Reflecting on 2014

by Kelly

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards. ~ Søren Kierkegaard

It's that time of year right?  Cable programming full of 'best of' shows.  Radio counting down the top hits of the past year.  News programs highlighting the big stories from the 2014.

I guess it's in our nature...as we come to the end of something, to take a moment for one last look at what came before.

It's the same for me interms of my photography.   I always enjoy looking through the years' photos. To appreciate what I think I've done pretty well, to look for areas to improve.

But it's not a just a practice in my photography... it's also something I look to do in my personal life. Because I have often found that the stories of my life make the most sense when looked through the rear view mirror.

As 2014 winds down, all of us here at Focusing on Life would like to express our sincere gratitude to you.  For being part of our family.  For so generously sharing yourself and your art. We are so blessed and so inspired by you and we hope that you will continue along with us as we venture into a new year.

Happy New Year dear friends!

Love, Kelly

Looks like you had a fabulous year and I love the idea of 'reflecting' on the year past. Happy New Year to you and to all of our FOL family. We are indeed grateful for you!

Love your reflection shots, and yes to reflecting on our year past. So glad that you were part of my year Kelly. Here's to a happy, healthy and love filled New Year!! And I second Kelly's thoughts on being thankful for all of you - you truly inspire all of us, and for that we thank you.

So many great reflections captured throughout your year! Taking stock of where we've been is always a good idea before we venture forward and I think these last few days of the year are perfect for that. Thanks for the reminder, Kelly, and thanks to all of our FOL family, writers and readers alike, for being here. Looking forward to continuing on together into the new year.
