Okay, enough of this boring, self-loathing bullshit. Let's talk about something more upbeat, shall we?!
I didn't make a resolution, but I did start something this year. My friends decided to do a 365 day picture project and when I heard about it, I did what I do so well: I copied them. The premise is to post a picture a day for the whole year. My reason for participating is because I want to look back at these photos next year & remember some of the less prominent, but still happy moments I experienced in 2013. It's easy to reflect on the major happenings, but I believe it is the little stuff that really counts. When I look back, I'll have a very specific reaction/memory to each photo. It will be a visual reminder of every single day in a year of my life. The good, the bad, and yes, sometimes the less flattering. In the short term, it's just a fun challenge to try to complete.
I'm two weeks in, and there have already been quite a few days when I have snapped a random picture at the last minute b/c I realize it's nearly bedtime & I haven't posted a picture for the day. Sometimes that's b/c the day has been uneventful and there just aren't any special moments to capture. Those are the days when I post a picture of one of our dogs or inanimate objects. Like this:
|This is the ring our Christmas tree stand left on our carpet. |
Thrilling, I know.
|I snapped this picture as everyone was leaving.|
|This is mere moments before I went to bed.|
|My Granny when she was a teenager.|
This is another of my favorites so far:
