thoughts on the 365 project

 I've been trying really hard to take pictures every single day. My goal in the beginning was to somehow get a picture of me everyday. A different angle, pose, or even just parts of me (feet, hair, etc). The first 2 months were pretty easy. It was always in the back of my mind to do it and I felt like 
I could really do it this year.
Then, I seemed to get busy and forget or I couldn't think of a picture to take that didn't look like the million I already had taken. Then I simply got bored. I tried to change things up and even add photos that didn't have me directly (or indirectly) in them but somehow captured something from my day. That probably helped this project continue on for some more time, but here I am, mid-March and its already fizzled out.
 So far this year's 365 project has lasted shorter than last. And yes I know I have been incredibly busy and it hasn't been the most important thing on my mind so I've let it slip, but it was a goal I so badly wanted to try and finish. I feel like there are so many goals (especially in blog land) that I start but am never able to completely finish. And I hate seeming like I half ass things.
So I'm not entirely sure where to go from here or what I even want to do from here about this project. Part of me wants to pick it back up and the other part of me feels I've waited too long and should just try again another time. But while I do the pros and cons (which I have to do for every situation....or rock paper scissors) at least I have some cute photos from the beginning of this year, including Chloe growing. 

Has anyone else had this experience with the 365 project? And if so, what was your end approach?

Chloe is so cute! Why don't you try a 30 day- photo a day challenge? It is much easier with a subject everyday to help you! It is so much fun! If you do it every month for a year you will have a 365.
