The Joy Diet: A Journey To My Happy & Creative Self
As usual my twin sister Sharon of Gemini Visions is always on the cutting edge of the blogging, twittering and facebook world. She mentioned to me about a blogger book club that is going to reading The Joy Diet by Martha Beck. At first, I said to myself, "you know I do not have the time to read something like this and keep up with the postings." Then I simply went to the The Next Chapter The Joy Diet Book Club blogger website by Jamie Ridler, a certified professional co-active coach and was totally hooked in.
You see the actual begin date was this past Friday. However, in my usual late way, I just read about it in detail today and thus am starting today. I did not have the book so just clicked on my trusty Amazon link and ordered it. I will be getting it by Tuesday so I can too join in on the fun and learning.
The first chapter in the book is called Nothing. So which will be a REAL challenge for me, I will dedicate myself for this first week to occupying time doing NOTHING. What will that be? I will post this experience on Friday.
Here is how it works. We begin each chapter each week and post on the following Friday. Here is the schedule:
Sept 18: Welcome & start your week of Nothing
Sept 25: Post about nothing & start your week of Truth
Oct 2: post about Truth & start your week of Desire
Oct 9: post about Desire & start your week of Creativity
Oct 16: post about Creativity & start your week of Risk
Oct 23: post about Risk & start your week of Treats
Oct 30: post about Treats & start your week of Play (how cool is it Treats is almost on Halloween!)
Nov 6: post about Play & start your week of Laughter
Nov 13: post about Laughter & start your week of Connection
Nov 20: post about Connection & Start your week of Feasting
Nov 27: post about feasting & celebrate!
Sounds like fun and it will give me the opportunity to be able to focus on doing what I can to keep my brain active and creative!

Check in on Friday on how I was able to successfully implement the art of "Nothing" this week.
I am an emerging self taught doll artist who is learning how to improve my craft. I started doll making 3 years ago and stopped due to entrepreneurial pursuits. Now with the help of my mentor Francine Haskins, I am beginning the craft again with much more vigor and interest. Please share this journey with me.
