Checking in for August for my "Designing a Well-Lived Life" blogging. This is about making small changes during the year to make larger changes.
Writing more / designing more: I've been working on editing my "Mediocre Programmer" book, but it's going slower than I would like. Our schedule changed so I haven't been able to take advantage of getting up early like I used to. That bugs me a bit. But at least I've been doing some writing. The Designing has taken a back-seat at the moment, though I'm hoping to get back to it later this month.
Engage more with people, not things: Haven't been able to do this much since things are now getting busy and we're seeing people less and less.
Blogging more: At least I'm getting one post out a month with this challenge. :) But I'm also going to be using the blog for my monthly challenge.
Getting out of debt: Slowly plugging away at this. If anyone wants to help please let me know. :)
Supporting creators in sustainable ways: Liberapay lost their primary payment processor (Mangopay) so I've been working on moving my contributions around.
Physical health: I've not given this as much focus as it needs.
Kindness: As the year wears on I'm finding my kindness to myself starting to wane. Starting to feel pressure to get things done and not see yet-another-year go by. But that's also putting undue strain on me so am focusing more on doing things in the moment rather than being unkind to myself.
Mindfulness: I've picked up a habit of reading each morning, which is helpful. Also finding myself taking a breather whenever I start to feel frustrated or overwhelmed. That has been helping out with being kind to myself (see above).
