Don't get me wrong, I love blogging. I always think up good things to blog about in my head when I'm out and about I just never seem to get to the doing part! I have realised that this is me, I always love the thought of doing things; blogging, crafting, designing, travelling, you get the idea. But the actual DOING part is the part that is hardest for me to start.
This is reflected in our house. We moved in 8 months ago and I still haven't unpacked everything, hung pictures and sorted general places for 'stuff'. We're not really any messier than the average household but we do have a lot of STUFF. It is reflected in the projects I take on; I finished a pair of pj's for a friend's son the other day and when I started then I purposely made them bigger so they would last him longer. When I delivered, they fit him perfectly (thank goodness he has a younger brother!) I also used to be a very active person and during my second pregnancy, which wasn't the easiest of times, I really stopped doing the active thing so much.
So I am making a resolution to change. A bit late to call it a New Year's resolution but what the hey. Not that I am particularly political (read not at all) but it's like Obama says,
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." - Speech following Super Tuesday results, Feb 5, 2008.
I have already started becoming more active which is so great and you forget how much of a difference it makes to your everyday energy levels. I am ordering the projects that were never completed and will hit them one by one (thus the pj's are done!). Basically, I want to live more, create more, travel more and just experience as much as I possibly can. Perhaps I won't blog every day or even every week but every month is the minimum challenge. Pfft and pshaw! How easy! I hear you say, well, with a wandering mind like mine it is challenge enough! Besides I have to fit in all that other creating, travelling, unpacking, improving fitness and living crap too ya know!
