I’m not doing December Daily this year. I know. *Gasp!* *Shock!* What kind of Ali Edwards fangirl am I REALLY?
I am, however, doing 30 Days of Lists in December (click here to register and join me).
The truth is …. I need a break. I’m having a rough year. I am never going to finish my December Daily album for 2014. The memories associated are just too painful.
But I need something. Something easy and finishable. Something JUST FOR ME.
I can’t wrap my head around anything more than that.
I currently live with my parents. My family will be going on a vacation together AND my parents will hopefully be buying a house in December sometime and may need to do some work on it, or maybe we’ll be moving or … who knows.
Honestly. I don’t have anything for sure planned for December except 1 trip — and that gets its own album.
I don’t need to do December Daily.
But I DO need to record my right-now story. I need to not let this weird time of transition just pass me by. I need to make sure I have a project that is just for me, since the last 10+ years of my life I’ve been recording the story of an ‘us.’
So thank the lord for 30 Days of Lists.
I plan on just being …. simple. Easy. Low-key. Totally 100% doable in 5 minutes each day. Because oh man will December be busy anyway — even without anything specifically holiday-ish planned.
Maybe next year I’ll be ready for December Daily again … but in the meantime 30 Days of Lists is perfect for me.
P.S. How are you documenting your December?
