Earlier in the year, I chose my WORD: BALANCE.
How am I doing so far? Well, I get up every day and go through my routines. Nothing much has changed there, but I do try to get out and about more often.
Staying holed up inside was one of the ANTI-BALANCE things I did…
Reading and blogging are my two favorite things, but I can do them elsewhere…right? The other day I took my book to The Elephant Bar, where I had lunch and continued reading A Man Called Ove. Okay, maybe I should have made more of an effort to socialize. But that will come.
I am trying to pick a more eclectic group of books this year, and I am steadily working on my Reading the Books I Buy Challenge.
So far I have read and reviewed NINE books from those stacks. Last year, I definitely didn’t do that well in the first month. I don’t have those numbers at my fingertips, but judging from how many 2014 and 2015 unread books I had, I can safely say…NO.
Does this mean I am achieving some kind of balance? Maybe not, but it’s all about PROGRESS RATHER THAN PERFECTION.
I need to start walking more…and socializing more, and I don’t mean online, although that is my favorite kind. I am an introvert, although I have my social moments.
Do you ever take those silly FB tests? Here’s mine today, and it doesn’t prove anything at all…but I like the sound of it…LOL
Could I really be more well-balanced than I thought? LOL
Despite the so-called “evidence” above, I know that I have a way to go in this journey. Have you chosen a word? What does your progress look like?
