Most years, I don't really get into the whole New Year's thing -- making resolutions, turning the page, choosing a word to guide my way... But this morning I woke up to a beautiful, warm and sunny day, and it just felt right to consider where I wanted to go this year and how to get there.
If I had to choose a word for this new year, as so many bloggers have done, I think it would be the word accomplish. There are so many things I have wanted to do, but have been afraid or, worse yet, too lazy to really try to do. But this year, I am making a conscious effort to change my drifting life, and really accomplish some of my goals.
And those goals are both big and small: exercise every day, eat more vegetables, paint my bedroom dresser, put up wainscoting in the kitchen, start a portrait photography business.
Start a portrait photography business -- yup, there's the one that scares the pants off me. I am so not a business woman. But I know that I'm smart, and if I just read and learn, I can find my way forward. I may need to make a trail, follow a path, without quite knowing what is over the horizon -- but sometimes a little faith is called for, no?
So that is what I'm going to do. Walk forward, with as much knowledge as I can find and a little bit of faith to guide me, and work toward accomplishing some of those goals.
Wish me luck!
