My Last Post

I’m wrapping the blog up.

And you know, a part of me feels like I’ve “failed,” since I set out to do something “photoworthy” every day for a year, and quit about 1/3 of the way through. And while I originally thought this challenge would help me get out of the apartment and LIVE (which it did, sometimes), it really helped me better understand happy-moments, and personal growth, and that you need to work on it every day.

You can’t take a photo of an emotion. If I have a horrid day–the “mean reds”–and I function through it (accept the feeling and keep functioning versus drinking as I was making a habit of), that’s huge! It’s also not photoworthy.

So I stopped the daily challenge.

And then I promised a sporadic blog, filled with great activities here and there.

And then I moved to an apartment with no internet–and it’s incredibly perfect.

Being disconnected in my evenings and weekends is unbelievably GOOD for me. So, I’m giving up any posting on this blog. I appreciate every reader’s support, and tolerance for my quick unedited writing.

Here’s to happiness (and sadness, and the whole spectrum of human emotion); here’s to accepting oneself, striving for betterment (of all things), and to learning. That’s the biggin–I’ve learned so much.

Blog Revamp

So I’ve been thinking that this whole blog-a-day thing really sucks when I don’t have money to do anything real cool, quite often (as I originally planned). HELLO student loan payments. It makes me feel really guilty when I come home from work, and all I want to do is read, or do something I’ve already done this year (and would no longer be a “good” post)–no bueno. So, I’m switching things up. I’m still going to post “photoworthy” stuff, but it’s not going to be quite so regular (but hopefully it will be more “legit”). I’ll share happy-making Minnesota activities, but the 365 slices of bliss part is being dropped. I mean, let’s be honest…not every day can be “blissful” in an internet photo-posting sense.

Ok?

Cool. Whew–I’m glad we did this.

 

 

I Need Your Help

I Need Your Help

January 1, 2014, will mark the beginning of a difficult journey. Now, it’s sad to say it will be difficult, because this journey is to complete an exciting activity every day for a year. (And really, should that be so hard?)

I need your help. 365 days is a long time. Please comment and add an idea of a day/weekend activity, whether it’s extreme (base jumping), or a weekday fun event (massage). Maybe its a sight seeing landmark or maybe it’s an activity like hula-hooping. List em all!
