~~~ like dancing, laughing, singing, learning, reading, and perhaps just being.~~~~
I was reading a journal I created last year (but somehow never got around to using…) and today’s title was one of the motivational quotes that I included. So now as I am in a bit of a break between work projects, I’m gearing up to add some ‘ing’ to the next couple of weeks.
‘ing’ # 1– Learning Spanish
My adorable husband is convinced that I’m just not trying hard enough to learn Spanish, his native language. I’m convinced I don’t have the “language gene” in me. The next few weeks will be the test. I’ve toyed with the idea of hiring a private tutor or even having my housekeeper teach me. Enter “Instant Immersion” super deluxe edition with dvds, workbooks and computer dvds. I’m going to dedicate 1 hour a day for the next couple of weeks to this. If this doesn’t work, nothing will!
Have you tried to learn a language (after college age)? What worked?
‘ing’ #2 – Dancing (and laughing) more
I love to dance. Not very good at it but it makes me smile and laugh. The husband and I tried to take tango classes a couple of years ago but I couldn’t stop myself from laughing when we “got serious” and in the “tango pose”. 2 lessons and I had to stop because I was disrupting the class. Maybe it’s nervousness, maybe it just releases my inner joy. Enter Kinect and Dance Central. I begged for the Kinect when it came out and we’ve had it for a while now. I giggle like mad when I dance to it so it needs to be a solitary venture until I get more comfortable with the moves. Again with the time off in the next couple of weeks (especially solo time a the house) I should be at master level in no time! Keep checking back for progress reports!
Does anyone else giggle when they dance? Why, oh why does it happen???
‘ing’ #3 – Reading (for me and not for work, news, internet, etc.)
On my reading table now … (I’ll be busy…)
in the kitchen now …
I’m on a bit of a Bethenny kick right now. Just really like how she shoots straight and is in her own way down to earth. Watch her show … it will add some laughing to your Monday. And yes I know the first kitchen book contradicts the last two… what can I say except I am a work in progress.
and finally a few ‘ings’ to do less of
These are things I want to do a bit less of these next few weeks and hopefully it will trickle into my core….
What ‘ing’ do you want to add to your day? What ‘ing’ do you want to remove? Let’s start a swap!
