Goals for 2014

This post was meant to be posted in January. As you can tell, that did not happen. Enjoy!

This is not a post about New Year’s resolutions. In fact, I do not believe in them. Here is why, only 8% of people who make New Year’s resolutions stick to them. If they do stick to them it will last only a week and I would bet most people are out of the game by the end of January. However, I do like setting goals and January is an ideal time to reevaluate your life goals.

I set goals for myself that are realistic and unrealistic. I am not setting myself up to fail but setting an unrealistic goal helps me strive for something better. In that scenario it tends to be about the journey of getting to that point. I may never attain that goal but I will learn something about myself in the process. With that said, you do have to be cautious about setting unrealistic goals. For example, I cannot lost 50 pounds in one week. That would be unrealistic and I would be setting myself up to fail.

I have broken down my goals into different categories to help with organization. Without further ado, here is my list.

I am revisiting Honduras but I am not there in person. I am sitting in front of my computer¬†reminiscing¬†about my previous trips. My first trip to Honduras was in 2010 with Vineyard Westside. People who experience a trip like this will always say “My life is changed and will never be the same.” In my […]

This was my last photo session that I did. The one thing I remember from this day is that it was hot… really hot. It was challenging at times since kids in general hate posing for photos plus the heat factor did not make it any easier. It was important to try to keep it fun and relaxed. Overall they did a great job. Enjoy the pics!

Around the Farm

Before we headed out to the mountains we did some work around the farm or the mission base. This is where teams arrive and are stationed before they leave for the mountains. At this point in the trip we still have beds, toilets and showers. No flushing of the TP permitted and it is recommended that everyone takes three minute showers to conserve the hot water. There is a possibility of scorpions climbing under the sheets… so nightly inspections are required.

A long time has passed since the Honduras trip. It has taken me awhile to process and get to the point where I want to write about the experience on my blog. A large part of the men’s trip is to challenge ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually. We get plenty of opportunity to do all […]

Occasionally friends ask me to snap some photos of them and for a small fee I oblige them. This is not my business and I am not a professional photographer. Photography is a hobby of mine and a passion. I think I am good it but this is the one passion that I want to […]
