on a new endeavor...

I'm currently working through my new year's resolutions. I really want to challenge myself in the coming year. I want to be a better me. I know that recently I've been so caught up with the monotony of life, and have been settling for the same old thing. I've just been too content.

I hate that.

I want to want more for myself. There are even small things that I've noticed lately about myself that I really want to improve. I have never been a person with regrets, and I have never done much to even warrant regrets, and I want to stay that way. I hate feeling like I blend in with everyone else, and don't rise above, in certain ways. I want to be someone to be proud of. Does that make sense? I've always wanted to make people proud, and lately I think I've been a bit of a shlump in several different ways. And that's not very becoming. I know that alot of it has to do with being here, being away from my family, making new friends, losing old friends, living in a place so filled with different views/lifestyles, being caught up in the twenty-something whirlwind, learning more about how the world truly is, etc.

So, that's that. But I'm excited about it. I'm the type of person who does best with a goal in sight. That's why I've always loved the time when a new year begins. There is so much hope.

When I get a chance, I'll post my list of "resolutions". We shall see what happens, but I'm feeling good. There are alot of things I want to work on, but I'm ready for it. I really am.

(Stay tuned for a brand new, shiny photography blog. Weeeee! I'm going to wait until the new year to really do anything with it (hurrah for a new project) but right now I'm just tweaking the layout and all that jazz.)

  2. I hate how you can get so caught up in living life that you can forget to think about it. We all need more resolutions to lead intentional lives.

  3. I love the idea of starting anew each year. It's so refreshing.

    May you succeed in your endeavor towards a better self. :-)
