OK, shopping is done, shipping is done, let the real holiday begin. I was late getting into the holiday this year. Between Thanksgiving being so late in the month and then immediately getting ill, I was way behind in getting everything having to do with the holiday done. The house was not decorated, the shopping was not done and I was behind at work as well.
But now that I have everything but one item in the mail or being delivered by my niece, I can finally relax and really enjoy the several days off that I am taking this week. There are so many reasons why I love being self-employed, but one of the best ones is definitely being able to design my own schedule and take time off without having to ask for permission from anyone. I am really looking forward to a week off, seeing movies with my daughter and friends, reading a couple of books and basically just chilling.
Laura and I start another year of photography in January and I have time this week to give some thought to how and what we are going to do. I want to really give some thought to the projects this year, be serious about learning more and take some great photos. We are all taking a big trip this year and by the time we leave for it, I want to know more about my camera in a way that will facilitate me taking some great shots of this trip.
I am going to eat less meat in 2015 and this week I want to find some recipes that I can have available to make the transition to pescetarian smoother.
I want to take some time this week to remember what I am grateful for and to write down my mantras for 2015. What thoughts am I going to allow to pass through my brain, what energy am I going to release out into the universe, what do I want to see happen in my life in 2015 and let’s start thinking it and expecting it. I find that having a plan and writing it down really helps ground me and make me feel more in control of what is happening in my life. I have been floundering too long without a plan and it has been too unsettling. This week I change that.
So, come to find out, I have a lot to do with this week, but, still, I am looking forward to it.
