FOLK Magazine’s blog has a new concept that I rather like!
Each week, you can do a journal entry on your own blog, then link it up to FOLK. So here’s mine for:
Week 1: Reflect on lessons learned in 2012
2012 was my 50th year and I have to honestly say, while it wasn’t easy, it was one of the best years of my life. I’ve had new opportunities that are helping me reach some goals, as well has having been fortunate enough to enjoy 2 southern trips! Wow!!
Blogging has taken such a hold onto my heart in such a profound way. I eat, sleep and drink this habit! If my house were on fire, I’d grab my son, cat, computer, and camera. Ok, and iPhone…
So what did I actually learn?
Well… I learned when you dip into something deep, you don’t allow a whole lot of time for other things in life. And that’s sorda what happened with me. I didn’t bother with a whole lot of planning or scheduling so I just rolled with the punches and ended up spending a little too much time online.
I kinda forgot to cook a few (alot of) home cooked meals, didn’t exercise like I should have, didn’t bother to grow any new friendships, nor spend as much time with my family or son just kickin’ around as I should have.
Blogwise? I need to get serious about my poor ebook still waiting for me.
What will I do about it?
“make more dates with family and friends!”
Cook! Go over Pinterest with my son and together, choose some meals that appeal to him so he’ll be encouraged to help with the shopping and cooking. I’ve wanted to do this FOREVER. Now’s the time.
More son time. After school is my time with my son, period! No more sneaking online when I shouldn’t when he’s around.
Time for friends and family. I need to schedule in some dates with my family and friends. I really need to do this!
Walk daily. Anyone can walk. I’ve run out of excuses. And I’ve actually started. I already feel stronger and lighter on my feet. Love that!
Make an effort to open that ebook daily until it’s done! Yikes… but even if I give it 10 minutes a day, I can do that, right? Gulp…
Remember my New Year’s mantra DO? Ok! I’m gonna DO it!
Dear FOLK… what have you gotten me into now?!
