Added to my 100 happy days was the fact that I started a new Artist's Way class 60 days or so into the project. This means that in addition to finding something that made me happy every day, I've been doing a lot of work on myself. I've done the Artist's Way several times before, but there is always more to learn about oneself. And, people are like onions; peel back a layer and there are just more layers waiting.
All I can say is that there have been definite changes in me, and the people around have seen it, too. It's a good thing.
So, in the spirit of keeping up with my daily blogging (which also has helped me grow), I've decided start a new project each month. 100 days was a very long time for the happiness project, but I think one month will be a nice amount of time. So perhaps one month I'll blog each day about what I'm grateful for (I think that will be powerful), and another month I'll do yoga each day.
I'm open to ideas for monthly projects... please comment below if you've got any great ideas.
This time around I want to exercise my creative muscle in a way that I don't normally (I call this artistic cross-training). So for the next 32 days, I will bring you a haiku a day. (I've been all about the haiku lately. Don't ask me why...)
Today's haiku, inspired by a trip to the Botanic Gardens:
sitting near bamboo
aromas or a romance
words are confusing
Here's an idea: why don't you haiku with me? Simply post a haiku to the comments below. You could even take mine and build on it. No hard and fast rules here. I'm sticking to the 5-7-5 format. First and third lines have 5 syllables, and the second has seven.
Come on, it'll be fun!
