30 Day Commitment

Considering that it's been a year and a half since my last post, I can pretty well guess that I don't have any followers anymore. Well, that's just fine and dandy. This is just for my benefit anyway. But anyone's welcome to tag along for the ride.

I was listening to a TED talk a while back about a 30-day commitment: a commitment to do one thing every day for 30 days that will make you feel good. The author did simple things--taking one photo each day, for instance--and harder things--cutting out processed sugar, for instance. I thought it sounded like a great idea, so I thought I'd give it a try. (With something simple, anyway ... I'm not up for anything that requires work. I'm too lazy for that.)

So here's my simple plan. Write a one-sentence blog post each day for thirty days. Since December has 31 days, this first day of the month doesn't count. (If you haven't noticed, it's more than one sentence.) My guess is that I'll probably skip a day or two here and there, and maybe I'll lose steam a week into it. That's fine too.

While I'm making a pretty-sure-I-can-do-it commitment to doing this for 30 days, I made an absolutely-sure-100%-certain commitment a while back that I'll spend more time enjoying life and less time beating myself up for failing with stuff that doesn't mean much to me. So if this one-sentence blog thing doesn't work, then so be it.

Life's too short for spending time doing things that don't lead to happiness.

Let's see if I remember to post tomorrow. I'm a bit out of practice. Ha.


  1. I'm still following, and I think it's a great idea! Go for it!!

    P.S. Do you remember which TED talk it was? Sounds interesting.

  2. Sorry, Hannah, I looked for the TED talk and couldn't find it. If I stumble across it, I'll let you know.

  3. Glad to see you are writing again!
