Because I'm a quitter

Here's a picture of my fridge.

Why am I showing you this? Well besides my pussycat card and my amazing bird magnet, this is the photo I took on the 8th day of my attempt at taking a photo every day for a year. I should have started on January 1st but you see I'm a quitter.

I have a habit of starting projects and not finishing them. I'm going to crochet a blanket! I'm going to write a book! I'm going to improve my French! I'm going to do all the things! I start something with good intentions and then I realize this is harder than I thought it would be or I get distracted by another idea for a project that sounds better than what I'm working on. It's a bad habit that I'm trying to break. 

It's great that I want to do all of these things but it doesn't really count if you don't follow through.

I'm tired of not finishing things so I'm taking baby steps. I shall no longer be a quitter. I've wanted to do a 365 project for a while. I meant to start one on January 1st but must have gotten distracted by something shiny. This time I have to do it. I'm declaring this on my blog so you can chastise me if I abandon the project.

So for one year I will be taking at least one photo a day and posting it on my instagram. So far I'm on day 8 and I'm finding that some days I don't know what to take a photo of and so you get a photo of my fridge. The weekends are much easier because I'm out and about and have more interesting things to photograph than my desk or my floor.

You can look me up on instagram under ginntastic.


  1. I can't even do a 30 day photo challenge on instagram without quitting haha I wish you the best of luck... I know you can do it!!!!!! :)
