How to: 365 Project

[youtube_sc url=”” autoplay=”1″] You see people posting photos daily to their Instagram or Facebook, and you think “she’s right, that is one cute cat but why is she taking a photo of it everyday, is it sick?” No people, it’s just a cute cat that deserves to be recognised for said cuteness every day of the year. This is a form on 365 project, but it seems this girl got quite specific with her theme. I completed 365 project for 2013 successfully (see above), with my theme being 23-years-old and hopefully fun loving and carefree.

Either way, we’re not living in a movie so opportunities may not fall at our feet. Take action and make something of yourself this year with some of these helpful hints… 1. Decide what you want to do for yourself It may be something small, and that’s just fine. Improving your photography skills, being kind to people, changing the way you eat. Or it may be something gigantic. Changing the way you perceive the world, starting a new career, transforming your body into Heidi Klum’s. Whatever it is, it has to be something you want to do. Don’t jump on the bandwagon to healthy eating if your bestie is doing it, do it because YOU…

Don’t Forget: Mother’s Day

It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday, don’t forget.
