Self Portrait I September

What? It’s already October? Fall my favorite season is at its peak and I feel like summer was just yesterday. I can’t believe my schedule is pretty much stacked with travel, MTH2010, and weddings straight until the holidays. Don’t get me wrong. I am totally grateful and blessed. It just is almost comical when you look at my calendar.

Me update? September flew by. I am still stumbling in the area of keeping up with a good schedule, but being that I have gotten up at 6am the last two days for a big corporate shoot and not needed a nap. I am giving myself a big high five! I remember seeing this post from Lara last month and it made me look back at a set of goals that I put together in early February. I framed this set of goals for 2010 with an outline that Sarah had mentioned, setting goals in three categories Realistic, Ambitious and Audacious. Within each of those categories have bullet points to list off of :: Immediate Goals, Creative goals, Financial goals, Long term development goals & Personal goals.

After reviewing my goal list I was blown away that I had met most if not all of my goals, even in the audacious category(like being published in a national magazine). BUT, and I give you a big capital BUT because. None, I mean not one of my personal goals (i.e. anything to do for me) I met. Things like taking better care of my body, daily prayer time,  getting back into my workout routine, going to bed at a decent hour, etc.  Again, super grateful and proud at all of the business and finiancial accomplishments I have made. But ladies and gentlemen, none of it matters if you aren’t well or fulfilled down to your core.

So I have refocused my goals for the last three months of 2010 and I am excited to face these challenges head on. Thank you for letting me talk it all out with you. I hope to share more of my goals in my next post.

Also, I have been having a blast dabbling in video lately and I am looking at putting together a lifestyle packages session with stills & video. What a better way to share my self portrait this month than a little video that Julia my wonderful intern and I shot in for about an hour in my neighbors and my yard. Oh and don’t mind the nerd self portraits below.
