Empower and Energy, Project 43 and the monthly projects in my Happiness Project … so many projects! In reality, they are all facets of the same project, guiding me to finish or give up old projects and move forward on the ones that are most important to me.
December’s main theme was Health & Self-Care. I spent some time starting to research improving energy and started taking some vitamins. I also started doing my flexibility video a bit more often.
January’s main theme is “Friends/Family & Social Networks”. While last year these were split into two separate months, Friends & Family (jan) and Social Networks (feb), I made enough progress in both to combine them this year. For the most part, I plan to keep up with the organizing I did last year. I’m updating my address book and sending out birthday cards. I also hope to improve my gifting skills; buying gifts is so difficult for me!
In addition, my plans for the month include small items from other month’s topics, such as learning Python, blogging daily, writing reviews on TripAdvisor, redecorating the dining room, organizing my iTunes, creating an emergency preparedness plan, updating our budget, researching energy foods, exercising at least 3x a week, and sorting out my undergarments and socks (I’ve assigned each clothing item a month).
A couple of these small items are the same as last month, but most of the big ones have been crossed off, and I have moved forward on all of them. It really is a great feeling to be able to cross off many items “for good”!
As usual, whatever doesn’t get done gets cycled back into the plan at a later date. I’ve crossed off a number of ongoing projects in the past month, and I look forward to getting more things organized and done as well as progressing in the longer-term projects.
