Breezy Proof: June 1, 2016

Hey there, ROWers and others!

It’s a new month, which means that I have a new set of goals. I’ve also got a new perspective, courtesy of a particularly intense migraine. My goals will be simplified for June (well, simplified for my wide-angle norm, anyway, which would likely still drive more linear types mad.)

I’m adapting my updating process. Rather than including all goals each session, I’m posting only those with which I’ve interacted in some way. That leaves space to chat with you, share things I’ve learned, challenges the days have brought, or whatever.

It also gives me a more streamlined overview of where my energy, time, and focus, so that some things don’t end up ignored week after week, which was happening more than I like with my former system.

I‘ll post a link to this original goals list in every update, for those who want to keep tabs.

It’s a breath of fresh air, and just thinking about doing my updates feels lighter and breezier.

How about you?

Does June have you thinking of fresh starts?

Are you breezy?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

  1. If I had to describe June in one word, it would be energizing. There’s something about this month–kicking off summer, listening to thunderstorms roll through, drinking iced tea on the patio, taking long walks in the woods–that just energizes me. I’ve started on a new writing schedule, and it seems like the perfect month to try new things and challenge myself to write more.

    Awesome progress with your goals!

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
