Do you Resolute? Here’s mine…

I am not sure if using the word resolute in that sense really works… but what I mean is New Year’s Resolutions – yes or no?

I do.  I’ve talked about my resolutions in the past here.  Somehow putting them online makes me have to stick to them a bit more.

This year, I want to invest in me.  Yes, I want to spend time with my kids and family but I also want to focus on personal development and just taking better care of myself.

Eat my fruit and vegetables. My kids get tons of fruit and vegetables.  I often watch them eat a pear, apple or roasted carrots while I munch on…  chocolate.  Guys, dead serious on this.

Exercise. I have no idea how and when this will happen. We have an exercise bike in the basement that my husband uses but it does not appeal to me at all.  I used to run a lot but running in the bitter cold and darkness?  I’m not sure I’m that motivated.  TBD

Skills. I need to focus on improving areas where I am currently feeling a bit frustrated or stagnant.  Right now the biggie for me is photo editing and getting the right feel to my photos.  I think this is just a lot of looking at photos to see what I like and taking photos to see what works for me.

Me.  I need to start investing a little bit more in myself.  I need to go for a bra fitting and stop wearing an old sports bra on rotation.  I used to like getting dressed and putting together outfits – it made me feel more confident.  I didn’t dread seeing people I know on the street.  I’m not going to say I need to start dressing up or wearing tons of makeup – I say each to their own on that front – but hiding when I see people is probably not great.  Paying a little more attention to what I put on, not ALWAYS throwing my hair in a ponytail.  I think these are good things.  Also… I need to switch out the 3-4 makeup products I use for new ones that aren’t expired.  (yes – yuck)

Photography.  I’ve decided that I’d like to do lifestyle photography (families & newborns) professionally.  This means more photos and better photos of my kids and others as I grow and learn.  It means reaching out to the community, accepting critiques and growing as a photographer. I’m verrrry excited.  (And a big thanks to my amazing husband for the camera upgrade!!)

If you are in the area and interested in a family lifestyle or newborn session at a reduced rate while I build my portfolio please contact me for details.

What about you guys?  Do you do resolutions or do you think they are a waste of time?

And Happy New Year’s Guys!!  To a fantastic 2016 and great things for everyone!

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
