Oh. My. Goodness.
This week’s photo challenge is all about New Horizons. It’s something that’s been on my mind for quite some time and here it is as the prompt for this week’s challenge!
This week, we’re challenging you to think ahead and show your work in a representative photo. If you set New Year’s resolutions, give them some thought a few weeks early. If resolutions aren’t your style, show us something that you want to achieve — it could be setting a new goal, making plans, or even tackling that pile of laundry waiting by the washer. The goal is to get out of the busy “now,” and imagine your new horizon. Go!
I took this photo recently while travelling on the ferry across Sydney Harbour to Manly. It’s something we try to do whenever we visit Sydney. What’s not to love – the warm sunshine, the big blue sky, the harbour, the bridge, the Opera House…all Aussie icons!
I chose to use this photo for the challenge as the open waters through the Sydney Heads are beckoning. There’s unchartered waters out there, nothing in between me and the horizon and the big blue sky is an unmarked canvas.
That’s exactly how I see 2017!
What is in store for 2017, how will I cope with not going to work (having just been made redundant), what am I going to do, who am I going to be????? I’ve written posts recently (well maybe over the past six months) asking myself these very questions. Torturing myself if I’m honest.
The way I see it, 2017 has to be a better year than 2016 so starting with a blank canvas suits me just fine.
This week is a biggie for me – I start the week with my birthday and I end the week with being made redundant after working at the same place for the past 22 years. I know I will be up and down during the week, there’ll be laughter, tears, fun, parties, farewells all culminating in my final day of work. If you’ve been through this sort of thing then I’m sure you’ll understand my emotional state!
I’m getting better at accepting things and I recently set my mantra for 2017.
I’ve decided that 2017 is going to be my year of New Horizons.
Wish me luck as I start this new journey!
