Monthly Wrap-Up

These pictures have nothing to do with the post, I just felt like sharing!

SO, it’s the end of the month… How are my hopes for the new year going? Let’s see…

1. Writing: my goal was to write every weekday workday (as in, monday-friday, skipping holidays and weekends) ; I did so through the first week and into the second, but then… nope. Unless you count long emails to people. Which I don’t. So. Yeah. BUT, I am going to try again for February – I hope to write a little every day on a novel I’ve got in my head, and take inspiration from Alice Bradley – just write every day, don’t over-think, don’t go back, don’t edit. Just get it out of my head and onto paper (or, well, my computer). Because the over-thinking is what’s killing me, the not wanting to write until I have every single plot detail worked out. Which, I’m never going to. So. Just write. That’s my motto for February.

2. Running: the goal was twice a week. I made it twice a month. Largely due to weather, sickness, etc etc. But also largely due to my lack of commitment. I don’t foresee any big changes in the coming month, but plan to revisit this come spring.

3. Reading: I wanted to record all the books I’ve read. Check! More on this soon…

4. Crafting: I want to make at least one thing every month. I just squeaked by with this one, it isn’t much of a craft, but at least it’s something: a rattle for Meeka. Will share more soon…

5. Appreciating: While there have been plenty of frustrated and annoyed moments, there have also been plenty of sitting back and smiling ones, as well. At least once a day, usually more. Dancing “the noodle” with my husband. Rubbing noses with my daughter. Stopping to let the dog sniff a signpost while I enjoy the fresh air. Yes, indeed. Check!

    Ok so…maybe we need to be each other’s sponsor? I’ll help hold you accountable to running, and you do the same for me with writing? I have so many ideas/plans in my head as well but I never get to the work of just putting them down in text! HELP!
