Back around the new year I had really great intentions for starting the 365 project. I was quite excited about it in fact. Excited to get back to that place where I am strapped to my camera and I wonder how everything would look through its lens, but alas, I am calling a fail. Now before anyone tells me to not feel like a failure, don't worry, I don't. I am always failing in most of my first attempts at everything I try. I like to look at more as trial runs. I also mentioned back during the new year that I don't much like new years resolutions, well that is why. If you "fail" at a resolution it feels so final, like you have to wait all through the year to try again. On top of that I am in such a fog after the holidays I usually have no idea what I need/want to do to for the new year, my only goal on January first is usually to get my holiday decorations put away and stop eating so many cookies.
I have every intention of trying the 365 again well before the new-new year rolls 'round but with the week spent on my sofa with the flu I missed days and days of photographs and truth be told by about day three of the project my heart just wasn't in it anymore. But now I know what to expect so next time I can call it a success. I have hope anyway. Right now I am thinking that my heart is more aimed at committing to the 40 bags in 40 days challenge, this is where you get rid of 40 bags of stuff in 40 days (I have at least half that many bags packed in my closet ready to go). That I can do and I need to do and I am actually really, really excited to put that plan in action. Have any of your new years intentions taken a new direction or a nose-dive?
