In an effort to keep working on the larger goal of becoming a great photographer and having a successful photography business, I need to continue learning each and everyday. For the 21 day challenge, I challenged myself to take a photo eveyday. I learned a lot about myself as a photographer and the areas I need to improve on. For the month of Febuary, I will continue to be behined the camera as much as possible, but I am challenging myself to read and/or watch a tutorial or lesson on photography everyday of this month. There is always something new to learn and I have found some great resources. I may even strive to do multiple lessons a day.
I can't even begin to imagine how it must be to be overseas, in a remote place, cut off from things that you are accustomed to and have little communication with the outside world. I want to adopt a soldier who is in need of friendship and support. I want to give a soldier a little taste of home by sending care packages with their favorite candy or fruit drink. Things we take advantage of every day but a soldier in a combat zone would treasure.
I know it may sound silly or cliche and even a very easy thing to do, but I picture the curiosity and wonder I would have if I was walking along the beach and I found a message in a bottle. I would love to give that wonder to someone. This has been something that I have thought about doing for some time now, but why I haven't, I don't know. I am giving myself until the end of this coming weekend to do this.
The years went by and the pounds packed on. By the time I turned 30 I was thinking "how did I let this happen?". Health is the reason for this goal. I have started feeling the effects on my body for being over weight. Although I don't have any current issues with things such as blood pressure, diabetes, etc, I know it's only a matter of time. I do not have the endurance I use to, and I want to get that back. I have already lost 20 ls. That was my firts goal, now my next one is 25lbs. I have 76 more lbs I want to lose total, but I am going for small, realistic goals.
