Today was my first day back to work after being on vacation last week. I feel refreshed. I feel like I purged a few demons. Good thing is.. I still have about almost 3 weeks vacation left, one of which will be spent on a cruise! 😉

This didn’t come out quite the way I thought, but here it is nonetheless. It’s for our podcast mini challenge of "The Number 365"

Back when I started my project, I didn’t really understand what I had before me. It was really just a simple little thing that was going to take me a year to do and that might also track my hair loss over that year… I’m only half joking. But I soon began to realize what it was doing for me.

The 365 Days project forced me to take a second look at the way I viewed myself and the world around me. I discovered things that I both liked and disliked about myself and because of that I think I made some solid choices to improve my life.

The side benefit was that I was becoming more creative and developing my skills as a photographer. The work I was doing was getting noticed more and it led to a lot of freelance work and consequently I think, the job I have today.

After getting hired for the job and moving to Montgomery, there was another side benefit, the 365 Group. In August, Mav discovered my stream and things haven’t been the same since. I’ve met a lot of good friends and feel like I’ve been able to pass on some some of the things that I’ve learned… which is extremely satisfying.

Will I continue after this year is up? I don’t know. I quit after my first year believing that I had completed my new years resolution and that there wasn’t any real point to doing it again. But here I am 2 years later with you again. This year has been more about the photography and reconnecting with you guys that it has been about self-discovery, but I’m finding out that I’m learning even more about myself than back in ’06… so we’ll see.

More importantly, I’m just glad that I have you guys around this time. January to August 2006 was a lonely time for 365.
