Empower and Energy, Project 44 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.
April’s main theme was Cooking. As I move forward, I consider each month’s theme and determine if there is anything I need to do to update it. For some reason, I haven’t felt much like cooking the past month or so. I’ve been expending my energy elsewhere. Just recently, I’ve started cooking more again, and I’m hoping to make time for cooking more and more, but maybe not until after the summer.
May’s main theme is “Volunteering”. Again, there’s nothing major that I want to accomplish in terms of volunteering this month. I continue to volunteer at the Red Cross and am signed up for a big hands-on training this month. I also continue to volunteer here in Decatur for the Fire and Police CAPS and other things.
My plans for the month include small items from other month’s topics, such as refreshing my capris inventory, blogging daily, cleaning the dining and living rooms, organizing my iTunes, learning how to use my mixer, and exercising at least 3x a week including 1x with weights.
While the list is long, I can see the progress I’ve made over the past year and a half even if it has been slow. I’m more organized, have more time and energy, am cooking more and am happier with my house each and every month.
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.
