a new year, a new journal & new resolutions!

After deliberating and talking about a new space for my blog for over a year, with the start of a new year comes new life resolutions and one of mine is to finally start doing everything I've been putting off and to give Passion a go.

At the end of last year I made the decision to leave architecture and commit full time to photography and all the things that I've wanted to do (but never found the time to).  It's a scary decision but I'm hoping that with a positive attitude, hard work and lots of self motivation anything is possible. We're only here temporarily and I couldn't waste another minute feeling as though I wasn't doing what my heart drives me to do.

This year is going to be exciting. It's the year that I'm going to give everything I've ever wanted to do a go! I'm not going to let my nerves or self consciousness hold me back nor think or worry about failure. I will battle negative thoughts with bright positive light! No one can make our dreams come true but us right? ;)
