Aprils tasks to accomplish were hit and miss with me, but I did indeed at least try each and every one of them in one way or another. The Chapter was titled " Lighten Up" . It was about parenthood...all my kids are out and about living their own young adult lives, but you never stop being a parent. I am very lucky to have a good relationship, even a close one with my three daughters. So I certainly could try to apply this chapter.
The tasks were * Sing in the morning....yeah I do not sing, not even in the shower. *Acknowledge the reality of peoples feelings....been a hell of a month for that one with all the family drama that was going on, so yeah, could not help but acknowledge! * Be a treasure house of happy memories...that was a mixed bag as well, but did pull up all the family photos and start going through them and many were happy memories indeed. * Take time for projects....well again, that kind of fits into the previous task this past month. Still working on it, it is a lot of work!
So now we are onto May, tomorrow as a matter of fact...nothing like waiting till the day before!! So let us take a look....
MAY....Be Serious About Play...Leisure
* Find more fun
*Take time to be silly
*Go off the path
*Start a collection
* Find more fun....I am all in. I need more fun in my life. And as the months warm up and hopefully hubby gets more spiffs, we can indeed have more fun!
|About as close as I get to "fun" as of late.|
*Take time to be silly...I have a very hard time with this. My husband not so much, he is always silly. But I would at least like to try to lighten up. I have been serious my whole life, and this past two years has added to that personality trait...but I can try.
|Another silly moment with my hubby...they are countless!|
*Go off the path...Not sure what this means, but we do plan to do a couple daycations and go off the beaten path. I shall have to get back to you on this one though, as I am not sure what it refers to.
|Most times I guess I stay on the path.|
*Start a collection...I do not have much room to start any kind of collection, but have started participating in Pintrest and so am collecting/sharing images...maybe that counts??
So there is the assignments/tasks for the month of May...let's get started! I am excited to add more happiness to my leisure life past sitting on the couch or in front of the computer ...how about you???
