Happy New Year + January 2012 Goals


I’ve definitely been taking one of my December goals pretty seriously the past few weeks. The whole ‘relaxing’ and enjoying some time off of shooting has been in full swing for me. Hence this blog post being a few days late. The months [and time in general] all flies by so fast, and of course with holidays mixed in there, it goes even faster. I absolutely love the the holiday of New Years Eve and was so excited to spend it up north at our cabin with my friends and family. It is such an exciting time and full of hope, motivation, and excitement. On new years morning i sat with my cup of coffee and while watching the news, watched clips from all the different countries celebrating the new year. How awesome is that that we ALL get so excited and stop for a night and celebrate.

New Years Day is spent thinking, reminiscing, and my favorite, dreaming. We all do it. Look deep within ourselves and think about our accomplishments and our struggles and what we want to change about ourselves. Take a deep breath, take everything in. Even though its just a date, its so inspiring and gives us all a sense of hope because we have a fresh start to change things we’ve been struggling to change. Its like a Monday … times a thousand.

I’m still contemplating on doing a favorites post for 2011, and as far as looking back on the year and blogging about that … I just feel like I’m ready to look forward with life and this business, so we’ll see. It was an amazing and fast moving year and so thankful for all the weddings and portrait sessions I had the opportunity to shoot. Life is crazy.

2012 Goals

Complete my re-branding and launch the new blog
Train my body to become a morning person
Live a healthy lifestyle and daily routine [life balance, eat healthy, workout regularly]
Stick to stricter business hours for Leah Mullett Photography
Read more books
Take more photos of my life
Work on not procrastinating as much [although i do work best under pressure]

January Goals

Evolve my business and branding
Prepare myself for the upcoming wedding season to begin
Work on business finances with accountant
Finish a book
Workout 3-4 times a week

In January I’m really going to be focusing on my health before the wedding season officially begins for me in February and also finish some much needed things around the house and in my life that were neglected this past crazy busy season and year.

If you’re a blogger I would love to read your goals as well, or leave a list of them in the comment section below! You will be much more likely to stick to them if you put them out there for the world to see and to hold you accountable. Happy Thursday! The Vampire Diaries is back on tonight after over a month of a break so I’m pumped today and ready to tackle my to do list!

    I'm a "morning person" (as far as having to wake up early), but I'm still not sure I'll ever be a "morning person". :)
