I am not the kind of person who sits down on New Years and makes a list of things I want to change about myself. My philosophy is to constantly evaluate my actions and life and to change whenever change is needed. I try to be a genuine person with a warm heart and to stay open to new ideas and inspiration. I am by no means perfect. I spend too much time on my computer, I don't see my family and friends as much as I should, I am a little hard headed, I sometimes procrastinate, and after thinking about that John Lennon quote I posted below, I know that there is a part of me that allows fear to get in the way of my dreams. As I grow as an artist I am learning to turn that fear into a tool I use to push myself creatively. When I conquer fear I feel a huge sense of satisfaction. When I take risks I feel empowered. When I think big, big things happen.
This is year is going to be fantastic. I plan on thinking as far outside of the box as I can both artistically and with my business. I plan on diving in head first with the full confidence. Here is a little bit of what I have coming up and what I am really excited about ...2 new websites (I am finally putting up an art site), my first destination wedding in Mexico, working with my new partner/friend, Jen Daut on love+bash, Cincinnati's very first Indie/Alternative Wedding Expo(full post on that soon!), new equipment purchases, dusting off my film cameras for a little fun, and a few personal portrait projects I have stirring in my head.
2011 is going to be HUGE, just wait and see!
Last winter I had a 2 month love affair with a flock of crow. I wonder if they are roosting in the same place? I might have to give them a visit soon. :)
