Each month I attempt a different resolution,
in the hopes that the resolutions will last longer than a month.
See past resolutions here.
For September, my resolution was to read every day. .
Notes: I promised I would read some of a book every day. And not just mags, either! In total, I read 23 books (and my usual magazines too). I admit, some of the books were style or beauty books, and I could read a couple of those in a day. To help, I kept a book or two on hand, and used my time wisely.
Would I do this again? Sure, but I felt like I was back in college, and trying to cram in reading. I really put pressure on myself to read a lot. Therefore, I also found that my blog posts suffered a bit, since I used most of my spare time reading books and responding to blog comments.
For October, I am stepping out of my comfort zone and saying YES to every opportunity. I tend to be quite a wallflower (unless a microphone is involved), and will just do a little laugh and whisper "no" to many things in life. It's my Birthday month, and it's about dang time I started doing living it up.
I'm leaving this up to fate, and letting things happen organically, instead of planning a list of things to do.
AND since it's my birthday month (& I got away so easy last month) I'm doing a bonus resolution: accept compliments. I'm horrible at this, are you? I always think the compliment is an ulterior motive for something else. Or sometimes I just don't believe them. But this month, that's all changing!
Let's see where life takes me this month...
