In keeping with my One Little Word for 2013, Discernment, I have decided to put real effort into my personal development. Effort begins with a plan. Here’s a quick outline of a plan for my own discernment and growth, that just happens to fit in with the weekly theme:
Reading: non-fiction : continue reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen Covey. start The Artist’s Way, by Julia Cameron. Again.
fiction: Could use some recommendations here. I haven’t read fiction in a year. What’s something springish and engaging?
Poetry: read 1 poem per day regarding Spring.
Music: listen to selections on kid’s list.
Art: pastels or watercolors.
Body: Go on a nature walk 3 times this week. Do bunny hop dancing with kids. Practice egg and spoon race with kids.
Spirit: Attend Good Friday and Easter Sunday services. Gratitude journal every night. Morning pages and Bible Study 3 times.
Husband: go on a picnic in the park date.
Kids: take each to the park for some one on one time.
Family: have them over for Easter lunch.
Friends: since I don’t have time to put together a seed exchange party, I am going to send some seeds to 4 friends that I know like gardening.
Nest: (my home, yard, person,car,etc)
15 minutes of Spring Cleaning per day.
Take car to get an estimate of repairs.
Plant the garden.
Decorate for Easter.
Grow: (new skills, acts of kindness, whathaveyou)
Pick an unfamiliar plant to plant.
Start a sourdough starter.
Send a random happy mail to someone.
