Ravelympics Events

I have found myself, during the past 24 hours, coming up with more and more projects I could either do or finish to add to my Ravelympics Team agenda. It's a chance to challenge myself. And to work through some projects that I've promised myself.

Why do we promise ourselves things and then never follow through? Have you done this, and then, months later, feel a bit let down because you never achieved said goal?

I know that there will be athletes at these games who use questionable means to achieve their goals, but there are also athletes who work hard, day in and day out, training and practicing endlessly to get where they want to go.

I'm hoping that I can make use of some of the pent-up energy I feel, because of the waiting and uncertainties of life at the moment, and direct this energy into achieving some of my other goals.

Some of you know that I started, over a year ago, the program 101 Goals in 1001 Days. I'm not really folllowing that website, but at least you can get an idea about the program. Some of my goals have been achieved. Others are still in progress. And of course, some I haven't begun to work on yet. A couple of these are knitting-related.

The next 17 days should provide me the opportunity to test myself and my skills. The goal isn't a gold medal, but finished garments, published patterns and a new spin on my creativity.
