My One Word...Strive

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing you a wonderful, happy and healthy 2014 going forward from up here at my beach home...

You've probably seen this all over social media, but many are choosing one word to focus on for the year and to make changes based on that word...rather than a litany of resolutions that can sometimes overwhelm. My chosen word is "strive". Strive to be the best ME that I can be and only compete within myself to do so in every aspect of daily living...
 
It's often easy when you are on social media to look at others and their lives and accomplishments...photos of their spectacular homes, gorgeous families, beautiful vacations, perfect friends.....and get caught up in that. I do not and will not, although I do enjoy seeing and knowing....I tend to go my own way and follow my own path. "Strive"....to be the best ME that I can....
I have felt from a very young age that we all have a purpose when put on this planet and without getting too deep here...that my purpose is bringing beauty. Creating with eyes wide open and self focused on seeing something beautiful in each and every day, and sharing...
Strive...to capture beauty in my life, home, world...and bring it out in the open through the eyes of the camera...
My next blog post will be my 500th! I'll be doing a lovely GIVEAWAY, so please check back...
xoxo,
Janet
