So, THAT happened. I turned 42 yesterday. I’ve actually kind of been waiting for this. It’s not a big deal number but it feels like a big deal birthday. It feels like a shift. 41 was such a year of change for me, even though that might not be obvious to others. Nothing in my external world has changed. I have the same job and the same home. In fact, most things around me are exactly the same as they were one year ago. It is me that has changed. This has been a huge year for me, in terms of getting in touch with, embracing and finally living my authentic self. It hasn’t been easy but I can really say that I am in the best, happiest place I have ever been.
This past year has felt a bit like a staging period — like the prep time before the big show. I’m excited to see what next year holds. I’ve also decided to document this next year in a special way. I’m doing a “365” project, which means I will be taking (editing and posting) a photo each day. Photography has become such a huge part of my life in this past year. I think that getting in touch with my creativity behind (and sometimes in front of) the camera has been transformative for me. It has also brought me an amazing tribe of women who encourage and inspire me on a constant basis.
In gratitude for all that has come my way in the past year and wishing for the grace to welcome what’s to come here is photo 1/365.
