Over the weekend, it occurred to me that I could use some random inspiration to try to motivate myself to get some things done. Mostly, I’m busy, but I still want to be healthy, keep up with certain activities, or maybe try something new. But it’s easy to come home, bemoan the hard and/or long day at work, and not do anything that doesn’t absolutely *have* to be done. So I decided to take on a 30-day challenge of some kind. I haven’t decided yet what it’s going to be but I got a lot of ideas from this post. I was thinking of taking on something related to things that tend to fall by the wayside when school starts–cleaning, reading, exercise. Exercise is out for right now, as I’m in a boot again for another couple of days. And cleaning, bleh. But reading or some other intellectual activity seems manageable. I tend to watch tv or surf the Internet. I’d also potentially like to acquire or reacquire a new skill–musical instrument or sewing, maybe.
In my mind, I envision this challenge enriching my life in some way, perhaps really embedding itself as a lifelong habit. Seems a lot of pressure for picking the right thing, then. Make your suggestions in the comments, and maybe you’ll join me along the way.
