"THE OBJECT OF A NEW YEAR IS NOT THAT WE SHOULD HAVE A NEW YEAR. IT IS THAT WE SHOULD HAVE A NEW SOUL". ~G.K. Chesterton
I love the feeling of a fresh start, a clean slate to wipe past failures away. To learn from yesterday so that today I can fulfill my purpose God has for me. Tomorrow is not promised. When really analyzed it changes my thinking and my actions.
At the close of a year I get busy on my "new goals" list along with my theme for the new year.
Last year my theme was "GROW". It meant so many things for my life and motivated me along the way. This year I wanted to build on this and chose "COMMITMENT" for my new theme.
(Commitment~ an act of committing to a change; dedication, application.)
It is the perfect follow up to a year filled with growth, of taking steps forward rather than backwards.
Now it is time to be diligent and committed into following through with these desires and goals.
One of my goals is to re-commit to our blog. Though God had bigger plans than photography for us in 2011 and at times I got overwhelmed (and even discouraged) with juggling my full time job and photography. I aim to stay dedicated to keeping photography a passion in my life. First and foremost I commit it to the Lord and want to serve His kingdom. Beyond that will be the cherry on top. I am excited for what He has in store for me this year. I commit to documenting my journey in 2012!
