Little bit of randomness - looking for your help  
I want to do something in 2014 - something seemingly random, I guess. You know how some people take a picture every day, or maybe write a poem? (I don't think I'd be able to accomplish either of these every day.)

I want to see if I can do one thing every day all year but I don't know what. It can't be too time consuming and it should be something I can share - to "prove" I've done it. Do y'all have any ideas?

Maybe learn something new everyday that you could share with the rest of us? Could be an inspirational quote, something about your favorite author, something historical or geographical. Could even be a recipe or something about dogs. :-)

Just a thought. Good luck with your project.

Excellent ideas!!

I'll post my list once I decide what I'm doing - I'm going to do something different each day of the week so I don't get bored with them. Which is something I would do.

I has a list!
Put lotion on your feet.
Put lotion on your elbows.
Say thank you to the sky/god/grace/whomever once a day.
Read a new recipe.
Practice your evil laugh.
Practice your giggle.
Throw away one thing you haven't used in a year.
Vacuum one rug.
Post something that happened during the day that you are grateful for, even if it's the same thing as the day before.
Tell someone thank you.
Tell someone they are appreciated.
Compliment a stranger.
Learn to pronounce one word in a foreign language.
Make a list of anything.
Smile before you close your eyes.

Sure some seem silly, but if you can do ANY thing every day for a year then you can do anything!

Re: I has a list!
you are the BEST!!!

This list is so awesome, I think I'm going to do one thing a day - like every Monday I'll practice my evil laugh!

Being ADD as I am, I don't know that I could do the same thing 365 times. But I can do 7 things 52 times!

Thank you thank you thank you.

(BTW - the first time I glanced at this, I thought the first one was "put lotion on your teeth." Hmmm…)

Re: I has a list!
I am the best! Thank you for noticing.

And ewwww don't put the lotion on your teeth. Maybe next year, but definitely not 2014.

I love the idea of something every day of the week, hey, we should make a comm where we do something every day. Oh, wait...

Sorry, clearly I need to sleep!

Take a picture of something that you find interesting or something that made you smile.

If you see a quote that touches you in some way you could share it.

I really like the idea of a picture. I just told kaige I think I'm going to do a different thing each day - so at the end of the year, I should have 52 pictures.

I will post my list once I decide what I'm going to do each day!

Thank you, BB!

That sounds like a plan!

Curious to see your list.

I like your idea of something different for each day of the week. I may steal it! Here are a couple of ideas:
Breathe deeply for 5 minutes.
Read a poem or something inspirational.
Listen to a new song/artist.

These are fabulous suggestions.

Please do "steal" the idea! Next time this year, I want to be able to say - I DID THIS! (Possibly 7 times; or 52 times? IDEK)

Let's do this!

Great idea! I've always like the thought of taking a picture every day. Will be interested to see what you choose!

Join us in the madness!

I'll post my final list once I've decided on it!

Let's do this!!

I am with the learning new facts. Even if they are useless facts. ( http://www.brownielocks.com/month2.html )

Happy Bacon Day!

These are awesome!! I used to "celebrate" these sorts of holidays at my old job. (Could be one reason it's no longer my current job?)

Definitely adding these holidays to the list!!!

Thanks BB.
