This may seem after-the-fact, since we are already 24 days into 2013 and I’m just now posting about my goals, but who says the year begins in January!! The year has already been in full swing since September. Many can relate if you work in a school. Fall is a type of beginning, the weather begins to change, transition is already under way, new clothes, new supplies, new way of thinking…so really I should be making my goals for the year in September! But I digress, in keeping with the “New Year” I feel as though I
should need to write out of my goals for this upcoming year.
This topic has been the death of me ever since 2013 rang in, I have felt this need to evaluate my goals from 2012, list my many accomplishments and the nowhere near, not even finished ones…but every time I sit down to write, it pains me, so that’s when I retreat to the couch, snoodle up with a cozy blanket and nap! But the procrastination has to stop sometime and I thought today would be the day!
Ever since I started blogging I have fallen in love with it! I feel this sense of release every time I sit down and write, I have never been good at keeping a journal until now, this is my virtual journal (that I just happen to share with the entire world), but I also feel this sense of community too. Even though I’ve never met most of the people I follow, I feel like they are my friends, they let me into their lives on a daily basis so I feel like I know them and I can connect with them. Blogging has not only improvement my photography, but also my writing and confidence! I clearly know this is something I want to keep pursuing, even if somedays I feel stalled. This picture plays over and over again in my mind, the picture is of my perfect day, I would wake up, walk over to my favorite coffee joint, throw open my computer, check emails, social media, possible blog about interesting topics (maybe even get paid for it) or edit a beautiful photo-shoot, all while sipping on my very beverage! Then afterwards I would meet with clients or whatever, go shopping! What a dream! But I don’t want it to be just a dream, I want it to be reality. It’s a strong desire I have and I’d rather be sitting in a local coffee shop on my computer searching the web, than sitting behind a desk not feeling creative. But I guess that is for another time & place.
Anyway, back to my goals! If you would like to read about my 2012 goal post in it’s entirety, you can go here, but below I have outlined both my 2012 (with accomplishments) & 2013 goals. Have you set your 2013 goals, I would really love to know what they are!!!
Happy New Year!
