Thank You!

This is it! The commitment to myself to write a blog for the full year of 2008 comes to an end. On the first of January I started blogging by saying, “Hello World”. Today 366 days later I am ending this year by being very thankful.

This blog was an absolute amazing tool of self-discovery. As hard as it was at times to write so much in my second language with two fingers that are crocked by now from all the typing I learned a great deal on a daily basis. I learned to trust my inner voice by saying what I have to say no matter what, to trust the universe and to go into the unknown. Very often I had no idea what to blog about in the morning but daily I would either come up with a story that would inspire me to take a certain photograph or shoot an image that would inspire me to write a story about it.

It taught me to value happiness more then accomplishment and that I am able to produce great work on a daily basis. Even though it was one of the hardest things I have ever done I am so happy that I did it. Looking back I don’t remember the nights I stayed up sometimes until 3 o’clock in the morning to finish a post and the hundreds of hours I spent in front of the computer writing and editing images for it.

It was an exciting year with lots of small and big adventures. Children were born, friends died, lots of pictures were taken, another music video shot. Trips to Las Vegas, San Francisco and Maine made. But the best part is that I can say that 99.99% of the year I only did what I wanted to do. I stopped listening to my mind and started to listen to my heart.

But the main reason why I kept on going was because I knew that somebody was reading what I put so much effort in. I want to thank you my dear blog readers for all your support. Special thanks are going to Marco for being such a good friend, Michael for being my inspiration, Julia for being my fist blog fan, Zenshredding for his many inspiring comments, Ming, Nathalie, Kelvin, Gunar, Ilaria, Lucy, Guy, Elli, Nina, Masha, Brisha, Mary, Maria, Treacle, Alex, Petrina, Ali, Lynda, Peter, Stardust, Jacqueline, Zoe, Ezparz and everybody else who left a comment or was reading the posts. I could not have done it without you guys.

 

Thank you!

 

I wanted to post an image of me blowing a kiss to all of you for your help and support but after many attempts to get the perfect shot I gave up on doing so. Then I remembered that I shot images of Miranda Kerr blowing a kiss towards the camera earlier in the year that I had posted on the blog yet.

To all of you a Happy New Year! May all your wishes and dreams come true, all the best for 2009!
