Happy New Year! Wow…where did 2012 go? The last few months flew by.
Every first day of each year I reflect back on the year before and try to see if there are any major changes I want to incorporate into the new year. I try to think of things I want to improve or change and make those part of my life going forward. That’s of course a process that goes on throughout the year but it’s fun to start the new year with at least one new goal. Some people call it a resolution.
Looking back at 2012 I already know one thing I want to work on. I want to take more photos and capture life as it goes by so I decided to start taking one photo each day of either the sunrise or the sunset as I love those. Or, on days when I don’t capture the beautiful sunrises or sunsets then to photograph something that made me go “wow” and that made me smile.
This is the sunset this morning on January 1, 2013.
The photo does not do justice to the amazingly bright sun shining through the clouds but it certainly set the tone for my day. Just seeing that made me say wow and smile. I love those small moments that amazes me. Every day I am amazed at something and how it affects my life in a positive way.
I hope that on this first day of 2013 that you look back at 2012 and make goals to change the things you want to change but that you also remember to focus on the smaller things in life and those moments that sweeps you away. When it all comes down to it, those are often the moments we remember the most.
Cheers to a great year going forward!
