So it’s been about a week since I finished the Reset challenge and I just wanted to do a recap on all I did and learned. But first let me shout out my fellow reset challenge members. Thanks @NerdyChique for telling me about this, Kovie parker, Valerie and Tobi also joined and it was nice to have your support through the challenge. Go Ladies!!
I started the challenge very excited, I ended up using my regular journal for the entries and not the blue prayer book as I had planned. I also added Seal’s “Love’s Divine” to my theme songs!
I went back to the first “real” post “Day 3– the “love letter to my future self”. It made me smile so much to read it, out of all the things I set out to accomplish, I have done or I’m on my way to completing most of them. It’s funny how I wasn’t consciously trying to do them because of the challenge… I guess when you bring something to your awareness and what it means to you, the universe aligns with your plans as “M” says :). I inquired about the sewing class, I pushed past my weight stall, I’ve been making more use of my creative energy through different means e.g. lately I’ve been teaching myself how to use Photoshop, it’s been a lot of information but it’s fun, I made the above graphic in Photoshop nothing fancy just used it to practice text tools. So yeah I’m happy with all my accomplishments big and small :).
Some of my favorite posts were “Day 6 – personal mission statement ” I need to print and display that somewhere in my room. I also looooved “Day 12 – Ideal life narrative” It made me giddy with excitement. I don’t need to tell anyone how much fun I had doing “Day 17- 100 things that make you happy” all you have to do is see how long my list was. I’m happy that my list consists of simple little things, I’m happy that most of my list doesn’t require a lot of money.
I didn’t enjoy the difficult posts, Day 22 just plain annoyed me and then I started getting bored. It’s important to push harder when the going gets tough. I did but bleh. Day 28 I still haven’t done. Sigh. Day 30 I did with lots of enthusiasm, I was happy the challenge was coming to an end!
Overall I still encourage anyone who is considering it to take it. I know that I unlocked several things this past month and this is only the beginning. my plan is to re-evaluate in about 3 months and see where I am. Developing and becoming the best version of you is a life-long journey, one you should be comfortable with, enjoy and take seriously
