So, not to be a total drag or anything, but lately life for me has been a little.. shall I say, mundane? And to be honest, I’m getting sick of doing the same ol’ routine every damn day. I mean, I know there are some things that I just can’t stop doing, like going to class or taking a shower, but I have found a way to spice things up a little bit. I was inspired by blogger, Alex, from milkthepigeon.com, to change things up a little. To find the excitement that I once felt for life, all over again. How am I going to do that, you ask? Well, curious reader, I am going to challenge myself this year. Every month, I am going to learn or experience something new and exciting and delve into every aspect of it. Then, when the month is over, I will start on something new.
Here is a list of things that I have come up with so far:
#1: Take one picture every day for a year. (This is one challenge I have already begun.)
#2: Read at least one book every month for the rest of the year.
*My first book, for February is a little something called Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café by Fannie Flagg.
#3: Drink at least 3 glasses of water a day. I know the rule is 8, but I’m starting off small. I used to be able to drink bottles and bottles of the stuff, and would like to get back into that again.
#4: Write one (or more) blogs, a week. (Here’s my first one! This is SO exciting!)
#5: Pay a compliment to at least one person a day.
#6: Twice a week, do something active to get my heart rate up. (That could be running, dancing, etc…)
#7: When a negative comment comes to mind, yell (in my head), “Noooo!” and rework it into a positive comment.
(ex: “Oh my gosh, I am SO fa… Nooo!! My curves help me feel more beautiful than the woman I already am!”
Well, there you have it. I’ll be adding more, of course, as I keep getting new ideas, but for now, these will do just fine.
