Beautiful handmade carpet bought from Northern Cyprus. The pattern is based on an Azerbaijani design.
Doing this slightly modified, rather than 6 words, I'm writing down an emotion, major event, what I did well, poorly and what I'll do tomorrow. So that's kind of 6 things and more useful.
August 1, 2016 - January 21, 2017
3 and a bit months in - going strong!
02.06. English exam, Hamilton, K, bed, relaxing
08.05: studies, morning w/K., living room, US history.
Looks like, I need to restart this again.
I stopped short. Why? Well, a few months ago, when I took a hiatus from Day Zero, it was largely because I realised there is no point in goals if they are making you more unhappy by looking at all the ones unfinished, than happy and motivated for the future. My life was just in that sort of place where you can't see the future where all of these things happen.
Keeping a journal is one of the easier things to do, and that's why I was doing it. But it had its own drawbacks. I am a writer, and so the journal of six words was not doing anything for me - I already wrote about my day when I wanted to, what I was thinking, and anyway, mostly wrote something almost every single day. Six words is not even quite long enough for you to make poetic allusions to what you did or felt that day (as I discovered). It was a good thing to try to do. But once I started forgetting, it wasn't something worth stressing over.
Didn't quite keep it up...
Started 02/10/2015 - End date of goal 02/04/16
This is making 6 months feel like a very long time - I think this is a good thing, but strikes fear in the heart for some of the goals I've set myself over much longer periods of time...
End date: 3/09/2015
01/01/2015 .... one down only 365 to go
12/24/14 - Skipped two weeks, Havanese Christmas Eve!
I have actually kept this up for 7 months. Given this year was the year of "Reflect" it seems fitting. I will continue until Dec 31. yay!
