Happy New Year! Woohoo! Another year down and many to go! I don’t know about you but last year was actually a pretty good year for my business. There were some low points definitely but I, like everyone else, has to work through them. We can pause and take note but we must keep going because life must go on.
As with each near year, we all hope for a new beginning. Why don’t we do more than hope and actually do something to make our new beginning happen? Last year, I started preparing for my new beginning which included me being more organized. I am actually planning things out so that I’m not stressing myself out doing last minute things. It’s wonderful!
New Year’s resolutions have never been my thing. So many people make them and they sometimes end up falling by the wayside. My “resolution” is to simply be happy. I choose happiness every year. This doesn’t mean that I’m happy all of the time because that would be weird. I just choose to not let my negative thoughts or feelings get in the way of me moving forward. Perhaps I’ll stall but I won’t stop.
The new year is always a good reset for our lives but it doesn’t have to be. We can reset out thinking, our actions, our words, our goals anytime we want. We just need to have that desire. This year, I plan to continue sharing parts of my life, knowledge and dare I say wisdom with you all. I do hope you will read and even appreciate what I have to say. Would I love to get new clients out of the things I post? Absolutely! But, what I also love is that fact that you are taking time out of your day to read what I have to say. That means a lot. And if what I have to say entertains or enlightens you, then that means even more.
Let us all take this opportunity to reflect on what we did and then look forward and plan what we will do. Learn from the mistakes and put what you’ve learned into practice. If we all do that, I’m sure the only direction we can go is up!
Happy New Year to you all and much love, success and many blessings to you all! Don’t forget, if you or someone you know needs portraits of their children, I’m always here. Better yet, if you want to schedule a time to talk to me about your photography needs, just click here.
