As new years go, I’m not generally one to create resolutions. I tend to just go with the flow. That’s not to say that I don’t have goals. Goals are the driving force that motivate us to grow and change and it’s important to have some sense of direction for the future, even if it is just short term.
Recently I have forced myself to do things that I don’t normally do. Nothing big: just getting out of my own way and expanding who I am as a photographer. I look forward to the transition into the new year as the opportunity to continue growing.
One of those challenges for personal and professional growth is blogging. I tend to overthink things and the more I think about what might be interesting to blog about, the less fluidly my fingers move across the keyboard. Eventually most of my keystrokes are linked to the delete key and the end result is a blank screen. So for this year I resolve to…wait, I don’t even like the sound of that. How about I just say that I hope to share my voice, sarcasm and all, more freely. My goal is to type more freely and not filter myself. Well, maybe a little bit. It may be short and brief, but I will make my attempt to put stuff out there just ‘cuz.
In honor of this monumental occasion, I share this first image of the year. Sorry folks, it’s just me. I call this “Break Free”. Here’s hoping that you too make 2016 the year that you break free from your daily routine and create new adventures and lasting memories.
