The beginning of the year provides many opportunities to start anew for me: new years day, start of school, my birthday, first day of February, Chinese new years and now lent. Once lent rolls around, I can finally get serious after having a few practice rounds on keeping resolutions. Lent is also a little over 6 weeks which is much more mentally manageable than a year. When I learned over 10 years ago going to Catholic school that Lent is not just about giving up something but also adding something to your life I took that to heart. Since giving up something never works I dedicate from now until Easter, April 4th, I will blog every day. Note it is also accepted for Sundays to be rest days but I hopefully will disregard the break. This is to prove to myself that I do have something worth saying every day. It will be a mini version of all the 365 projects I’ve ever thought up. It will be the start of taking Gretchen Rubin’s advice to Do Something EVERY DAY. I love tracking my progress and documenting my days so what better way to do it than blog.
Today was filled with self doubt and worry but as always I must have faith in the future I cannot see. After looking up potential internships, motivation kicked in to continue my work by viewing it as building my portfolio. A good talk with Melanie over fruit tarts also helped <3
