So, I need a plan. A big plan. A gigantic plan actually. I need to focus more on me, my family and my photography business.
I already have some things set in motion that take away some of the every day stress that really shouldn't be eating at me, and I want to get back into some things that have dissipated for no good reason:
--Money is always a huge deal, and I think it's that way for a lot of people. I've taken some small steps in hopes at getting us at a better place financially. I'm looking forward to see where we are in a few months.
--I need to make a fitness plan that works for me. I know I want it to consist of a running/walking plan, and there are some seriously awesome and amazing people that I can turn to with questions and advice! These girls are super inspiring, and if I'm lucky enough to be half as awesome as them, I know I'm doing something right.
--Eating right is another thing that I really need to get back into. With all that's happened, and with how busy I have been, I've let the healthy eating slip away. I know it's OK to have a free day, but, when you're free day turns into your every day, that's a problem. I need to buckle down and do this for myself.
--Take more pictures for 'me.' I take a ton of pictures, but, they are always for other people. I need to take more time and venture out, and just take pictures for the pure enjoyment that it brings. I love doing this, and need to make an effort to do it more.
As far as focusing more on my family, I really want to take advantage of our time together, especially since Ryder is getting older. We can do more things as a family, and I really want to concentrate on what those things are. Once the weather is nicer, I know it'll be easier to do this (RDub loves being outside) but, until then I have to come up with fun stuff to do inside (game night anyone?!) Spending as much quality time as I can with my boys is so incredibly important to me. They are my world. :-)
I can't wait for the warmer weather so we can do this kind of stuff more often!
I have so many ideas for my photography business, I really have no idea where to begin. Things are going very well, but, I really want to kick things up another notch. I can safely say I've done this on the wedding aspect (10 weddings booked this year!!!) but I want to kick things up in other areas, like with newborn photography and attracting more seniors to the business. I need to get some marketing tactics in line, and do some other things to amp up my business...but, that takes a lot of money too. I just need to take it one step at a time. It's so hard when you have so many ideas, and have a clear vision of where you want to be, but have no idea where to start because of the dolla' billz and the resources. If I had more time, I would totally be a DIY junkie, which would make things so much easier and money friendly!
Sorry for the lengthy post guys! Once I turn it on, it's hard to turn it off...
Did that sound dirty...? If so, I'm ok with it.
Have a great Friday, and an even better weekend! I'm hoping the snow stays for at least a day so Ryder can enjoy for a little while. We'll see....seeing as I live in Illinois, it could very well be 60 degrees tomorrow. I wish I was kidding.
