WEEK 1 #MEETYOURSELFMARCH
As you may have noticed, my first go-around with Caroline Winegeart’s 30 Days to Better Hand-Lettering Course lacked a little in the follow-through department. I did make it through almost two weeks… which for me actually isn’t at all that bad. In the plus column, I really enjoyed the practice and I did feel like I made some progress, which you can read about in this handy dandy post I wrote.
That’s right, I’m taking another stab at it with @ckelso‘s March challenge: #MeetYourselfMarch. Caroline has arranged a month full of in-depth, thought-provoking prompts to help us all get back in touch… with ourselves.
The good news is, I’m not giving up!
Maybe my practices in follow-through are working after all?!
It may not seem like a lot, but seven days is plenty of time to start noticing changes. In addition to my first few weeks of progress (including: confidence, control, & creativity), I have also noticed improvements in the following areas:
So far, so good… looks like I’m back on track!
Seven days, seven prompts, seven posts. Check!
- Daring – I feel like I’ve been going out on a few more ledges lately (ya know, in a good way!)
- Speed – My productivity has increased greatly, larger projects take less and less time
- Unexpected perk – I think my every day handwriting has actually improved… which I suppose isn’t completely out of the ordinary, but certainly an unexpected byproduct!
- Day 1: 3 words you’d use to describe yourself
- Day 2: 3 things that would make up your ideal morning
- Day 3: one thing you’re grateful for
- Day 4: one memory from childhood that puts a smile on your face
- Day 5: the name of one friend that truly sees the real you
- Day 6: one thing that you could have done better today
- Day 7: one thing you love about yourself
Even though I didn’t make it all the way through February, I am hopeful for March. I am also hoping that follow-through is like a muscle… the more I work at it, the easier it gets. What daily projects have you been working on? How are they coming along? Leave a comment below!
