Ever want a re-do? A chance to start over and hopefully make less mistakes than 'last time'. I feel like that constantly, not necessarily regretting what I have done, but wishing I could have done it differently, or thought about it more, or waited a little longer before jumping in. Is that the same as regrets? Not sure.
I have been thinking lots about this blog, the reason why I started it, what I want to put on it, who I want to share it with... that sort of thing. I have decided I really want to keep going BUT I think I need a re-do. Everyone that I have talked to so far have said to plan, and isn't that what everyone says? PLAN your assignments, PLAN your day, PLAN your budget, and on it goes. Well, I've decided to listen!
I have registered for a programme called a Season of Change which describes itself as a "12 week body, self-image and lifestyle transformation event". I'm thinking of it as a re-do. A chance to re-think my lifestyle and the lifestyle I want to foster, encourage and talk about on here. I am going to (try) and document my journey with this programme. Thoughts, experiences and goals as they come up. I am doing it with a good friend of mine and hopefully we can encourage each other to keep going and stay committed!
In this situation I find it helpful to know what your weaknesses are to be able to effectively combat them. My big weakness in this situation is that I am a great starter. While this doesn't sound like a weakness, this is the reason why I have two half degrees under my belt, at least 5 crochet projects STARTED, and a whole lot of 'project' pieces of furniture on my trademe watch list, where they will stay! I am hoping that doing this programme with people will mean that I will start AND finish and not be added to the long list of things that have died a slow death.
SO... If I had a glass of champagne I would raise it as a celebration to the end of a long speech that is basically just saying "here's to starting over - re-do's, re-thinking, and re-creating.... Wish me luck!"
love, Jess xx
