Oh January. You feel like a blank canvas. It's the time when everyone gets a chance to officially think about themselves by grabbing a piece of paper and writing things they'd like to change or improve in their lives. For some, it's easy and challenging, for others it's a burden. You definitely need to find motivation to make those resolutions a success!
Most of people don’t really like those new year’s to-do lists, either because they don’t know what to wish for or they prefer not to think about the future. Stop kidding yourself, you can always improve in something or learn new tricks. There are always little things you wish you could do, so roll up your sleeves and hold on to your panties, you're up for a ride. You have so many aspects of your life to work on: travel, business, health, habits… It should be easy to find a way to think outside of the box, open your mind and get creative. HAVE FUN!
The new you can take its time.
There is nothing more frustrating than making unachievable goals. Forget about going to the gym 5 times a week, learning a new language in 2 weeks or eating avocados only (the good fat!). Find in your mind or heart what you really care about, make it your Super Goal and then break it down into smaller tasks.
You will find it a lot easier to fulfill and this will make you happy, we guarantee that.
What about us?
Indeed, it is easy to give advice to people. The question is do we have good resolutions at Scandaleuse? Of course we do:
• Develop our wedding division
After shooting weddings for others, we finally opened our own wedding studio back in November and our main goal is to make it grow just like our boudoir.
• Work on getting a studio
Do we know anything about real estate? No. Should we in order to get an office space sooner than later? Absolutely.
• Keep traveling and working abroad
We've had a blast in Europe for the past month. Having a chance to shoot there and make it a yearly thing is our biggest goal.
• Invest in new photo gear
And stop drolling over that 85mm 1.4. We're coming for you. Just wait.
• Add more Scandals to our family
We have met so many fascinating people since we opened and we can't wait to add more to the list. We actually worked on 8 shoots in 4 weeks, which is a first, so get ready to see more boobies around here!
• Make more projects come to life.
Between Boudoir Bash (next on on January 20!), The Boudoir Circus, Model Call and couple sessions, we still have a lot of ideas. We even wrote a little guide on dealing with creative funk, to start off well!
• Visit San Francisco
It's been a dream of ours to go to SF for.... 6 years. (We want to see the house from Charmed but don't tell anyone.) Living in Europe, it was a lot more ocmplicated, but now in Toronto, you'd think it'd be easier. It is indeed, it's just the amount of $$$ that is just as big.
• Keep working on becoming aerial silks ninjas
4 years of this lovely circus activity and counting!
These are the main ones we have, and we will keep adding them throughout the year. Because yes, January is not the only time to work on yourself.
What about you Scandals, what are your 2018 resolutions?
