So much happened this year and yet I feel like I didn't do enough creatively. I was conscious of the fact that for most of 12 months I was holding back. Some of it was on purpose—certainly during the summer. I really wanted to be with the kids. I didn't want to be half there. When I look at the chronology of these photos I can see that it affected my work. But I'm perfectly fine with that.
What I'm not ok with is with the part of holding back that was born out of self-doubt. I second guessed myself a lot in 2010. The good thing about that is that I do have record of all my ideas that never surfaced publicly. I have a lot to start the year off with.
In light of all this, I think my new year will be all about just going for it. I will be fearless. This is something that I've been subconsciously thinking about in the last few weeks—Ali's One Little Word post cemented it for me. I'm really looking forward to what will be coming.
I want to sincerely thank all of you that have stopped by. I truly appreciate your encouraging words and generous support. As I write those last words they don't seem quite enough. You really don't know how your messages and comments truly fill me up. Thank you. Thank you. You're all awesome.
Be safe, be merry and I'll see you in 2011! Happy New Year!
