The new year is here and with it an opportunity to revaluate my life, challenges and triumphs. New Years Day of 2010, I decided that I wanted to stop being BitterGurl. No seriously, that was my twitter name back in 2009. There were so many areas of my life that I felt completely unhappy with: my weight, my job, social life and personal relationships just to name a few. So I decided that if I ever wanted to stop being that bitter girl, then I had to do something about it – starting with a twitter name change! And a year later, I can’t even recognize that girl from 2009. Things don’t just magically happen because we make a resolution at the beginning of the year -that’s the easy part! The rest is hard work and discipline. But once I started making some small positive changes (like stop complaining about my weight and joining Weight Watchers instead), everything else seemed to fall right into place. I’m a still a work in progress, but I feel so much happier knowing that I do have control of the direction my life takes! Well this year I want to channel that positive energy towards building my photography business. When I started Mad♥Hearts, it was more on a trial basis to see if this was something I wanted to go full speed ahead with. Well, after a few months of taking on client work and loving it, I’ve decided that I definitely want to continue with it for the long haul. So I plan to focus on making it a legitimate business this year (documenting it here, of course!) and seeing where it takes me from there! So don’t let all the naysarers pooh-pooh your New Year resolutions! Only you can determine if now is the right time to make those changes in your life.
Have a Happy New Year and let’s make 2011 the “sweetest” year yet!!
