A very frosty day

Hello 2017!

With 2 New Year’s in January, I felt a little cheeky and decided to post this in the middle of January rather than at the beginning of the year.

As with every new year, there are so many things I want to do, see, eat, read, photograph etc. The opportunities are endless, but the number of days remains the same. I’m always amazed with what I manage to fit in every year, especially last year when I entered the world of full time employment.

There are a few things that have already changed, such as the name of this blog. Every year I try and specify a theme, so that I have something to aim for rather than doing new year’s resolutions in the middle of winter and failing part way through. Obviously due to some platforms being so popular it was hard to rebrand everything, but I’m glad that I could do the blog and my account on 500px, as these are the main places I want to focus on.

This year I won’t be restricting myself in what I write, even though when I first started it seemed like a really good idea to only do photography. I choose ‘Becoming Wise’ for the renaming of my blog because I am always learning, regardless of the medium or if I write up about that specific project. This process has really allowed me to reflect on the actions that I take and learn from.

This post isn’t so much a new resolution, as many have done. I always take longer to decide and when I do take actions, they aren’t necessarily new. It’s more tweaking how I currently live and the actions that I consciously take. However, I have started to build a list of all the things that I would like to make, visit, eat, see and connect with. I am always looking for things that allow me to step out of my comfort zone, so stay tuned and I hope this will also be a journey for you too.
