Well the New Year is fast approaching, which means resolutions. Often times my goal always revolves around losing weight or getting in shape. Of course these goals are never met. Two weeks in I loose my motivation and I fall back in to my old unhealthy habits. The sad part is I have been in this vicious cycle for years and every time I fail, I am left with self doubt.
Recently I watched a Ted Talk that brought me much insight into why my goals were never achieved. Check it out right now...
It made me realize I was setting goals that I really had no control over. My ACTIONS are the only thing I can control. So to bring me back to the New Year I am going to resolve to make EVERYDAY THE ADVENTURE and hopefully in doing so my other goals will simply fall into place. By placing priority on things I love, I will in turn be happier. By making everyday my adventure I will find not only joy when I am out wondering a valley carved by a glacier but also be mesmerized by the goose and duck that frequent my local park. I don't need to fly across an ocean to be filled with joy and happiness, all I need to to learn to to be present in the place that I am.
Who is ready to make everyday the adventure starting January 1, 2018? Let us get it started! Anytime you do, post the photo with the hashtag #MakeEverydayTheAdventure. Let us all start living our lives to their fullest and achieving our goals by not focusing on them.
Everyone has a passion in life, mine is photography mixed with the great outdoors. Though such should come as no surprise since I grew up playing and getting lost in the woods of The Black Hills of South Dakota. Making it only natural that I feel most at home when I am surrounded by mountain peaks and the voices of the animals. I have always wanted to make a difference in this world, I just did not know how I could. I soon realized by documenting our planet I could share my joy with the rest of the world. It is my hope that with my nature photography I will instill the same passion and love that I have for Mother Nature into others. This world we live on is truly an amazing place, but with our personal lives filled with work and stress we often forget to stop and take in the beauty all around us.
