So last week, I posed a challenge to do something for you sometime during the week. It could have been anything so long as it was for your benefit. Let's face it, as women/mothers/wives, we tend to put ourselves last, but what kind of an example is that? I want my girls to know that who they become as people is just as important as the roles they will eventually play. I wear the hats of wife and mother, but it's not who I am. If I wasn't either of those things, would I cease to exist?
I don't know if anyone accepted the challenge, but I sincerely hope so. My goal last week was to enter some of my photography at the local fair. I received a new camera for my birthday last year and I've been having lots of fun with it. A few weekends ago, our front yard became a dragonfly haven, so I hurried outside with my new camera in tow. Taking the photos was a cool experience, but editing them was even more enjoyable. I think I may even enlarge a few of them to frame and put around the house.
Yesterday was the deadline for fair entries, so after preparing my photos, I headed down there and entered them. A friend of mine also told me about a garden photography contest that our local paper is hosting. So I entered that one too. It doesn't matter if I win, that wasn't the point. I wanted to share a growing passion of mine and if someone else could appreciate it too, then that's just an added bonus. By taking the time, I've found a new hobby that I really enjoy.
This week, my goal is to help design and edit a webpage for a friend of mine. I don't have a whole lot of experience in this area, but the things I have dabbled in, I've enjoyed. So I'll be carving out some more me time and I also have a planned ladies night out with some friends.
What will you do this week?
