How is it already the end of 2017? Apparently, when you get older, time really does move faster. I always enjoy going through my photos at the end of the year to see how much has happened in a year and see where I've grown and what I still need to work on. The end of the year is a time of reflection. I always like to spend time thinking about the areas in my life I want to improve and to come up with a new theme for the following year.
This year has been a remarkable one. It started off with a Birthday in the mountains and ended with me getting engaged to the love of my life. There were definitely some ups and downs throughout the year and a lot of lessons learned, but I'm happy with how it turned out. It's a year that won't easily be forgotten. When it comes to 2018 there are a few more things I'd like to work on, both professionally and personally, to make it an even better year. These are my 2018 resolutions and my favorite photos from 2017!
Peace Of Mind
I struggle with the whole "Slow to anger" thing. This year I'm making yoga and meditation a priority in my daily practice. I want to not only use yoga as a means of exercise but to calm the mind and to focus on breathing. It doesn't stop with yoga, finishing with a longer Shavasana (corpse pose) and focusing on letting go of thoughts and is just as important. Working the body and resting the mind.
The Year Of Creativity
This year I'm working on all things creative. I was trained in drawing and painting and want to get back to doing more of that. In the last year, I created 2 pieces of art and I want to be creating more than that. I also want to spend time on personal photography projects that will help my expand both creatively and as a photographer.
In my last post, I talked about marketing and that's a huge goal for my business this next year. Working on expanding my shop and bringing in more clientele both commercial and portrait. I'm looking at removing some other parts of my business so I can focus on the main components of my brand and really make them grow. There are some hard decisions coming up but ones I'm sure will take my business to the places I want it to go.
And now for the moment, you've all been waiting for. . . as I think of the future it helps to reflect on the past year too and to see how far I've come. With that, here are my favorite photos from this past year!
