I started on August 1st in a “secret” group on Facebook, 30 days 30 walks/runs starting August 1st. I also started a meet your goals challenge on Instagram that started the beginning of August. One of things that I wanted to do was take time to write more. I have not been doing as much as I have wanted since I started because I have been fighting these crazy allergies. But, I am glad that I have these plans to motivate me.
It is funny, the internet giveth, but it sure as heck taketh away at the same time. I love the cool party ideas we get online, the motivational aspects, and the connection with new friends that I would never know otherwise. But, with so many negative people like internet trolls, and people that have blogs dedicated to tearing celebrities down or people in general it gets to be a bit much.
I really try to focus on what it offers that will make my life richer and fuller. I love blogging and have tried it many times over the last 10 years. I am proud to say that I have written in this one a lot more than I have in others, but not as much as I would like. But with this IG challenge, it makes me feel more accountable. The same with exercise. I have exercised a lot more because I am being “judged” or noticed by 1000 other people and I want to finish it completely because my friend invited me to do it.
I also want to challenge myself as I did at the beginning of the year to more prayer and devotional time. That is more important than of the other challenges, but I feel I need to dig in more with it because I know that getting closer to God can help me in every area of my life. If I want to live a life that is beyond my dreams, taking the time to reach out to my Heavenly Father is definitely a step that I need to take.I want to take the step to have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ, as well as receive my heart’s desires.
What challenges are you facing? Either self-imposed, or involuntary? Maybe if you let people know what you are going through, or connect with others with similar goals/issues/problems, then whatever you are facing will be easier to surpass or overcome.
Have a blessed night!
