Journey 2018 | Weeks 1 & 2

Hi There.

Welcome to my Journey

So here we are, nearly one month in to 2018. Each new year, I set myself goals. Lose some weight, eat healthier, make more time for this or that. And I almost never follow through. I always say, if there is anything I am consistent about, it’s not following through. (always good with the self deprecating jokes, I am)…. but I digress.  First of all, photography has always been a creative outlet for me, each year is a journey that takes me somewhere I never expected it to. I had a busy year, a profitable one. Successful but anyone’s standards. Well, except my own. I wasn’t in love with it anymore. It was becoming monotonous, doing the same thing over and over again.

I follow a lot of photographers on Social Media. Near the end of 2017, I met another photographer who mentioned that she was taking a workshop the following year, Journey 2018, given by a big photographer we both love. Meg Bitton. It’s a 365 day workshop where you take a different photo each day, after being given a prompt. I knew this was my opportunity to challenge myself, and find the love I lost for my art.

Life sometimes gets in the way..

Last year was a tough one. Health issues with our daughter, losing grandparents, among other things. I felt so very lost by the end of the year. it seem ed like I had taken care of everyone else, but myself. It was clear to me, come the new year, I needed to make some changes. So i decided that I would take 2018 to find myself again. So I am hopeful and optimistic for 2018 and what it has in store for me. You all will be following along with me as I post weekly, my Journey and where it’s taking me. Since I am a little behind (what? me behind? Never!! Haha!)
