I just signed up for the 4th annual blogging festival called Blogtoberfest, hosted by Kat at  I Saw You Dancing.  A month of blogging every day –  you may wonder – what are you thinking?  Well, I was thinking.  I have been reading and reading blogs, partially because of an online class I’m taking with Kelly Rae Roberts called Flying Lessons.  In a short two weeks, I have seen women really blossom!  After seeing a commitment on a blog by Australian Janine Whitling, I decided I can do it!

At first, I thought – ” no – you can’t post every day”.  I realized I don’t have to write a dissertation every day.  I want to use this to record my month of paying attention to what is around me.  I plan on keeping a notebook with me at all times to record things I see, hear and read.  If nothing else – I can always just post a favorite quote.

To get ready for this, I spent this rainy day in Georgia cleaning up.  I even laid out the clothes I will wear to work tomorrow – something I rarely do!  So, this month is going to be getting new habits, like pre-planning, paying attention, and being good to ME!  I plan on exercising regularly, taking my lunch to work, taking care of those things so I can open my mind and heart up to anything that comes.

Come on this journey with me.  I will start with my “October To-Do” list – which includes art projects and personal plans i.e. budgeting, getting a new car, getting beyond my antique flip phone!  I will write about books I’ve read, starting with The Creative Habit, Learn It and Use It For Life  by Twyla Tharp.

I’m not going to beat myself up if I miss a day, but I’m going to make an honest effort!  I need to get those pesky ideas out of my head  – begin acting on those ideas that pop in and out!  I know there are a few that are going to STICK!

If nothing else – I’ll post pictures of Ziggy and his escapades, like trying to read my books!  more on that later.
