11. Read the Proverb of the day 3 months (not in a row) {All 3 Months Completed}

13. Go to bed before 10:30 23 times (not in a row) {I’m guessing I probably got around 4 of these in}

I’ve discovered that when I’m focused on writing, I also like ramping up on my reading. I think that’s because I’m incredibly inundated with words and the more well-crafted stories I read, the more inspired I become. It’s as if the more I write, the hungrier I am to read. 
And, as far as non-fiction goes, I did read some, I just didn’t finish any books…  

Traveling: 

2 Nights
New countries and states: None

What I’ve been Learning: 

I’ve been learning a lot this month about my writing. I’ve been training myself to sit down and work and focus with the time I have. It’s been good discipline to do what I need to do, not always what I want to do. I’ve been trying to get around 7 hours of writing work in each day. That hasn’t always happened, but it’s a good goal to shoot for. 
I’ve also been learning that sometimes what I want to do doesn’t coincide with what I’m supposed to be doing. I’m working on having a looser hold on my hopes and dreams so that I’m working with God instead of fighting against Him. I want my life to bring Him glory. 
This month I’ve had some struggles with the book I’m writing. There have been a lot of issues I’ve had to go through mentally and emotionally while working on this story and over all it’s been really good for me, but I’m eagerly awaiting the day I’ll be done with it. I really have grown a lot though, so it’s been good. It’s been a journey of learning to receive the grace that God is extending to me, because goodness, I’m so hard-headed at times. 


Other Things: 

I have glasses now (and I can truly say I see the world differently…). I worked on another book with my adopted parents. I co-hosted a baby shower for my best friend (and of course I got lots of books for the baby). I saw the first signs of spring. I started doing the Top Ten Tuesday Link-up. And I lived. I breathed. I learned. And I grew (not physically, thankfully). 
It’s been a busy month. In fact, I can hardly recall all that I did during this month. My brain seems to be fogging over each time I try to figure out what happened this month as apposed to what happened during February…

Now it’s your turn! What did YOU do in March?

    Looks like you've done a pretty good job!

    I just realized that Aidyl is your name backwards. Have to say that I think Lydia is a beautiful name. But what you did there is really neat.

    Hope this month is just as productive(and fun) for you!

    Haha, thanks! A lot of my friends actually call me Aidyl. For several years I was called Aidyl by my friends more than I was called Lydia. I like both names as well. 🙂
