I’ve been meaning to pull together my own list of simple goals for ages, ever since reading about this lovely project over on ‘A Beautiful Mess‘ (the lovely blog of Elsie Flannigan). The idea behind the project is to commit to some personal challenges that, once overcome, will help make your life more beautiful!
- Cut my hair short and make it red. I know this is technically two things in one … but they’re related so I figure that’s OK. I’ve gone most colours both light and dark, and most in-between, but never any shade of red. That’s gotta change.
- Unsubscribe from unnecessary email lists. I’ve gone through phases of subscribing to lots of different email groups like newsletters and store updates. The reality is that I don’t actually read many of them, so they’re just cluttering up my inbox with junk. Streamlining of information is necessary.
- Become a better online ‘citizen’. I want to be more present in the online world. That means a few different things, like being more consistent with my blogging and more connected with my wonderful readers. I am also in desperate need of updating my neglected blogroll.
- Shop at the local fruit & veg markets. I pretty much detest everything about supermarket shopping. I recently discovered that I have another, much better option in the form of a local fresh food market. So it’s time to load up the environmentally friendly reusable shopping bags and head to the markets for lovely fresh produce – I’ll be saving money, supporting local growers, and perhaps more importantly, saving my sanity.
If you’d like to get involved with your own list of simple goals, you’ll find the ‘rules’ over on A Beautiful Mess. I do hope you come along and get involved too, it’s sure to be fun and rewarding! I’ll be sure to keep you updated with my progress …
