Happy New Year and all that jazz. I could catch you up on the, oh, whole month of December, but let's just not and move on.
I've decided to go back to doing monthly goals. I think they are much more reasonable than year long resolutions that peter out in a few weeks anyway.
Following Saroy's lead (yet again), I want to list some things that I want to get done this month. We'll see how it goes.
1.) Meal Planning
My boyfriend got me this meal planning pad for Christmas. Meal planning is a place where I really fall down. I like this pad because I know a lot of times I actually do better with pencil and paper than an app. It has blocks down the side for each day of the week and a place to make notes about breakfast, dinner and other. My goal is to use this each week to plan for the week ahead.
I have slowly been working my way back to photography. I have made a photo page on the blog with a portfolio of my work (check it out!). I sold a photograph and even dragged my DSLR out for an assignment. I want to embrace this return to photography, but I also need to accept that right now my most used camera is on my iPhone. I am back to my eternal struggle of what to share where, but for inspiration I am doing a color photo assignment. The color I picked, or should I say that this website picked for me, is green. By the end of the month I hope to have three green photos that I am happy with.
3.) Take 10
I've gotten into the very bad habit of doing the minimum required to get out the door, especially on work days. I always feel better when I take a few minutes to put on some eye shadow or style my hair. I want to take 10 minutes each day before I leave to make sure I do this. Not that it will be a dramatic transformation from the outside, but I know I will feel better on the inside.
