It is hard to believe but the first half of the year is over. Did you realize that already? For my 12 habits a year project it means a lot. It means I am half through!? Of course not all of them will stay forever with me, or some are already faded away, but I am totally fine with that. As long as most important of them stay.
Meanwhile I’ve learn a bit more about myself and I am so glad I dared to try and start this venture 🙂
That is my list of habits so far:
January. Being grateful every day. Overfullfilled and I am trying to keep it.
February. Daily yoga. Partly failed due to sickness, but I still coninue it from time to time.
March. Speaking german on a daily basis. It did work for about a month, but I cannot call it a habit 😀
April. Practicing cello. It worked out quite well, though this is not working for me on a daily basis (well, mostly it doesn’t work for my neighbors ;))
May. Daily italian. Yepp, I am learning italian! So much fun! And good progress on both the language and the habit
June. First two weeks of June I spent in Portugal, where I was not able to keep up with any habit, but eating tasty food every day 😀 To be 100% fair with myself I cannot name one habit for the whole month, it was a combination. And the reason for that is that I simply did not name a habit in advance, just to let myself do whatever comes to my mind. What I did a lot this month were sketches, that actually grew into some kind of addiction by now.
What I have learnt:
- “Month” is a human invented convention. Apparently, I am not living by months and I never thought about that before (why not?). I basically do not care what month it is right now, I know it’s summer and it’s hot 🙂 All I need to know. Thats why I was starting my habits earlier than the first of the month and it works for me better than an accurate plan.
- Plans are there to be changed and adapted. I have actually written down planned habits in December, good thing I do not need to follow the plan 🙂 Italian was not on the list, I did not know back then that I will start learning this beautiful language.
- I need my ‘lazy’ days without anything planned. That is the I am most creative 🙂
Lets see what July will bring 🙂
