2010 is coming to an end and that means 2 things. 1) I needed to decide on my One Little Word (inspired by Ali Edwards beginning in 2007) for 2011 and 2) pick a year-long photography project. Last Thursday morning at a time when I wasn’t even really thinking about either of these I came up with a plan.
My One Little Word for 2011 is
My year-long photography project [and challenge] for 2011 is One Little Word | Captured.
EMBRACE [who I am] was inspired mostly by something that happened recently that made me truly realize my unattainable quest for perfection sabotages of my efforts, joy and accomplishments and not long after that I overheard my son ask his dad, "why do you think mom doesn't like pictures of herself?".
Also inspired by 3 women that I have followed closely for more than a year that were instrumental in getting me here. To this point in my life. Tracey Clark. Brene Brown. Ali Edwards.
This is where you come in. Do you have One Little Word for 2011? Maybe a goal(s) you wish to accomplish? Share your journey. Your accomplishments. Your struggles and maybe even frustrations.
Join me beginning in January for 52 weeks of a photographic interpretation of what One Little Word | Captured means to you. A deliberate approach. Support, motivate and encourage each other throughout the year. Get the details here > One Little Word | Captured
Monday Alec and Alyssa stayed home from school for the first snow day of the season. I wasn't home to take pictures of the hours they spent playing and by the time I got home they were too cold and too tired to go outside. I have no doubt we will have more snow days to capture.
Lately I've been thinking about 2010. What I have accomplished. What I didn't accomplish. Joys. Frustrations. How my yearly goals keep me on track. Recently I've had 2 people tell me, "Jill, you can't do it all. Seriously." Something to think about before I set new goals for 2011. Take a realistic look at what I expect from myself.
