Project 365 - 2017 - Day 365

As 2017 comes to an end, I’m finishing off the year with a photo from last week, when I was still at Walt Disney World, watching the fireworks from the beach at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.

2017 has been an incredibly tough, bittersweet year. I am so very happy to close the door on it at midnight, and am looking forward to 2018 where my mantra will be CHANGE.

I’ve been rolling in the same crap for too many years now, doing the same thing over and over and it not making a difference, so it’s time for everything to change. That’s work, home, and within myself.


I will not be carrying on with Project 365 in 2018. After 6 years of doing it, and 1 year of Project 52; enough is enough! I don’t want to have the stress of having to share a photo a day/week/month. I just want to BE. I know I can turn out some amazing photos, so I don’t need to validate myself this way any more. I have big plans for myself, and for my blog in the new year, and I need to focus on those, rather than worrying if people like a picture I post on

I foresee 2018 being a big, awesome year, and I will be ending it on the highest of highs!

I’ve been taking part in Project 365 – a photo a day for one year, since 2011. I took a break in 2016, but couldn’t leave the photography project behind completely, and so did Project 52 – a photo a week for one year. I decided at the very last moment, that I would come back to Project 365 for 2017, because I have missed it more than I realised! The project, over the years, has not only helped to improve my photography, but it also became an daily photo diary. I love looking back and remembering the days of the year(s) gone by, and that is one of the biggest things I missed at the end of 2016,

I have quite the archive of photos on my blog, which you can take a peek at below.
