Well… So far, so good.
Last update I was working on a few of the 21 day challenges at once. I will officially tick them as complete after three rounds of 21 days just to make sure it sticks. I am hoping this will keep me on track.
So have I finally completed any 21 day challenges to my satisfaction? YES!
Make- A daily list of 3 positive things that I like about my day.
Make- A daily list of 3 things that I like about myself, physical, non-physical.
Make- A little notebook of positive aspects, a once a day entry of 10 things that are positive.
So I am still having to work on this one
Make- Eat at least one piece of fruit a day.
I keep trying to stop apologizing for myself. But it is very much, deeply ingrained and I suspect other things will have to change first. Starting with some self love and appreciation and probably a bit more confidence will help.
I haven’t done any Tarot in a while, I should probably also be practicing guitar more regularly and consistently.
My idea for nanowrimo has taken a back seat at the moment, I haven’t given it much thought at the moment. Like I said before goals 24 and 2 seem to be closely linked. Nanowrimo will be a totally new challenge.
I am making progress on a couple of the 24-7 goals. Actually… I can say I have completed goal number 1 now and goal number 15 (the habit swap… that doesn’t mean I will stop though I want to say it again that I completed it again and again). My current in progress goals are 3, 4, 10, 12, 17, 22 as well as the ones that take time and progress to achieve for the moment. I will let you know if I achieve more of them I promise. Anything is possible…
The 24-7 goals:
1- Write The Diary of Elliot Parker Part 2
2- Do NANOWRIMO
3- Write The Diary of Elliot Parker Part 3?
4- Write the first book of the big project
5- Finish spine tattoo
6- Finish magpie tattoo
7- Finish musical rib tattoo
8- Look for an agent/publisher for the “big” project
9- Learn to drive
10- Learn guitar
11- Finish knitting the cable knit jumper
12- Finish knitting the blankets
13- Improve views on here
14- See a west end show
15- Try and succeed at least three times on the 21 day habit swap
16- Win the lotto jackpot
17- Look for the positives more often
18- Meditate regularly
19- Keep making emotional progress
20- Keep hope and loose more doubt
21- Make posts for here in advanced, consider adding pictures, try to avoid leaving it to the last minute
22- Try to grow my hair long- aim for below the shoulder this year.
23- Become even more open-minded
24- Discover my own special brand of writers magic,
Break- Stop apologizing for myself so often. I do it a lot, it is something that really bothers me, mainly because I apologise for things that are completely not my fault and nothing to do with me. I am sick of apologizing for my own existence.
Make- Eat at least one piece of fruit a day. It is supposed to be healthy right?
Make- Write/plot at least an hour each day even on rest days. I have to start getting stricter on myself.
Make- Create and stick to a writing schedule. I have to start being more organised.
Break- Stop being hard on myself, speak kinder words to myself instead. That pretty much explains itself.
Make- A daily list of 3 positive things that I like about my day. Because sometimes it is easy to forget that there were brief sunshine moments. Make- A daily list of 3 things that I like about myself, physical, non-physical. Because, it can be hard to show yourself some love. Make- A little notebook of positive aspects, a once a day entry of 10 things that are positive. Literally a list of positive aspects about people, places, things; maybe one day I will post it on here.
That’s all I have for now, it might change or grow.
