Focus on the Good, Capture the Best

How cute is this little camera Zachary made from his Lego he got for Christmas?

It's almost New Year and a time where resolutions are made, plans are laid out and we look ahead to what a brand new year has in store for us.

I'm not one for resolutions. Not because I'm arrogant and think there isn't anything about myself I could improve, because there is plenty. I don't make them because I don't see the point in setting these resolutions just because it's a new year. I give myself goals to reach throughout the year and I find this is a more realistic way to achieve what I want to achieve.

As a person, I try to focus on the good and positive things in life. I can't be bothered with negativity and drama. Life is far to short to dwell on things you can't change or can't control. Of course, when unexpected things are thrown at me, I do panic a bit but I'm always looking for the "everything happens for a reason" and it leading to greater things. For example, I left a job of 10 years in the financial industry because they were forcing us all to change our hours. At first I panicked and then saw it as an opportunity to do something I really wanted to do. Two years down the line, I have a full time job doing something I love. I really enjoy my job and it's enabled us to be financially secure and comfortable as a family. If my old employer hadn't forced us to change our hours, I could have still be there, stuck in a rut.

Life is about living your life, making and capturing as many memories as possible. I love the excitement of what a new year will hold for us and the many opportunities we will have to make amazing memories with our children.
