Making a list for September

Making plans for September.  What new things to I want to participate in?  Want to be careful to not over commit.  I seem to want to try everything.  But that will mean I will not succeed at any thing and will end up feeling bad about myself.  Not a good place to put myself in.

1.  I of course will continue to participate in the activities of the Glitterhood.  The Book of  Days and the Book of Mirrors.  We are only in our 9th week of our 18 week program.

2.  I will continue with my blog.  I have enjoyed the experience of writing my blog and posting my art and photos.  So will continue this.

3.  I am starting a plan to have a me date one day a month.  To go somewhere, anywhere, even if I have to go alone.  This is something I read about with one of blog along friends.  I just am having trouble finding it so I can give credit to her blog.  (If you are her or know who she is, please let me know.)  To get out, take photos and see something.  I realized yesterday that I was feeling sorry for myself for never going anywhere.  So…No feeling sorry for myself allowed!  Go see and do!  I told my daughter about this.  Told her I wanted to go downtown Sacrament for a day trip this month and she wants to go too.  Company is not necessary, but always welcome.  So we are going on the Friday the 13th!!

4.  I am going to be practicing drawing faces.  So I decided to join the 29 Faces in 30 Days group.  Raine Phoenix and Sweatred Clover are also participating in.  Are you doing this?  Would love to know!  🙂

5.  I am probably going to join the Right Brain Planner that Cynthia Lee shared on her blog post

Hope I did that right.  hehehe

6.  To make some new journal to work in as two of mine are complete.  Will share this with you in a future blog.

    Good luck with all your plans, Shirley. I’m doing the year long Soul Food course on Community Thrive (ning). It doesn’t begin until December so the BOD will be concluded by then. I don’t like to over-commit either or I end up dropping out of things.

    Hi Shirley, I agree wholeheartedly with not over commiting (which I do a lot!) – the one word for this year for me was ‘enough’. (g) I posted a piece of shabby chic artwork with a quote you might like to see – it’s dedicated to all those feisty women out there (and you are one of them!) http://vivavoc3.blogspot.ca/2013/08/she-was-told-that-at-her-age-she.html
    hope it brings a smile to your face1 Blessings!

    I would love to see your right brain planner! That looks REALLY interesting to me! I wonder if she made all the pages, or buy them? Do you know? I want to work on having a me date too! I love that idea, and it really is nice to have special day like that!

    I’m really terrible for trying to do EVERYTHING all at once…especially because me and plans never seem to mesh… I have great intentions that never seem to materialize. I’m going to try to be like you and not over-commit….we’ll see how it goes.

    I like the list on your post too! It’s a great way to remind yourself of the plans and goals! I may have to swipe your idea! 🙂
