I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions. I find I don’t keep them. I’m not interested in it. It’s something that feels unattainable and that I’m putting too much pressure on myself. This year, I am not doing a New Year’s Resolution, but I am trying a couple things. I’m trying Project 365, and I’m trying the ‘One Word’ approach. Picking one word to apply to my life this year.
So today, when they inspiration word of ‘resolution’ came through I knew that it was going to have to be my one word related. However, ‘patience’ is sort of hard to photograph. I thought about it, and really came to the conclusion that I would print the word out on paper, and photograph that. Then, I was having a crap day at work. Things were not going right. I was in a blah mood. So I shot out of work and went to the beach. It was a beautiful sunny day, and there wasn’t a wave anywhere.
Then, I saw three people way out on paddle boards. I don’t live in an area where we see a lot of that, and I thought, how perfect. Patience is required to paddleboard. I needed the patience to sit out and enjoy the beach. So, that’s my picture.
