The First Day

Today is the first day of the new year, of the new decade. For most of us that means a new list of things we are going to start ... and in a couple weeks forget we made that list. This year I decided to do things a little differently. But in order to do that I had to look back and see what I had done. In November of 2018 I had surgery which put me out of commissioned from November 2018 to almost mid January 2019. After working all of this December I took a step back and realized that something felt different . I had never come this way before. This was my first winter as full time photographer... and I felt every bit of it.

I cannot complain like some and say that this was a bad year for them. 2019 did me pretty good. I met some amazing couple and got to work with some other amazing families and businesses. So how do make 2020 better? I realized after going and taking the look back that there where some loopholes in some of my ideas and training and I HATE loopholes! I have done lives on Facebook talking about scheduling out your time but as time got away form me I stopped scheduling. So, I accept the fact that doing that everyday was working for me. I will take a day for a specific part of my life and take care of it . Don't let it bleed into another part of my life or my schedule.

My health has been another factor/issue this year and so I cannot run a business nor take care of my family if I am not healthy or here. Back to the gym I go ( confession #1 - I haven't been seen Thanksgiving ... I KNOW I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE!). There are medications that the doctors have put me on that I really want to get off of and in order to do that I must do right by my body. Not only the gym but being more conscious of what I eat will help.

I hope this blog helps someone to not start something fresh but restart something that was working for them. Sometimes we see things on TV that are bright and shiny and new and we go for that when what we had was working all along. Go Back and stick to it! Don't worry you are not alone, we are on this journey together. let's get through this one day at a time ... and today is just The First Day !
