2013: Looking Forward

Like so many others, I look at every new year as a chance to start anew – begin a new project, tackle a nagging bad habit, start a new dream.  In the past several days, I’ve thought a lot about what I want to do for the new year.  I’m not going to address my entire list here, but I thought I’d highlight a few.

I’m on my fifth year of doing a daily photo project, or Project 365.  Hard to tell by looking at the blog since my last post was somewhere mid-year three.  A new baby girl allowed me the opportunity to redirect some of my energy for a while.

This year, I’m not going to do a daily photo project, or more accurately, I’m not going to blog a Project 365. I’ll be taking my project off-line.  One of my goals for this year is to document my daily and family life in a Project Life journal.

You can read all about Becky Higgins’ Project Life product on her website.  I have all the supplies for the Clementine theme, and I’m pretty excited about it.

I will be doing an online Project 52, where I will be posting a weekly photo.  Instead of just taking a photo for the day, I want to plan out my image and really think about how to best photograph my subject.  My hope is to improve my photography.

Since I did not post a single image from my Project 365 for 2012, I am considering posting those daily images this year instead.  I just read about this idea today, so I haven’t quite fleshed out how it might work for me, but I like the idea of catching up on what I didn’t manage last year.

So there’s three things rattlings around in my head.  I think that’s a good place to start for 2013.

I’ll end with a quote I read this morning that really spoke to me on many different levels.  I think it is a good thought for my year and the projects and challenges ahead.

What are your goals, dreams and aspirations for 2013?
