New Beginnings

Its a new year... and with a new year comes the endless attempts to make ourselves better people with less bad habits and more good ones. Its a noble gesture but one that I have yet to accomplish. No more than 90 days into a new year and my resolutions are either long abandoned or have recently fallen prey to my indifference or laziness.

This year is different. I've resolved not to make any new years resolutions that I don't want to do.  For example, I do NOT want to stop eating McDonalds. I do NOT want to work out every day (or ever for that matter), I do NOT want to start back up with a rigorous weekly cleaning schedule. I simply don't.

I mean I get it... the whole purpose of resolutions seems to be to motivate yourself to do the very things you don't ever want to do... but it simply doesn't work for me! And to be honest it doesn't seem to work well for other people either... hehe

So, this year I am trying something new. I'm trying to put together a list of things I really WANT to do.  All of them at this point include photography but I have other things brewing in my mind - including a variety of areas of my life.  One of them is to take a picture/week. I've written out themes and asked a good friend who is good at photography to join me in my endeavor. (If anyone else wants to join in just shoot me an email!)

Who knows, come March I may end up dropping the ball and count it as another 90 day resolution but for now its something I'm actually excited about. I'm being challenged... even at the get go.  I'm the one who made the themes and still this week had me stumped. I have a couple other ideas I'd love to try to post before the weekly theme is up but since the goal is one per week I'm counting this one done as completed!

So here you have it....

I like your take on resolutions because I, personally, can't even remember the last time I made one (for the same reasons you mentioned). I do love your themed pictures idea...and I look forward to seeing them as long as you so wish to keep taking and posting them. :) Happy New year to you!
