In 2018, I made a resolution to watch the sunrise every day... and I did it. 
It started as a thought a few years back but didn't seem like the right time. For one, after living in Utah for a few months, I was struggling to feel like I had a place here that was special to me — I wanted to discover new places. Another reason was I had an hour commute to work at the time and was tired of getting up in a rush — I wanted to build some more purpose and time into my morning. Lastly, I had the goal of going to bed earlier — but honestly, that goal only improved slightly throughout the year.  
Ultimately this project became my year-long journal and the sunrise became a reminder that each day is a new opportunity. Some days you couldn't see the sun, but it always came through eventually. It's a beautiful reminder and one of my favorite projects I've ever completed. 
2018 will always be special to me because of this project.
