Other Cool 365 Projects

What's a life if you're not enjoying it and making the most of every day?!! I was going to say I didn't know where this new-found energy and enthusiasm in my life came from but, it's what I prayed for and God has been reaffirming it to me in His Word through verses like "So I saw that there is nothing better for people than to be happy in their work. That is why we are here! No one will bring us back from death to enjoy life after we die. (Ecclesiastes 3:22)" and "To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life--this is indeed a gift from God. God keeps such people so busy enjoying life that they take no time to brood over the past. (Ecclesiastes 5:19b-20)" and "The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. (John 10:10)"[NLT] So yea...that's my source.

On the 365 projects, I think it's a great personal exercise that any one in any area can benefit from. If you missed it...365 projects are simply something you choose to do daily for any personal reason like sharpening your skills in a certain area or just plain making life more interesting. Maybe it's for charity.

Even if you don't have the time to do a project every single day *raises hand*, you can still do something a couple times a week...or maybe even once a week. This is a really good exercise for those that may be in a creative rut. You could write a song a day, take a picture a day, write a poem a day, write a page of that new book you've been meaning to get around to...a day and the list goes on. By the end of the year, you'll have amassed a volume of works to draw inspiration from or move forward with and who knows what path one of your daily projects will take you down? It makes life fun and more enjoyable because you're doing something you love and working daily towards a goal or goals that you set for yourself.
