I’m a twenty-something wedding photographer in Texas who photographs couples who are ready to celebrate their marriage. Building my business has been one hell of a ride, so grab a cup of coffee (or some wine - no judgement here) and join me for my life behind the lens.
About four years ago, I stumbled across a blog by an inspiring woman named Lara Casey. I have no idea how I ended up on her blog, but her story and encouragement has been a big part of my life ever since. Her books have impacted me greatly as I transitioned from the corporate life to a life of a creative entrepreneur. In Lara’s Cultivate What Matters shop, she sells a beautiful workbook called the PowerSheets (you can read all about them here!). I wasn’t entirely sure what they were, but they were pretty and I’m an impulse buyer, so I purchased them.
To be honest, I didn’t use that first set of PowerSheets as much as I had wanted to. I’d fill out my goals and then forget about them. It left me feeling guilty for a number of reasons, but then there was a moment where I realized that perfectionism was my problem. If I missed a goal or didn’t do something every day, I was failing. I wasn’t giving myself any grace.
I ordered my 2017 set and I made myself a promise that it was okay to be messy. It was okay to grow slow. Most importantly, it was okay that all of the boxes weren’t checked. My PowerSheets became my place of refuge and safety. On though days, I journaled in any blank space I could find. During moments of great joy, I wrote my gratitude in the margins. My PowerSheets not only became the place where I wrote down my goals, but it was also where I shared my heart.
This year, I made it a priority to complete the prep work and define my BIG 2018 goals. From there, I broke down those big goals into smaller pieces, which turn into my monthly, weekly and daily goals and I’d love to share them with you as I work through 2018!
Here are my BIG 2018 goals:
I knew that I’d have a few goals this month that required quite a bit of energy and focus (like completing Whole 30), so I tried to keep it simple!
I’ll be posting again in February with updates on how I did and what my new goals are!
What are your goals for 2018?
So let's take our new relationship offline and meet face-to-face for hugs and a warm beverage!
