In 2018, I made a resolution to watch the sunrise every day... and I did it.
It started as a thought a few years before but didn't seem like the right time. And then, going into 2018, it seemed like the perfect time.
After living in Utah for a few months, I was struggling to feel like I had a place there that was special to me — I wanted to discover new places and find more purpose and intention in my morning routine. I wanted to wake up with the sun.
Additionally, 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 chronicled my travels from Utah to Nashville to Seattle and everywhere in-between as well as the beginning of my MBA program.
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.
You can see the whole day by day here.
