What is summer like in your corner of the globe? Here in our Aegean home, summer’s all about a laid back, slower pace. Ramadan started this week, so many friends and neighbors will be lying low during the hot afternoons while they fast long hours from food and water.
I’m taking advantage of extra free time to start a new project. In a few weeks, I’ll start a new blog, and I’m already excited about it. Change and variety add spice to my life, so I decided to try a new angle on blogging.
"Do What You Can Plan"
One thing that’s encouraging me to make time for a new project is Holly Gerth’s Do What You Can Plan: 21 Days to Making Any Area of Your Life Better. Holly’s book is great encouragement for taking baby steps towards big dreams that seem out of reach. My ultimate dream is writing a book, but for right now, blogging seems like a more attainable goal for this home schooling, church planting mom.
Meant to be read over 21 days, the book has a short devotional reading and an application point for each day. Holly talks about starting small, doing what you can each day, and not waiting for the perfect time to start!
I have other summer projects that aren’t so exciting, like de-cluttering and organizing closets and drawers, but I’m trying to set aside some time each day to work on my new writing project. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
How about you?
Do you have any summer projects that you’re working on? Any dreams you wish you had time for? I’d love to hear how you’re spending your summer.
