31 Day Reset Challenge – Update

Well, I’m on Day 9 of the challenge, and it has been an eye opening one to say the least. I’ve learned a lot about myself, even though I’ve fallen behind in some of my challenges. Having to completely and thoroughly assess my life has proven to be both heart-wrenching and inspiring; for so long, I’ve thought as my life as negative, while in reality, it’s actually getting to a turning point where I can create major, lasting change for years to come. I’m excited to learn more about me and where I want my life to go while connecting with other people who are taking the steps to reset their lives in 2011.

I’ve linked up with two of my friends and their website How to Make It Moments to track my progress in this challenge. Not only does it provide exposure for the challenge, but it also holds me accountable to having a timeline, and completing my tasks as scheduled.

I’m excited to see the transformation in my life, and in the lives of those that I personally know that are taking the challenge with me. Here’s to an awesome start to 2011! 🙂

31 Day Reset Challenge

Well folks, it’s a new year…I know typically we get caught up on the page of the calendar turning and we magically think that everything will be different once the clock strikes 12:00 AM on January 1 of . Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite happen that way. I have been saying for the past couple of months that I’d like to see a change in my own life, and I finally came across a means to an end to get that done. I believe my dear friend Max sent me the challenge from Rosetta Thurman and her website to do a 31 Day Reset on your life. A lightbulb went off in my head, and I immediately committed to taking the month of January 2011 to do this challenge. If nothing else, it will tell me the positives and negatives in my own life, and I can begin to make concrete, lasting decisions on how to maintain and improve the positives and correct the negatives.

For Day 1, the challenge was to pick a mantra. After not much thought at all (because it jumped out at me so quickly), I decided to make mine the Serenity Prayer. For those of you that may not be familiar, it reads “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.” It’s so what I need the most work on in my life because I have a bad habit of overanalyzing everything that comes my way, and spending a lot of energy on things I have no control over. I hope to have a better grasp on that by the end of this challenge.

For Day 2, I had to conduct a life assessment. I’m not going to go into extensive detail here, but the thing that stuck out to me the most was that the things that I don’t particularly like about my life are all able to be changed. Seeing it on paper made me realize that I can take steps to eradicate these negative things out of my life and begin to work more on the positive.

I know this challenge will be one for the books; I hope that something I write here helps someone out…until next time, folks!
