So. I think I am going to give this thing a shot. The 100 Day Project. Check out the hashtag #the100dayproject for details, but what I am going to try is 100 days of creating. Each day for the next 100 I am going to try and create – be that sewing or knitting or something else – so this is my commitment to myself.
Something I have been trying to do for the past month or two, is to create something every day. Now there have only been a couple of times that I have been a little creative as to what “within the day” looks like…
Picture if you will me on the couch at about 1.30am knitting and listening to the sound of rain on my phone…
Mother… why aren’t you in bed asleep?
Well child (who for the record is 22), I am trying to make sure that I am creating something everyday.
But Mother, I need your help with my uni assessment tomorrow and I want you in peak shape for that.
You get the picture.
So starting in April (the 4th – yesterday in my timezone) I am going to be doing The 100 Day Project. Now if you click on the embedded link that was just back there, it will take you to the Instagram tag for the project. People from all across the world are doing all sorts of habits, creative things and generally focusing on something for 100 days. I am going to be interested to see how productive this makes my creating.
I am working on a few different things at the moment, having finished a quilt I feel that it is my responsibility to start at least another two new ones. Between these and participating in my first ever quilting bee, I actually have things that I am interested in doing and finishing.
What I would really like to get out of this, is proof to myself that if I prioritise something, it actually does happen and it doesn’t have to happen at the cost of my other great companion – my PhD.
Well, hopefully I can get to blogging about something else before May, but the guilt I have over not writing in this space as much as I would like is something I am just going to have to deal with – or write more – my choice.
