On January 10, I mentioned a few things I planned to do in terms of reinvigorating myself, with “Reinvigorate” being my One Word for 2016. This is an update, possible revision of what I said there, in those posts:
- Read more nonfiction than I did the last few years and share with you here and social media what I glean from my reading both nonfiction and fiction: Two of the total three books I’ve read so far were nonfiction, with The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and the other, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates that I finished on Sunday. I shared some highlights from the latter on my Tumblr blog.
- My goal, I said on January 10, was to take a photo a day that encapsulates “reinvigorate” for that day and sharing it on social media with the hashtag “#reinvigorate2016”. I since have revised that to photos as they come up. I’m doing well with the photos from my exercises, but need to add more for my reading.
- My last goal, I said on January 10, was sing mainly two categories here on this blog and also on Tumblr: Books and Life, using the hashtag “#reinvigorate2016” and maybe adding two others for books and life, specifically tailored to me, to be used on Tumblr and Instagram. I am using two categories here, but so far, I haven’t written a post on just one or the other. I only have done posts like this on both categories and my new All the Books! All The Life! posts on Sunday that incorporate both categories. Also the hashtag “#reinvigorate2016” hasn’t been used as much on Tumblr and Instagram and I’ve added two other hashtags on Tumblr: #stillunfinishedallthebooks and #stillunfinishedallthelife to separate tags for books and life.
So I’m still not sure how this is all working or if it is, but I’m just going to keep plugging away, giving updates at least once a week on my One Word: Reinvigorate. Beyond that, I really don’t know how it all will pan out. Hopefully you’ll stick around to see.
How are your New Year’s goals, resolutions, One Words going so far?
