31 Day Reset, Musings

31 day reset- Day 1

May 17, 2012
So I’m doing this personal growth challenge that a certain lovely lady proposed to me, @Nerdychique has been a blessing to me in so many ways and I’m thankful for her. I’ve been on this personal growth kick since April and I’ve been taking personality tests, asking myself some important questions etc. I even realized that for the first time in my life I can comfortably say I love all of me and I’m am comfortable and secure in the person I am. It’s been a while in the works and not an easy journey.

It’s time to take this journey a couple of steps further and this couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time. The 31 day reset is a month of daily exercises designed to motivate your personal growth in terms of happiness, entrepreneurial spirit, pursuing your passion and much more. So I’m excited. Always looking for ways to become a better version of me.

I invite you to join me and some other ladies here. I might post everyday depending on how I feel about each exercise, If you do decide to do it please let me know! and use the tag #31dayreset if you wish 🙂

Day 1
Choose your Reset Notebook

Sorry, Shitty Webcam photo

I chose this book because 1) I submitted my for real journal to my psych class, I might actually end up using that one, still undecided.

But I chose this book cos my mom hand wrote a bunch of prayers and daily devotionals for me when I was coming here, It was such notice but she filled it almost halfway. I think it’s the sweetest thing ever. Isn’t her handwriting pretty?
Choose your personal Mantra
“Live in truth, not in Fear. Love is you”
I chose this as my mantra because well the first part has always been my mantra, actually planned to tattoo it on the insides of my wrists last summer and I still might. It means A LOT to me. The second part is to remind myself to be an example of Love in all I do.
Choose a theme Song
Beautiful flower – India Arie. I simply like the message. Beautiful, brilliant, resilient, powerful. All that I am and want to be 🙂
Unwritten – Natasha Bedingfield. Listen to it. you’ll understand 🙂 siiiigh. 
So that’s it. 
Will you be joining in?

    Hi, this is my first time leaving a comment here although I bookmarked this page a while ago and I’ve read almost every post (now this sounds weird x_x lol). Anyway, I started my jouney on the 31day reset a few days agao and it’s been awesome. I love your journal, blue’s my fav color. Your theme song is one of my fav songs as well. And I like the second part of your mantra “Love is you”… I’m adding that to my list of fav quotes. Bless!!!
