30-Day Projects

Two of my friends have just inspired me to blog again... Thank you Retta & Marilu!

A while ago, I saw this video:
and was inspired to start my own 30-day projects.  But I didn't... procrastination gets the best of me every time.  And then I read Retta's most recent blog post - she was also inspired by this video & has started her 30-day projects, beginning with cleaning and fixing up her yard and house, taking baby steps one day at a time.  So I'm inspired again.

I want these to be fun or experimental little goals.  So that I enjoy doing them and possibly learn something about myself.

For the rest of July, I'm going to draw something every day.  I've always wanted to learn how to draw, I even have a set of drawing pencils and a couple of sketch pads, but I haven't taken the time to do it.  While at the book store yesterday, I looked at the drawing section and found a couple of how-to books that I think I could follow.  On my way home from the gym today, I'm going to stop by the store again and buy one.  Then tonight... my first sketch!

Some other potential 30-day project ideas:  Saying "Hello" or "Good Morning" to everyone whose paths I cross, read at least 1/2 hour, take a picture, write a novel (see the video), meditate, and learn a new word.
