Looking back over February, I definitely made some strides towards my goals. But the main thing that I focused on was:
The main thing that February brought was an entire month free of client work. I helped friends out, caught up on work, and did some activities that stretched my creative skills. Okay. I know what you are thinking. Heather, you didn’t do client work? WHY? Because I needed a recharge. I don’t have the luxury of relaxing as many other full-time photographers do. I love what I do and in order to keep that fire alive, I have to put restrictions on myself so I can remind myself why I do what I do. It’s kind of like eating too much candy. It’s great when you start out, but if you eat too much at once, you get sugar overloaded!

My March Goals
But first, let me explain this month’s quote. Lately, I have been resenting my situation, and I knew I was being idiotic for it. I couldn’t think of a quote that would describe what I’m feeling, so I did what any average girl would do. I searched for it
