Learning each and every day

My quest to edify myself a bit every day

365 days later

Uh, okay, I THOUGHT this post had been published . . . apparently not! Maybe the Habits and Impatience post will make more sense after reading this one?

One year ago today, I posted my first “this is what I learned today” post. I really intended to post something new every day. That didn’t happen. Sometimes I had to post several days’ worth of learning in one day. Other times several days would pass without me learning a single thing. But I still think I managed to learn/try 365 new things given that there were a good number of days where I learned/tried 2-3 new things. One thing I did discover is that learning didn’t just happen. Sometimes I would just randomly bump into some interesting information or learn something new. But, most of the time, I had to go in search. The easiest place to find new information is in the kitchen. This year my family and I have tried countless new recipes. I’d say that about 1/3 of them were amazing, 1/3 were mediocre and 1/3 were awful. I still enjoyed trying out all of the recipes, even the flops. As a result, I’ve gained a vast amount of kitchen knowledge such that I’m pretty comfortable saying that I know my way around a kitchen. If you asked me for specific things that I learned, I probably wouldn’t be able to tell you. But, I do now that I can whip up something for dinner out of seemingly nothing, and I’ve gotten quite good at finding substitutions last minute!

Overall, I’m glad I embarked on this journey. If nothing else, it has gotten me to keep my eyes open for new information and experiences. If I keep that up from now until the end, I’ll have gained a vast amount of knowledge that I otherwise may not have encountered. In my book, that’s a win.

So where do I go from here? I had thought about saying farewell and inviting you to follow me on my other blog, A Diva Moment, something you are still welcome to do. But, I’ve decided to continue blogging here with a slightly different goal. Rather than learning something new each day, I’m going to try and organize my life and household a little bit each week. Notice, I said week and not day. This past year has taught me that expecting myself to do something every day is unreasonable. I’m thinking a week is much more reasonable. Anyway, so each week, I’ll be popping in and sharing the little things that I’ve done to eliminate the chaos in our household. I hope you’ll stay with me as I start this new journey!
