At the beginning of the year, I chose BALANCE as my One Word. My goals for the year included finding a balance in my life…and in my reading.
Trying to cut down (just a bit) on requesting review books:
I received SEVEN review books in January, but only THREE in February. None in March so far.
As for purchases:
SEVEN in January
SIX in February
THREE (so far) in March
Okay, not stellar, but here’s another fact: I am participating in the Reading the Books You Buy Challenge, and so far, I have read and reviewed NINETEEN books (Purchased between June 2015 and Present). Not bad, right?
Now, here’s the tough part. What about the rest of my life? Walking, leaving the house, socializing…
Well, let’s put it this way. When I shop, I park a long way from the stores and walk that distance, and then walk all around the shops. LOL
I do get out of the house more, mostly alone, to have lunch or dinner and read. Usually with a cocktail.
My regular get-togethers with friends and former colleagues are the highlight of my months.
But I also enjoy eating and reading alone in a restaurant. I read…and people watch. Old habits die hard (former social worker!).
Progress, not perfection.
I have my annual physical today, and I know that she is going to scold me for something or other. Usually it’s that I don’t get enough exercise. Duh.
But so far, nothing too horrible has come of these events…so let’s see what happens today.
How are you doing on your One Word…if you have chosen one?
