The end of 2015 is just around the corner. Last year’s resolutions for the most part fell by the wayside. I continued to eat cereal for dinner, photographed with my actual camera less than I would have liked, and spent more time on the couch with the dogs than outside going on walks.
But that is okay. While I may have fallen short on those goals, what I focused most of my energy on was self discovery. I allowed myself to explore areas of grey within my understanding of myself. Turns out if you allow yourself to be deeply seen, all kinds of things begin to make sense. It is truly hard work, and requires daily practice. I have a greater understanding of why situations or complexities of life get under my skin, and as a result I am able to interact with those around me in a much more generous way. It is freeing really, to let go of assumptions and expectations that no longer serve you. There is much more self discovery to digest, but I find myself eager to explore. I welcome 2016 and like last year have a few goals in mind.
- Choose to brave connection. Look for the sliding door moments.
- Live more minimally. Stuff doesn’t mean much if it is only collecting dust.
- Make exercise a priority. Create a suitable living space for future babies.
- Photograph with your REAL camera.
- Remember that you are enough just as you are, even if your resolutions go out the window two months into 2016.
It was fun to review my year in images in 2014, so I thought I would do it again this year. Happy New Year to you all!
