The Irvins | February 2013 Goals

Happy February, Friends!

Chrissy here.  Well, confession time.  Januarys are hard and our (well, my) goals were slightly over-zealous.  Good to know and helpful for future goal-setting.  While it can be tough, I like being humbled, so I admit to you that I did not successfully complete all of my goals.  We did do well on some, though, so we’re excited to celebrate the little victories 🙂

The quote above is such a refreshing one to me.  It is so easy to get caught up in comparison, in the “what’s next,” in fear.  It’s sadly hard to remember to just soak up the beauty around you and receive the moments you are given now as precious ones.  There is always more to do, ways to grow, and things to expand your life and business.  I am striving to thank God for each day that He has given me and being thankful for where He has me now, instead of yearning for something else.

January was a month filled with books read, training, candles, tax education, Wedding Collection revision, connections with other local photographers, cleansing, baking, the addition of many new clients, and for me – completing my study on the Song of Solomon.  It was a busy and fun month, and we look forward to all that February has to offer!
