So often, I find myself racing through my life, so focused on where Iâ€™m going that I donâ€™t stop to enjoy where I am. My friend Sara said to me once that we are so busy acting as humans doing that we forget we are humans being. My God, did this ever resonate with me. So, recently, I have really tried to focus on acting as a human being, and because of this, I am so enjoying the process of creating and experiencing each and every moment.
This being said, I was reading an article recently about an amazing artist/actress/writer/filmmaker named Miranda July, and I found out about an online project she has been doing with another gentleman for the last few years. Itâ€™s such a beautiful thing that sheâ€™s doingâ€¦ She and her partner come up with different assignments for anyone to participate in accomplishing, and they have created a site for people to post and share the completion of these assignments. If you want to look at it the site is learningtoloveyoumore.com, and itâ€™s awesome! I was so inspired by this concept that i decided to make my own project like this for my site. I was sharing this idea with one of my best friends, and she told me about something that she and her husband used to do in which they would create an annual calendar filled with their own “celebration days”â€”days dedicated to celebrating or doing something they loved!
I thought this was wonderful and combined her idea with that of Miranda July… So, this is what I have come up withâ€”an annual calendar that has 4 celebration days per month that are dedicated to different projects/assignments/creations/or events! Here is the first set! I hope you enjoy and participate in these fabulous adventures with me!
All my love,
Upcoming Mack Event
