Motivation or lack there of!

Motivation has been hard this week. Last week I got so much done. I gave 4 bags of "very nice'" clothes I don't wear anymore to Goodwill, 2 bags of books and a handful of shoes as well. It felt so good to give it away to those who need it, and to get it out of the house. I can't stand clutter and lack of organization. I also worked out and did "two a day" workouts 3 out of the 5 days. I have yet to workout this week. I have one more day to remedy that and go walk a few miles. I think I will.

I have also been trying to shoot more and try to learn my camera. ( Nikon DSLR) thanks to lifelong photographer friends...Jeff and Dana Sipper). You can visit their website at http://www.sipperphotography.com/. They have upgraded their equipment and sold me the Nikon D70 that I'm hoping to learn on my own. I am so addicted to photography blogs and the photojournalistic aspect. I love that style and hope to master it. Too bad wedding photojournalism wasn't on the forefront back in 2003 when I got married. There's always the renewal of vows!!! (which will happen...hopefully on a beach, barefoot, with a flower in my hair)

I also love all aspects of design...so I'm hoping to get involved in interior design/fashion/typography at some point. Not sure what I like the most. I'm a lover of all things Stationery!!! (Started with my frequent trips to the Hello Kitty Store on 5th Ave. in Brooklyn). My mom used to take us there and let us choose a few items. I would buy notepads, stationery, pencils, erasers, etc. I would NEVER use them. I didn't want to write on them or get them dirty. I loved the style/design and that they were "new".

Anyway, hopefully I will be energized and motivated to start a new chapter in my life and do things that I enjoy and get excited about!!

Cheers to that!

Thanks for the shout out to Sipper Photography! Hang in there girl...all things worth having take time as I have come to realize. Figure out what it is you want to follow and find out what steps you need to take to make it happen. Life is too short to not enjoy what we do, I learned that the hard way. So, follow your dreams and anything you need those lifelong friends will be there to support ya!
