I have loved doing morning pages. I’ve been doing them faithfully first thing in the morning every day as soon as I wake up. I don’t write anything particularly insightful but I do release my cares and frustrations onto the page. So my morning pages are hearing a lot about the job/s that I hope that I’m going to get chosen for over the next few weeks, my plans for my move home over the next few months and things like that. Nothing creative at all. Another big thing which does seem to work is I write all my intentions for the day. Whatever I write down usually happens! I’ll keep this going for the period for the Artist’s Way but what will be really interesting is if I keep this going after that. 5 months ago

So the exercise goal for this month started well but fizzled but one new thing that is going really well that I am doing every day is morning pages. So yay! 5 months ago
The one I’m going to try for June and that I know will be a major challenge is exercising every day for 30 days. This might mean going to the gym (just across the road now so no excuse and yet..) or it might mean going for a walk. I would LOVE to be able to do this so I’m going to really give this a go! 6 months ago
I did this! It was very similar to the goal that I have here on 43T and I enjoyed it a lot. It made me grateful not only for the wonderful moments and experiences that would happen each day but also for the things that I often take for granted (like being warm, having a regular income etc). 6 months ago
I’ve been doing this for 5 days so far and I’m enjoying it. It’s not the first time I’ve done it but I wanted to do it again right now because I’ve read a lot about the benefits of being grateful, and I’m keen to experience them. I guess I need to keep a gratitude journal for more than 30 days! 7 months ago

I was inspired to ‘try something new for 30 days’ by this TED talk.
“The next 30 days are going to pass whether you like it or not, so why not think about something you have always wanted to try and give it a shot for the next 30 days?”—Matt Cutts
I decided to de-activate my facebook account because I think I spend far too much time on there and not enough time doing things that are constructive and productive. I had once done it for a week, but I simply could not go on to do it for any longer after that because I was having major withdrawls (even though that was four years ago) So I’m prepared to take upon this challenge and succeed to the greatest extent.
I have set some goals to start myself with that I think will help me take my mind away from Facebook, focus and succeed:
- Create a new vision board, Write and Revise new speeches for Toastmasters, go to more Salsa events, look and apply for new employment, listen to more TED talks, drink more tea, take up sewing classes, write a list of other new goals for the month, go to the gym 3 to 4 times a week, update my 43Things, do more yoga and meditation. 10 months ago
