My goals for 2014

{for the love of gold}

I can't remember a time when I was so happy to see a year end. Don't get me wrong, 2013 brought a lot of blessings but it was also one of the hardest I've ever experienced. Not only did January 1st bring a new year but also a new moon - so we all got our lunar slates wiped clean. Every January I take a moment to reflect and set mini resolutions for the coming year. I don't make full year resolutions because I feel like I'm just setting myself up for failure. Instead I come up with a list of goals, some large, some small & assign a goal to each month. I won't bore you by listing every one of my goals since half of them are probably the same as yours (eat better, exercise more, appreciate the small stuff, etc.) but I am sharing a few of the major ones.

This is my manta for the year. There is already far too much negativity and I don't want to add to it. I find that half of the "comment" sections online are filled with crappy, petty comments. Constructive criticism is fine but if you're looking to tease, put down or just be nasty - keep on a'movin. I am going to try my hardest to keep my mind & corner of the world a happy, positive place.

My parents gave me a camera for Christmas (aren't they great?). Up until now most of the product photos I've taken for my business have been taken with my cell phone. It does the job but I am ready for a more professional upgrade. I plan to research & learn as much as I can to improve my photography skills. :)

When things get busy my blog tends to take a backseat to everything else (well, cleaning toilets takes a back, backseat). This year I want to make a conscious effort to keep up with it even when things are crazy. After all, this is how I relax so it is important to carve out some time.
