Happy New Year!

Welcome, 2018!

It is easy to feel energized by the start of the new year. One quick look at your favorite social media sites and inspiration and motivation abound. I love seeing the hope. I love seeing the commitment. I love seeing the possibilities.

And of course, there is no shortage of encouraging quotes to help us be our best selves. :)

I find myself drawn to quotes related to success and happiness and making the world a little better place. When I think of both my work life and my photography, I think of the wise words of Simon Sinek and all his discussions on WHY:
"Happiness comes from WHAT we do. Fulfillment comes from WHY we do it. Fulfillment comes when our work connects directly to our WHY."
Or this:
"The WHY is a tool that can bring clarity to that which is fuzzy, and make tangible that which is abstract. The WHY can guide us to act with purpose, on purpose."

Good stuff, right?

Why do I love what I do? And why do I never feel like I have time for all of the things I think I want to do? I feel a planning session coming on. So many thoughts to ponder.

It's a new year so ask WHY.

Happiest New Year wishes to you for an amazing 2018!
