What's New for 2010?

This year, 2009, was a very challenging year for me. In fact, I would say it has been one of the hardest and most emotional ones yet. Although it had it's bad moments, something good came out of it which I am grateful for. Now it's time to turn the page and look forward to a new chapter.

With that said, we have our eyes set onto a new year and some of us may have new goals or resolutions to make. I am no different. Only different thing for me is that this year my new years resolution has nothing to do with weight. Thank. Goodness! No, this year it is a goal rather than a new years resolution. I'm tired of making resolutions that are unrealistic so I plan on making reasonable goals instead.
So, here are my goals for 2010:

God is our refuge and strength Pictures, Images and Photos

~ Make my life more committed to this Awesome God we have! He has been so good to me and now that I am a mom and having a child in today's world scares me. I want her to be happy and enjoy her life. I know she will have her ups and downs but I want her to know that not only can she turn to me or her daddy but in those times we don't have the answer, she can turn to God. He will help her and get her through her trials as he has done for me. First things first though, I need to make a change and set that example so that she can see that change and want that for herself.

love photography stuff Pictures, Images and Photos

~Make something more of my photography. Now that I got the new editing program, Lightroom 2 for Christmas, I want to see what other things I can do. Although I'm not big on editing pictures, I feel there are some things that I can get out of this program and I look forward to exploring.

~ Not just talk about for once but actually go to Mendocino. Camera in hand. We have talked over the past few years about going here but we've never actually made it there. With me being a huge lover of the ocean, this is a place that would be so me. Recently I read a blog that had pictures of it and reminded me again why I want to go there so bad. It's not like I need to travel so far. I mean, I'm probably only a few hours away. In fact, one of our friend's go all the time so why is it so hard for us, who love to go places, having so much trouble actually getting there? No clue but this year, I plan on booking an ocean view room and enjoying some R&R!


What are your 2010 New Years Resolutions?

Head on over to Mama Kat's as this is one of her prompts this week.

I'm gonna follow your lead and not make any resolutions that involve "weight". Thanks for the insightful idea.
The love you have for your child is GREAT. God honors those who seek him. It's gonna be a great year for you!!

WOW! Great minds think alike....or maybe it's just that AWESOME God of ours reminding us what's truely important! Glad to have "met" you today!
Here's praying we both find 2010 in His Light!

Love your idea of making reasonable goals instead! We can all work at improving our personal relationship with God, that's the best one!

Actually we did pretty good with our 2009 resolutions:

We'll be working on 2010's tonight.

I too am ready for this new year to begin. I can't wait to see what it has in store.

Wishing you a Blessed New Year!

Jessica said...

I love both of your ideas about being committed to God and making more out of your photography! I think both of those things are something to be explored in my life as well!

Thank you for sharing your meaningful list! Loved it!

My resolutions are often the same: be more patient, read more, learn more, do more for others.

I wish you all the best on your resolutions for 2010. I hope you get to make the trip. It is funny how sometimes the places closest to us are the ones we never get around to visiting.

I'm also not making any resolutions this year... just one goal: to live my life to the fullest.

As for photography, it looks like you have quite a talent (judging from all your pics on your blog!); you'll do great to make that into a business!
