stuff. but in order to grow in my faith & to grow as a person i really feel this is a good exercise for me to do. over the next few weeks i will flesh out my resolutions so they are not a stand alone statement, rather a thoughtful and actionable statement. i truly hope that i will be able to grow in all these areas & have an awesome year. so, here goes !!!!!!!!!!!!!
#1 increase in faith. this is the most important aspect of my life & constantly needs work
# 2 work on my marriage. a wise lady once said to me “choose your love & love your choice”. i have chosen, now i need to forever love my choice. i honestly believe when we grow in our marriage & in our love, our children also grow. win/win !
#3 be a friend & have friends. i am a terrible introvert … i never return calls, emails, text messages. i get scared of ‘get together’s’ – “what will i talk about?”; “what do they think of me?”; “am i too grumpy?” are just some of the thoughts that go through my head every. single. day. lucky for me i have hope & i know i can move past some of my issues (with A LOT of help). hopefully this will mean that i will be able to be a true friend & feel i have true friends in return. fingers crossed !!
#4 become a better photographer. this is MOST important to me. i am a hack photographer & i am really keen to up-skill as much as possible. Part of this will be the 365 project, part will be purchasing & learning Photoshop CS6, part of this will be discipline.
#5 blog more & better. i am almost at my year anniversary for blogging. yippee! i have had such a fun time learning about the blogosphere & i have learnt a lot reading others’ blogs ! I just love blogging & the blogosphere. so this is on my list.
#6 365 day project. more on this later
#7 survive. finishing my Grad. Dip. Ed & welcoming a new child into our family are two massive things that are creeping up on me fast for 2013 … will i survive? i hope so !!!
So there you have it ! Since seven is the perfect number, I thought I would stop there. Anything more would be waaaaaay tooooooo much for me to handle.
What are some of the new year resolutions that you have?
2013 … I’m ready for YOU !
