If you read the title of this post and know what I’m talking about, you are an old friend indeed.
It was my old posts on this topic through which I was searching recently. I could not believe it, but I did that series for two and a half years. My first one was July 2006. That was nearly eight years ago. My oldest son recently turned 16. He was still a baby back then. I did them faithfully every month (except for January 2007 and 2008 when I did New Year’s resolutions), and then I gave up in early 2009.
Not too long ago, I saw, perhaps in a combox, somebody (Jennie C? Sarah R?) reminiscing about this series. For those of you who weren’t with me back then, the concept is very simple. Instead of trying to become a new person overnight, pick one small, simple thing you’d like to work on for just one month. In December 2006, I resolved to sit down for 15 minutes every day and relax. In May 2008, I resolved to pray the rosary daily. My favorite was June 2008 when I resolved to not kill my husband. Six years later, and I’m still keeping that one!
This month, I am going to write almost every day. I may not blog every day, but I will try to write most days. There are a number of non-blogging writing projects I have in mind, and I’d like to see how far I can get on them this summer. I have a growing file of outlines of things I hope to write “one day.” Outlining counts as writing.
Are you game? Have a resolution for the month? Let’s hear it!
