Resolutions. We’ve all made them and we’ve probably all broken them at some point. This year, instead of the typical “eat healthy and lose 20 pounds” type of resolutions, I decided to switch things up a bit. As you all know from my previous blog post about baby steps, a lot has changed for me both personally and with my business starting in 2015. I decided to take a step back and look at my life and who I am as a person, and came up with some life resolutions for 2015. These are things I want to strive towards, things I need to keep in my head as I move forward through the year.
1. Be Accountable.
I am going to hold myself accountable for my goals, for my to-do lists, for my life in general. It’s human nature to blame everything else when things aren’t going as planned, but in the end we are each responsible for our own outcomes. I plan to hold myself accountable not only for my failures but for my successes as well!
2. Be Present.
In a world full of technology, this one can be tough sometimes. I want to be present both in my own life and that of my husband and son. I want to put down the phone and step away from the computer every once in a while and really live life with them.
We were all born to sparkle! I want to add more sparkle to my life, both figuratively and literally. I want to start each day with a smile on my face and a positive attitude. I want to make an effort to feel good about myself!
4. Take More Photos.
This one might sound silly since I am a photographer, but it’s funny how when you do something for a living, you find yourself doing a lot less of it for fun. I want to start taking more photos in between all of my clients sessions. I want to take more photos of my family and our everyday adventures. I want to set up more photo shoots that are just for fun. I want to be sure to remind myself why I do what I do and love it so much!
So those are the four resolutions I made for myself this year! I wrote them up on my dry erase board next to my desk as a constant reminder. I hope they will help inspire you to create your own life resolutions. Are there any changes in your life that sparked you to make a set of resolutions for the new year? Leave a comment, with some of your 2015 resolutions. I’d love to hear them! xo
