As the year is drawing to a close, I feel like my experiment has been a success. While there is still a lot of room for improvement, I feel like my original goal of being happier has been met. It’s true that I still don’t always keep up with my hygiene, my diet, and some of the other goals that I set for myself, but the main goal of being happier has been achieved.
So my question is what do I do now? My original intention was to write a book about my experiences and outline steps to take each month to help other people to hopefully achieve what I have achieved. I still may write that book, but I don’t feel like that will help people enough. I suppose I am being a bit arrogant in assuming that people would listen to me. But since my experiment worked, I wanted to share what I learned with others. I also feel like others will need a way to be held accountable as well as having a support network. That is something that a book cannot do. I am considering creating either a website or Facebook group designed to help other people follow similar steps to help themselves, also with a support network. Is this something that people would be interested in? Please comment and let me know!
Also, I have been debating what I should do with my blog once the year is over. As much as I enjoyed writing about my daily life, there are a number of reasons why I feel like it would be freeing to stop. It’s sometimes been tough to write every day when I felt like I had so much else to do. I find that now as the year is coming to an end, most of my entries got longer. I also felt a little bad about discussing some of the more personal things about my friends, family, and relationships, even though I tried to change enough names and facts to make them difficult to identify. I could still write when I was dealing with something particularly troubling in my life. Or I could write about other things. I found a 30 day blogging challenge that I might attempt. Or I could post memes and articles about each months focus. Again, please comment and let me know what you think and what you’d like to see me write about. I’ll look forward to hearing from all of you!
