Weekly Wishes No. 6

Monday, November 11, 2013

Last week, my sole goal was to be content with the fact that my best is the best I can give in any situation. And if that is still not enough, well there is nothing I can do about it. Worrying does no good...for anyone. I felt more at peace and put the extra energy I spent worrying into putting the finishing touches on projects and assignments. Working harder gives a sense of accomplishment worrying never can give you. 

My goals for this week: 
1. Blog 7 days this week. Even when Samantha and Emily were contributing to Stamp in my Passport, we never blogged 7 days a week. I was on a writing roll yesterday and I almost have all of this week's posts completed. Isn't it amazing that the more you write, the more ideas that come to you? It's those first few words that will make or break your inspiration and creativity. 

Speaking of creativity...

2. The Creative Initiative. Lena of This Lovely Little Day, myself, and about 5 other bloggers have organized "The Creative Initiative" link-up that went live last week. You can view my first post here. There will be a different prompt each week, and you are encouraged to sketch or create something that goes along with the prompt. If you feel like you are lacking spark, this is the perfect exercise to force you to put pen (or charcoal, paint, etc.) to paper. Also, there are some truly talented ladies participating and their talent inspires me. We would love to have you join us again on Thursday.

3. Go on a 24 hour social media fast. No, you read that correctly. After reading this infographic about how social media affects your brain, I've decided to go at least one day without Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, the whole shabang. After the one day fast, my goal is to designate a brief time in the morning and at night to check it. It has gotten to the point where I can't go to sleep until  I have caught up on Instagram and Pinterest, which is a problem.

What are your goals for this week?

24 hours?! You go, girl!! It will be hard but I bet it will be so fulfilling and you'll appreciate the little things so much more. Good luck!

Good luck with your goals this week! I am also blogging every day this week (well, this month) and it's tough! Worth it though, it's been fun to come up with all the different ideas etc.

Also a 24 hour social network fast, I *need* to do this, I have become so addicted! It's a great idea to step away from it and take a break, let us know how you get on.

Wowww!!! 7 days of straight posting? Get it, lady! Also, I don't think I'm strong enough for the social media fast, but I'm behind ya! Great goals and I hope the Creative Initiative is going swimmingly.

A social media fast..now that is something i never thought to do. I'm afraid to even know how much time I spend on social media sites..EEK! I think that's a good plan I should implement for myself and get more productive with my time. Thanks for the idea! Good luck this week with your wishes :)
