Taking risks, thinking big, being bold

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. :)
