Hi all! Although I have a handy-dandy section that tells you who I am, I think it’s a great idea to just write a post all about me. 🙂
My name is Monica Day. No, I’m not the news anchor or beauty pageant contestant. I am a photographer, artist, baker, writer, wife, daughter, and sister. I’m sure I’m a lot more things as well but that’ll do for now. I’m from the south but have lived all over the country. I’ve never lived abroad though unless you consider Puerto Rico abroad. Oh, I live in San Juan, Puerto Rico but don’t speak very much Spanish. I’m trying to learn though. It’s just so easy not to when everyone speaks English as well. I’m also on a journey of wellness, weight loss, and accountability. I love to teach about the things I know and love, love, love to share.
I started this blog a couple of months ago (August 2014) to mainly keep myself accountable for my weight loss efforts. I quickly realized that I had more to share. I then decided that I’d like to cover my photography, fashion, fitness, and food. Of course, I need all of those to start with the letter “f” so let’s go with “foto”. I actually started this blog with my YouTube videos. Those aren’t all about weight but they were a great place to start with posts. I’ve been wanting to actually commit to blogging for some time now. I’ve started probably 3 or so blogs but never followed through. This time I will. I actually called this blog Monica Does It because I want to actually do it. I want to do EVERYTHING I say I’ll do. I don’t want to be that unaccountable girl anymore. I want to be the woman that everybody can count on.
My blog is for women who are seeking encouragement and motivation. My blog is for anyone that’s looking for answers about photography, fashion, food, and fitness. I want to show these things from my perspective. The perspective of someone who has tried everything only to learn that hard work and persistence really are the secrets to success.
I’ve recently been working on finding my passion for photography again. I am so excited about it. I must say that my recent trip to New York for a photography workshop has helped tremendously. I have a new found passion. I’m also working on my YouTube channel even more. I have a great list of ideas that I cannot wait to implement. I can’t wait to see it grow and become something super fabulous.
The one message I absolutely want people to take from this blog is that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. I’ve lived in a place where dreams were just that. Dreams. I want my dreams to be reality and have figured out that all it takes is a little commitment. The faith of a mustard seed has moved mountains in my life.
