Every week when I make my schedule, I always try to work in time to write. And even when it makes it onto the calendar, it is one of the first things that I am willing to move around. Which usually means I don't end up doing it.
Do I need to write to successfully do my job and get through life? No. But writing gives me life, it energizes me, it helps me process information, and it allows me to become more self aware. I think these are pretty important things. So in April, one of the main things I want to do is write more. Maybe I won't be writing publishable things, but I want to dedicate time each week to sit down and write.
I have also really enjoyed playing my ukulele. I'm still pretty bad, but that's what practice is for, right? Playing the ukulele gives me a chance to sing, and puts creating music back in my life.
As I was reflecting on these things, I realized I just miss time to create. So with that in mind, I set 3 Goals for April to help me create:
- Play the ukulele three times a week for a half an hour.
- Sit down two times a week for at least an hour and write.
- Create something beautiful once a week. An image for this blog. A song. A craft for my wall. A card for a friend. A friendship bracelet. Just something.
Here's to investing in myself, my spiritual gifts, and hobbies that give me life.
