Project Be has evolved.
And I couldn’t be happier.
We call it the “say cheeeeeeeeese” face. But I digress….
As it turns out, doing one thing at a time just doesn’t work for me. I’ve learned that I need to let myself bounce back and forth from one thing to another and be happy with it. The trick is not to be bouncing too many things at once. 🙂 I think I’ve found a good balance.
Out of the 21 subjects I laid out back in 2010, I have made progress in 13 of them. I really feel like I’ve learned so much and changed myself in the process. I’ve made permanent changes, big and small decisions, and I have a clearer picture of who I am and where I’m going. I definitely don’t have it all figured out, and I know I’ll always be going down that road, but I feel a lot more sure footed at this point.
This is my six month check in. Here is what I’ve accomplished!
Yoga. – I practice once a week (if babysitting allows for it) in class and whenever I can at home.
The Vegan Diet – explored in detail for several months and am eating vegan more often.
A self makeover – in progress.
Gardening – in progress, will write about it soon!
Composting – also in progress!
Being a better teacher to my children – a daily challenge to myself, especially with homeschooling, no beginning or end.
Living greener – making progress every month, currently reducing plastic and paper products and purging excess “stuff” in our house
Upcycling – coming later when I have a chance to get more crafty…
Adobe Photoshop – took a one day class and also working through online courses, just need more practice time.
Photography – I feel like this is a constant focus as I look through my lens at the world, learning more every day.
Eating “package food” free: planning a household ban on packaged food in the coming months to get us out of our food rut!
Homeopathy – lots of reading and research, and I am just plain confused. Leaving this up to the professionals.
Running – this one got nixed pretty quickly. According to my doctor, I’m not cleared for that type of exercise. Maybe in 2012?
Creativity with the kids – duh! classroom!
And the rest below….. haven’t gone there yet, but I feel them coming. 🙂 I do still have six months to go!
Philanthropy. Spirituality. Frugality. Poetry. Writing. Sewing. Graphic Design
