enter the 30 day challenge

discipline.
something i could probably use more of in my life.
{a freewheeling spirit is not without consequences.}

sure, i’ve made countless new year’s resolutions {most of which i kept for no considerable amount of time}, i’ve faithfully honored the season of lent since my old episcopal high school days roughly 20 years ago {yikes!}, and like most fun-loving humans, i’ve given up alcohol here and there for a month or two in order to cleanse my mind and liver.  but tomorrow i embark on a threefold 30 day challenge (inspired by this ted talk) which i hope will become a new often-daunting-yet-always-rewarding habit for the foreseeable future.

1. sunrise meditation each morning.  {because obviously.}
2. write 1,500-1,700 words a day.  {because i want to write a book and according to NaNoWriMo, if you write 1,667 words a day, every day, for thirty days straight, you’ll end up with a 50,000 word book.}  egads!
3. turn every judgment + assumption + negative thought into a positive—all day, every day.  {because this will undoubtedly be the most challenging and potentially the most beneficial.}

results to follow.  probably would’ve been ideal to start with just one challenge, but since i’ve already got about 40 more in the queue, why not be overambitious?  the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  my mamaw always said so.

here goes…
