Week 16 – The week I did not stay at home

The mistake I do not want to repeat this year is to put too much pressure on myself with projects about being rich and always be doing something important.

I am full of projects but I focus less on the outcome and the source of revenue these activities could bring than on the pure pleasure of trying new things and keeping up with the ones I like.

Week 6 – Readings of the week, from Kids Travel Guides to Naples Based Novel

The good news is, the 52 Weeks Challenge is in fact pushing me to look for new subjects and start or pursue new activities every week. Bottom line is, these activities are not one week long activities so I am becoming kind of overwhelmed . In a good way of course.
