i was looking over my goals that i’ve set for 2016 and i figured it was time to check in.
it’s so easy to forget what i wanted to focus on this year – and when the months start to bleed together i can easily loose sight of all that has unfolded.
chill | i’ve definitely chilled more. i recently had a a few situations come up up where the old amy would have reacted on a 10 scale – and i’ve reacted closer to a 6. i think the Lord is doing a mighty work in my spirit – doing some refining – and using a few different people in my life (*cough* eddie for sure *cough*) to remind me that everything doesn’t have to get under my skin. not only that but i’ve seen the Lord strip some things away from me – and i’m not that upset about it…if He wants me to slow down some, i can!
photography | a love photography is growing. i think i’ve put more effort into getting my name out there and trying new things. i’ve hit a slump recently and have literally set up 6 (!!) free sessions to just meet new people, try out new techniques, and really polish up some of the rust off! one of my favorite sessions so far this year was this family session of some of my sweet friends! <3 i need to share it over on this blog too!
be active | i’m a smidge frustrated with myself on this one. i’m still at this place where i’m trying to get back to goal weight. i SEE where i’ve made the slackness a part of my daily life – and i’ve come to accept that i will never be the person where weight-loss comes easy. i’ll have to always hustle – so i’m back to hustling.
explore | YES! man this year has been a great year for exploring! hiking in cleveland sc, hiking ceasars head, york maine, acadia national park and portsmouth maine, kittery maine, the white mountains in new hampshire, and sooooo many other random exploring adventures!
be goofy | i think i have definitely had my moments of goofiness this year! i could definitely cut a few more strings loose and just get lost in the crazy 😉
rejoice | i have definitely been making more of a conscious effort to be joyful for the moments God has given me – and man He has provided some amazing moments of rejoicing. deep conversations with friends, getting engaged, traveling, seeing family and friends accomplish great things, and so much more
how are you doing on your year goals (did you make any)?
i’m glad i took this moment to kind of “check in” because let’s keep it real it’s easy to forget what all we want to get done in the beginning of a year.
