Day 32: Daily Do
Thank goodness for structure and accountability. I’m tired and content today, and would rather zone out and watch my dad make midday pancakes than write a post.
But, them’s the breaks. This blog is a daily commitment through December 31, 2013. It’s an exercise in following through, managing time and writing when I would rather sleep/eat/read/sleep/dance/organize the sock drawer.
One of the many nice things about a daily resolution is that the resolver gets to experience a daily sense of accomplishment (even when the product isn’t perfect).
Instead of making a giant yearly list, maybe this year we should all resolve to do something daily. Once a day, we can say hi to a stranger, say “yes” instead of “no,” read a chapter, run a mile, eat something green, put down the phone, write a blog, make a mess, make the bed, call mom, send a note, recycle something, create something, be really quiet, yell really loudly, light a candle, thank a friend, sit still, dance around, smile big, giggle and snort, breathe, pet a dog, feed a fish, help a kid, encourage a parent and/or look at the sky.
What can/will you commit to doing every day?

I commit to … doing something good for me everyday. Taking care of ourselves is something that too often gets pushed aside. (okay … and write!)
Have a great 2013!
Agreed! Happy New Year to you!
I like the way you are looking at accomplishing things. What a commitment to do posts every day for such a long time. I want to make sure I eat more healthier, so at least one healthy meal a day for me! Have a Happy New Year!
Ooh, I love that. Have a lovely New Year!
Impressive to write a blog post everyday. Sometimes, I find that I let my blog lure me away from my fiction writing. Here’s my Writing Resolution blog hop
Oh yes, the blog can be both an exercise and a distraction. Somehow, it still feels productive (kind of like actual exercise). Thank you for stopping by!
Every day??? Well, beyond brushing my teeth… Recently, I’ve been trying an impromptu rearrangement of my verbal stories. (You know the ones, where you lapse into a script about some experience, and hope your listener sticks with you until your punchline.) Wishing us all a fresh perspective and delivery in 2013. You, Ashleigh, will be doing seven times the work I will with my resolve to post 52 Ways to Stop Pedophiles on http://vagilantes.com/.
52 Ways to Stop Pedophiles is a great and ambitious endeavor! Good luck and thank you for stopping by 402.
