The Blogger Tribe Facebook-page is a place to share your own blog posts and read other peoples posts, and the aim is to build a community based on sharing and commenting. In addition to that, the lovely ladies behind the Blogger Tribe launched a Sunday Lately-series. The Sunday Lately- posts are built around five words and the words change every week. The words for this weeks Sunday Lately are updating, remembering, needing, wearing and being.
This is my first ever Sunday Lately-post, because I only joined the tribe yesterday. So here it goes, hopefully I'm doing the series justice!
- Updating - :: What have I been updating this week? I "updated" my dinner table into a sewing table by clearing all the clutter that had been compiling since the holidays. I promised to sew my fiancé a scarf some time ago, but nothing is more demoralizing than first having to clean up before you can even bust out the sewing machine (or serger in this case). A better word for my situation might be "reinstate".
- Remembering - :: I bought a new calendar. Not a big deal, but I chose a smaller calendar than I used last year *gasp*. I did it because hopefully I'll graduate this spring, and I don't have that many classes to keep track of anymore. A smaller calendar means that this calendar addict/micromanager is letting go of the tight reins... slowly...very slowly. It's hard to feel zen and "in the moment" when your calendar is bursting at its seams. I'm on the look out for zen here people.
- Wearing - :: This week I smiled when I realized that both the top and the pants that I was wearing were me-mades! Both of them are in heavy rotation, and that makes me happy for many reasons: it means that I have gotten the fit, fabric and the pattern right. The small victories in life, right?
- Being - :: Just be in the moment. That sounds simple enough, but it's one of the most difficult things for me. My mind always rushes ahead, which means that I'm not enjoying what I'm doing right now, because my mind is somewhere else. So yes, the word "being" is an important word for me and one I strive towards every day.
So there you have it folks! Did I get the concept right? or did I ramble too much? This was so much fun, I'll be looking forward to every Sunday Lately-post from now on :)
