If I’m being honest with you, and with myself, 2009 was a blur. I spent the better half of my morning reflecting on the past year, and all of it’s up’s and down’s. I realized that I focused most (if not all) of my energy on my business, and left my personal life on the back burner. I spent the entire year working on projects, hoping to find some time for myself at the end, and it never happened. I love my job so much, I often forget to take time off to enjoy some of the other things in life that I really like to do. I suppose the downfall of working for yourself is that your work becomes your life. I’m okay with that, but there has to be a balance.
I’ve decided that my goal for the new year is simply this: take time for myself, live in the moment, + enjoy the small things. (Oh, and um, burn off those holiday cookies.) I know it sounds cliche’, but it’s truly what I’m going to focus on in 2010. Finding that balance between work + play will be hard for me this year, but I feel up to the challenge.
Ferris Buller put it in words better than I ever could: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
I’m so excited for this upcoming year! I’ve got some amazing weddings lined up, a new website on the way, and some vacations in the works. Thank you to all my lovely clients! I’m so thankful that I get to continue doing what I love to do. I’m so blessed!
Happy New Year! Here’s to an unforgettable 2010!!
