One of my rituals for each new year is to choose a word to influence me for the year. My word for 2011 is EXPERIMENT. To support my EXPERIMENTAL focus, I commit to post the results of a new experiment each Sunday of this year.
Ya know what? They still got married. He still got kicked off Idol. Those horrible storms still came. And I had more time.
What surprised me most about this week was how much time I spent explaining why I wasn’t watching TV all week. It got to be more than funny.
The biggest thing I learned was that while I’m absolutely content without TV, I like it. And I did miss it.
Will I continue my TV-fast after Sunday? No.
Will I be more mindful before turning on the TV just to fill time and space? ABSOLUTELY.
So, aside from The Wedding, Idol and The Weather Channel, what did I miss this week?
