whatever makes you nervous


I read recently that whenever Michael Jordan steps onto the golf course his buddies always ask him what the bets are on the match, his standard response is "whatever makes you nervous."

I love this. This is what I'll bet on myself this year - whatever makes me nervous.  Not comfortable, not safe. Nervous.

Making this deal with myself has lead me down some pretty great paths already but one thing I must do is make this road a little less cluttered from distractions. I am launching a full force photography & design business this year - not just going with the flow like years past. I am getting married! I have some big things coming up and I need to focus on quality time with my loved ones. After my 365 is over I will not be spending unnecessary time online. I will be promoting my life with healthy choices and taking what I've learnt this year to push further into my career.

So where does that leave us? Well I will no longer be a regular muse but an on call and sporadic one instead, I will pop in here and there as the other ladies might need a break from their regular posts. One of the things that pushes me to be a better photographer is this community and the land of flickr. Something that I am so very grateful for. Soooooo, who's going to be my replacement?!? This is the exciting part!!!!!

Christy of Urban Muser is going to take the gig. yay! We are so very excited to welcome her on board with us. Her take on life in NYC is amazing & she will be sure to add some spice to this amazing group of ladies.

thanks for everything,
we'll see you soon!
