The beginning of a new month can be exciting, frustrating, inspiring, and encouraging (not exactly in that order, but you get the idea). This fall I started a new chapter in my life as I pursue another adventure to get closer to achieving my purpose in life. With every new chapter, I try to add something new to make the experience wholesome. On twitter I came across GG Renee’s #30Layers30Days Self-Discovery Challenge. If you sign up for her newsletter, for the month of September she will send an e-mail with prompts to get you to reflect on what your reality is now and what your future can be. I love this idea!
This past summer I got a new journal as a gift and had been pondering what type of thoughts to fill it with. When I was younger I would write daily about my activities for the day and slowly…got…bored. A few years ago I started an idea journal, filling it with visions and things I wanted to accomplish. I have yet to fill that journal, so I wanted this new one to take on a different direction. I’m going to start it with this challenge. I will be tweeting some of my responses and will probably do a blog post about the whole experience at the end of the month.
I would like to share with you Day 1:
START. STOP. CONTINUE.
START: What do you want to start doing? What do you want more of in your life? What feelings, what activities, what energy? What baby step can you take today?
I want to start being open to new connections and opportunities that are beneficial to my life.
STOP: What have you had enough of? What are you tolerating or feeding into that is not adding value to your life? What area of your life is begging for more boundaries?
I’m going to stop retreating to observer-mode when I feel uncertain about my surroundings.
CONTINUE: What habits or trends do you want to continue? What’s been working for you? What can you do to ensure you keep it going?
I’m going to continue being true to myself regardless if it makes others uncomfortable.
