Happy New Year to everyone everywhere!!!! My wish for all is that this year will bring peace, joy, and happiness to ALL !
For myself, I have many things I wish to explore, see, do, and conquer. I hope to practice my hobby of photography and to share those images here for those who are interested. I want to chronicle my learning process and by “following” others to be inspired to try new things and learn new ways of becoming more creative myself.
Self-expression is the key to this challenge for myself-there are so many things I wish to “dabble” in. I was born during a time and in a place where I was not encouraged to follow my dreams until I found the right fit for me rather I was taught to be practical and let tomorrow take care of itself. My parents were not dreamers therefore they didn’t have HOPE for a better tomorrow I was not encouraged to dream big or too look at this wonderful planet we live on and see ADVENTURE! Thankfully, I have had the desire deep in my soul to dream quietly for myself and was able to keep a little bit of that hope locked in a secret place in my heart that I’m now ready to throw the door open and discover what is inside!
I now have two young daughters who I am determined and destined to provide them the opportunity to grow up to explore, discover, and find those things and talents in life that will bring them true JOY, I picture them as young girls who are beginning their individual paths to find their own dreams to fuel their self discoveries!
I have not been a person who easily opens up to others but this seems like a great forum to explore the sides of me that have not been encouraged to shine. I am very much a people person and have taken care of others for most of my teen and adult life and as I age a voice inside of me wishes to show the same care and encouragement I’ve given to others to myself.
I am open to change and excited to see where this year takes me it is my adventure of 2012 and it begins today…….
