Project 52: Week 3

For a recap of this project checkout the first post.

A wonderful New Year’s resolution pep talk from Ana-Marie Cox, “It’s not how many times you fall away from your goal. It’s about how often you come back to it.” Ana hosts one of my favorite podcasts, With Friends Like These.

This Week’s Project

Project: Finally get my passwords organized 

Length of Project: This week

I used to be forever forgetting or mixing up my passwords. I was determined to get this sorted out in a safe and successful way. I signed up for 1Password and quickly got all my passwords stored safely. (This project did not take a whole week.)

Project: Write and mail Christmas thank you notes

Length of Project: This week

I’m usually pretty good about getting my thank you notes out quickly, but for some reason I just felt behind after the holidays this year. Giving myself this assignment this week was the best way to get caught up. I took a few minutes with my coffee in the morning and wrote a few a day and was caught up before the end of the week.

On Going Projects

Project: Read one book a month 

Length of Project: All year

For January, I am reading Nothing Feels Good: Punk Rock, Teenagers, and EMO by Andy Greenwald. I’m almost halfway through.

I’m using Goodreads to keep track of my progress on this goal. 

Project: Gratitude Journal

Length of Project: All year

Back in 2017, a lot of the women I follow on Instagram seemed to be embracing the gratitude journal practice. (It think it’s because it was such a tough year and we all needed an extra does of optimism and positive thinking.) My parents gave me this beautiful journal for Christmas and on January 1st I started writing in it.

I still haven’t found the perfect time of day for keeping up this practice. But I have managed to write a line or two every day.

Project: Dry January

Length of Project: The month of January

After a few weeks of no alcohol of any kind we’ve decided to allow ourselves the single cocktail or glass of wine with friends.
