A blog I just started reading, called The Nectar Collective, hosts a link-up each Monday called Weekly Wishes. She shares goals, challenges, and wishes for the coming week, and how she did with the previous week’s plans.
I love this idea! I am so bad at following through on longer-term goals. They always sound so good, but I never know where to start… or how to continue after three weeks. So, a week at a time? I might be able to do. And I can start with a fresh list each week, regardless of whether I missed the mark the week before.
Nothing to review from last week this time, so I’ll just jump in here.
1. Clean up the apartment. I am a collector of things. I pile. And I save. I already started looking through my clothes for things I don’t wear any more. I’d like to clean up my living room. And I have big plans to clear out my bathroom shelves for no longer loved toiletries, lotions, and makeups. And we probably shouldn’t discuss my pantry. I went through one shelf last week (of at least six), and almost filled an entire trash bag.
Can I stop at just that one? Ok, ok, I’ll continue. Even though that one very well might take every day.
2. Get ready to take a blog e-course. I want to do a little more thought to where I’d like to take this blog before I jump into a (small) redesign. It was making my head swim last week, but obviously it’s not affecting much for me, so I decided to calm down. If I think I’d rather it look and operate a little differently, I’m going to go for it.
3. Take time to read. I love unwinding in front of the TV, and I don’t plan to stop. But I also started reading The War of Art, and it seems incredible so far. I want to make a better effort to give myself time for a few pages each day.
4. And finally, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I want to sleep! This is always on my list of things to do. But I almost never get there. I miss eight hours. So I need to try once more.
(And how about these capital letters?! I don’t know if they will last. But at least they’re here today.)
