I’m someone who likes to keep busy and stay relevant. Since this is my first attempt at having a blog, I’ve already achieved my purpose of doing something new.
If you’re new to this blog, here’s what it’s all about:
New experiences keep your life fresh and interesting – a constant stream of discoveries. So I’m having fun with the ABC Life – an orderly way to expand my life with fun places to visit and fascinating things to do, read, eat and experience. Admittedly, I get enthusiastic over the tiniest things but then often lose that initial interest rather quickly. Another reason why the ABC Life is for me.
The ABC Life is where you do as many things within a month that you can – starting with a specific letter. Obviously it all starts with “A.” So for me, October was the A month. During that month, and the months that follow, I try to cover as many categories as I comfortably can, without feeling like it’s a race. It’s an add-on, not the end all.
The main categories are:
Visiting/going to a city or type of place. ( Like A could be going to Austin. Or if travel was out of the question, it could be going to an aviation exhibit or to a local airport and browsing through their gift shop. )
Doing something specific. For A it could be antiquing or aerobics.
Trying a new food or recipe.
Studying a subject.
Additional categories are wide open but could include: reading a book whose title or first or last name starts with the letter, watching a movie that starts with the letter, going to a restaurant or drinking a specific wine.)
There are “points” in my ABC Life. Doesn’t have to be the same for you, but I like the points concept – sort of the thrill I get from lists. But the rules for the points can change and when there’s no one making them but you, you can adjust them as you go. I give myself 2 points for a main category and 1 point for additional categories. I’m aiming for at least 8 points a month.
