March – Photo Madness
I took a photo every day in March, but wasn’t as consistent with sharing them as I’d intended. Perhaps an Instagram-specific challenge will come up sometime this year that looks interesting. In the meantime, I’ve included some of my favorites from the month throughout this post. (smile)
I’ll admit I’ve probably rewritten this post half a dozen times specifically because of this challenge. I feel like I’ve been on quite the journey with my photography the last several months, thanks mostly to the class I’m taking. Today, however, is my final class and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve learned a lot but I’m not sad that it’s over. If/when the time comes I think I can write an objective post about the whole experience, perhaps I will. For now all I’ll say was that it’s been interesting – and that March was not the best choice for a photo-a-day challenge. Will definitely need a re-do!
April – Daily pages
For April, my challenge was to write – somewhere – every day. I hit this goal 83% of the time, and the days I missed were mostly travel related. I have to say, this was my favorite challenge to date. I’ve been practicing a daily pages exercise for just over a year now, although I’ve allowed myself to become distracted the last several months. It was really nice to come back to this habit. I have difficulty with meditation – too many thoughts lead to more anxiety than I started with. So I find that writing, just freely putting words down on a page, is my best form of meditation. Some days the blog counted, other days involved short stories or poems, it was just a fun return to writing. I really hope this one holds over for the months to come!
Upcoming: Since I seem determined to only do these updates every other month, I’ll post my challenge for May and tentative plan for June now.
June – Brain training
My poor memory is in desperate need of a workout, so I’ve decided to try one of those brain training apps. Should be interesting at least! (smile)
Question: What’s your preferred form of meditation??
