Where did the year go? Wasn’t it just January yesterday? That’s how I feel. I’ll wake up tomorrow and everyone around me will be playing Christmas songs. Slow down! Did your year move fast too? Since we’re already into the last half of 2019, I thought I would take a moment to look back on what I have accomplished this year.
At first glance, it doesn’t seem like much being that January was just yesterday. Still let me take a look back. In January I was able to shoot two commercials before eloping, honeymooning, and then heading to Superbowl Live for a ten day gig. That was a busy month.
February moved in slow motion. It’s the shortest month of the year but it felt like the longest. March through July were basically one month. Though during that time I was able to add a few more clients to my promo resume and meet some wonderful people at tradeshows. I ran into some of my favorite artists/actors while working background and going to auditions. I was even able to sneak two more getaways in.
Now that I’m looking back I see I have actually made some moves this year and I am adding to my calendar every day. I woke up feeling somewhat defeated by time but that was the wrong attitude. That’s something else I have been working on this year, perspective. Someone told me I should approach tasks with the perspective of “I get to” instead of “I have to.” It’s a way to find positives in things I otherwise wouldn’t. I could easily focus on things that went awry but that does not benefit me. In fact, it harms me. Instead I choose to shift my focus elsewhere.
That’s how I plan to spend the rest of the year, focusing on the positive. Whether the rest of this year flies by or drags on I will make it my goal to find good in each day. Some days may be a challenge but I happily accept that challenge. I am so looking forward to what is ahead waiting for me. May you spend the rest of the year getting to do things that you love.
