Forward Thinking

As a friend and I were discussing our excitement about the upcoming year, she told me about this mental exercise to get me thinking about who I want to be. Essentially, think of your next significant birthday (so if you are 38, think 50) and ask yourself these three questions:

What are you doing in your life?
What do you have in your life?
Who are you surrounded by… who is at your birthday party?

And to think I just wanted a mocha and some bal kaymak! But truly, what great questions to ponder for 2014 and beyond!

On a side note, I recently acquired a GoPro. In regards to my photography, I want to get out of my comfort zone and I thought this might be a good first step. Although the light wasn’t so good this morning, I pieced together some of my videos for the final compilation below. If you can make it through the next three minutes and twenty-one seconds, I commend you!
