Taking stock of your year can be a daunting experience, especially if you feel you haven’t accomplish any of the things you wanted or haven’t “lived enough”. I’ve been there. It is not fun to look at yourself honestly & to admit that you didn’t do anything because YOU didn’t do anything. But, realizing you are what is standing in your own way is the first step to getting out of your own way.
I think most people agree that 2016 has not been the greatest year. With the deaths, the wars, the terror attacks, the crazy politicians. I can attest that on a personal side that has 2016 definitely had some very low points.
2016 kicked me in the ass. 2016 got me so low that I cried in my kitchen after the 20th rejection in a never-ending job search, drank too much wine & feared how I was going to pay for the basics in life. Even after the ass-kicking that was 2016, I choose to focus on the positives of the year as I believe that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
As we say farewell to 2014, I wanted to do one last post on a favourite photographic subject of mine this year – Doorways.
This past year I found myself drawn to doorways. I found myself fascinated by the design of each doorway I came across and found myself wondering what inspired the design? What made them choose this color? What does this door revel about what is inside?
I came to conclude that 2014 was a transitional year for me, one in which I found myself looking at the different doors in front of me. Wondering what was behind them and if I should go through this one? Or that one? But, mostly I was looking for the right door to walk through.
As a tribute to 2014, I wanted to share the unposted doorways of 2014.
