Happy New Year, everyone!
I’m super excited to start this new year. 2017 was really good to me, but I’m so excited for what’s to come.
Here are some of my goals for the new year:
1) Grow my business
This might sound like a no-brainer, but I really want to focus on this – I’ve been out of (grad) school for almost 4 years now and had several jobs.. but none of them felt right or brought me any happiness.. even though photography wasn’t exactly new to me last year, it was the first time I took it really seriously, practiced, studied, and sought clients. I’ve never been happier! Photography not only allows me to be creative, but allows me to make other people happy. I really couldn’t ask for more. I want to focus on improving my skills and working with tons of new clients 🙂
2) Work on myself
Something I started doing recently is meditating. As an INTJ, my head is always racing with a million different thoughts. It can be very difficult for me to relax and escape from anxiety, but meditating has really helped me center myself and be more in control. I like to use an app called Headspace (I tried other apps but they didn’t work as well for me). Along with mental health goes physical health – so working out regularly and eating a bit better is also on the list.
Books! Not my phone or laptop screen.. I am seriously bad with this.. I haven’t finished the same book I picked up a couple of years ago.
4) Travel more
The best way to learn about different cultures and people is by traveling. I love to travel and hope to do a lot more of it this year – it’s also a great way to find new inspiration.
What are your goals for this year?
