Spring clean your mind

Happy Anniversary!

It has only been a year but it feels like I've been doing it my whole life and just started two days ago at the same time. In other words - a little confusing in a good way. There's still a lot to learn, a lot to work on, a lot to achieve but the firsts steps are always the hardest ones. Every morning I remind myself that it is those small steps that lead to big accomplishments. On several occasions I've almost cried (who am I kidding, I DID cry) because I couldn't figure out the settings on my camera or a specific coding for a blog post (because I wanted it to look a certain way), etc. I got out of my comfort zone a lot, stopped being shy in front of the camera in a public place. Overall I learned a lot in that past year. The most important lesson of all - to NEVER EVER give up and if it gets a little frustrating - concentrate on the result instead of all the things that don't go the way you want them to go. All those examples are more on a personal side of the matter though. As for blogging itself I do want to share some wisdom I gathered in the past 12 months. Maybe it will inspire someone else out there to continue or start blogging...
