Just in time for Stephanie's birthday, I finished sewing a new dress that I have had planned for her since October. When I participated in the KCWC, I committed to sewing (or preparing fabric or cutting patterns...) for one hour each day for one week. It was marvelous. I watched a few ideas bloom into actual completed projects, and that felt wonderful. Just one hour per day. Surely, I would keep sewing, right? Not so much. It seems I need that committed time, and there are oh-so-many little projects I want to do (not just sewing). One hour per day ad infinitem would be a bit unrealistic for me, but some would only need one hour per week or five minutes per day. I'd like to challenge myself to a different, specific project each month, starting with March. Small ideas:
- a photo per day, with a 30 word or less caption
- daily personal, handwritten journal time
- handwritten letters to friends, at least one each week (or maybe a postcard-length note each day)
The overly ambitious, unrealistic part of me looks at this list and thinks I should just do all four. Surely that would work...no? Hmmm....one more day to ponder, but then I will launch into my challenge on March 1st. Any ideas for a personal challenge of your own?
