My Goals For the Year

The other day I Tweeted about posting your goals somewhere so others could see them and make you accountable or help you stay on track. So, I decided to post my goals for the year right here for all of you to see. Help me stay focused and keep me mindful of what I tell you that you can do. So, here we go:

  1. Lose 95lbs.

  2. Write a book about my life and how you can inspire 1 million people

  3. Create a photography podcast

  4. Buy $500 dollars in stock (I know that is small, but I have never bought stock before)

  5. Create a family photo day for Mother's Day or Father's day

  6. Move my family to Pasadena, Californian (I was born in Pasadena, I still love it)

  7. Earn $100,000 in income from work and photography

  8. Buy new camera - D3 or D3x or even just the D700

  9. Inspire 1 million people to help improve their lives someway

  10. Go back to New York with my family and let my son skate his tail off

  11. Shoot the cover for Dime Magazine

So there you have it, my goals for 2009. You know you have some goals that you want to achieve, get started and post it somewhere.

How important are images?

Last night, as I was going through all of my images in my Aperture library, I realized just how important images are in my life. I found a photo of my son and daughter from 2003. As I looked at the photos, I remembered that time in their young lives and the time it was in my life.

The photos brought me joy and sadness. The joy was seeing their small little faces and remembering how they were always by my side. The sadness was I can never relive that moment. I can never see them at that age again. I am crying as I write this because of the joy of seeing them grow and mature, but also because they are growing and maturing.:)

The photo is what brought all of these emotions out of me. A simple photo that was taken with a 2mp digital camera that was given to me by their Aunt Gail. That camera captured these precious moments that I can only relive when I see those pictures.

How important are your images? Let me know....

Family Photo Day...

I want to thank you for the opportunity that you gave me to photograph you and your family. For over the last two years, I have thought about how I could impact someone's life through photography during the Christmas Season. Over that time, I failed to put my best foot forward by not doing what was in my heart. I allowed excuse after excuse to stop me from making a difference. This year was different.

On December 12th, while driving around town running errands, I asked myself why do I procrastinate when it comes to doing what I know is in my heart? Yet, I still did not put anything into action. It wasn't until that evening when I ran into one of the staff writers for Mas Magazine who encouraged me to do what was in my heart. I knew then I was going to do something bigger than me. Before you know it, Mas Magazine is running a story about the Free Family 8x10 Photo. I also sent out email blasts, handed out flyers with my children to all my friends and posted events on My friend Karla Leal from Telemundo did a story the night before on the six o’clock news. I started receiving phone calls and the excitement began to grow.

In my mind, I knew if only one family showed up, the event was a success. This event was put together in a week. We had a total of 21 families take advantage of this offer.

I am truly grateful for each and every one of you. I pray that each of you live your dreams and never let anyone or anything stop you from your goals. Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season. May God bless you all!!

Sincerely yours,
Michael Lopez

I also received much help from Gina Lopez, Kobe Lopez, Keli Lopez, Diane Lopez, Melisa Sloan, Monte Wilson, Karla Leal, Teresa Adamo, Mary Lou Rebledo, and all my internet friends who passed the email along. I could not have done all this without them. Thanks.

Barack Obama...

I do not know your political view. I know mine and want to share it with you. America deserves better. We all deserve better. This country can be great again and we can do it as a team, as America. So whoever you vote for make sure that they want the same America that you want.

I often used to ask myself what my purpose in life was about. I would wonder why I was placed here on earth. What was my purpose for living. Sometimes I would even ponder thinking about me not being here on earth.

I know my purpose now. So thoughts of not being here on earth can be shot down and I can continue focusing on my purpose. My purpose is to Inspire, to Love, to be Compassionate, and to be a Light among the darkness.

I do not know who this is for, but, someone needs to know that God has made them special and that they were created for a reason. If you would just slow down and listen , He will tell you what your purpose is.
