Yesterday I was able to check off 8/10 of the items on my to-do-list! This is progress especially since the 2 items I did not complete were “workout” and “don’t worry be happy.” Those are both things that I am fully capable of doing even on those days that I don’t feel motivated.
Like today, I don’t feel like working out and I am feeling anxiety around trying out the gym for the 1st time in my community, but I will give it a try. What’s the worst thing that could happen?
Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?
I think I was better at setting goals and reaching them when I was a child. When I was 13 I decided that I wanted to do the “Young Artists Festival” for violin. In this festival we were required to learn and memorize a piece from 4 different periods. I learned violin pieces from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern periods. On the day of the festival we would perform our pieces from memory for a panel of judges. That year I was one of the youngest contestants to perform. It was such a wonderful learning experience for me.
These are the pieces that I learned:
Baroque: Bach Violin Sonata BWV 1001 G minor 4 Presto
Classical: Mozart Concerto #3 in G
Romantic: Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in e minor 3rd mvt.
Modern: Praeludium and Allegro by Fritz Kriesler
