#PhotographIt Day Two

Another week of the #PhotographIt challenge where my journalism class posts a photo answering a prompt. This week, “Today’s Challenge: We often spend so much time looking at the BIG picture that we miss the details. Look closer.”

Thoughts on 2016

It’s been a month since 2016 ended and I’ve taken the time since to really think about what I learned.

  • I lost a lot of myself last year but I also found myself in different ways.
    • Some things you need to let go, other things you wish you didn’t.
  • I went through a lot of self-improvement but there’s a lot to go to be my best self.
  • Letting go of people can be hard.
    • You don’t always succeed.
  • I am selfish
    • That’s OK.
  • I’m an individual. I come first to myself.
    • That’s OK too.
  • Accepting all parts of yourself is hard. I’ve come to terms with things I learned about myself but I have to keep trying.
    • You always have to keep trying.

What I learned has resulted in some goals for the new year.

  • Be my best self.
    • Things take time.
  • Be more productive.
    • Stop saying “later.”
  • Make and complete to-do lists.
    • Actually complete these.
  • Drink a relaxing tea every night.
    • Go to sleep earlier.
