Starting to Flow

I turn 30 today. And while some face this day with trepidation, this is the most exciting time of my life. Here are some things that I am looking forward to in the coming year: 

- Launching a new website(that includes this blog)

- Pursuing what really matters 

- Turning my focus from myself, to others 

I have come to the realization that I'm very capable of focusing on the benefits any situation can provide me. Sometimes even when I think I'm being considerate of others it can turn into a self-satisfying endeavor. My thirtieth year on earth comes with a change of focus, a growth mindset, and a commitment to let the blessings I have received flow through me and into the lives of other people. Personally, I feel like the world could use more positivity and I hope to bring just that to this blog, despite what I might think about circumstances in my life or the lives of those around me. 

I hope to share more frequently (than I have in the past) what is actually on my mind, whether it be about photography, education, life, belief, light, love, or something random. To illustrate the changes I'm hoping to make, let's say that for the majority of my life I have been a "lake" dweller. Lakes absorb their waters, sometimes from many different sources. The next year is about becoming more of a "river" liver. Where my experiences, joy, knowledge, and love flow through me to you, instead of being absorbed for my own benefit. 

Please come a long with me, engage, and become a part of the experience!
