Last update I had completed three of the 21 day challenges. These are what I managed to tick off:
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.
Well, the one thing of the three that has survived a month without me keeping track of it is the 3 positive things I like about my day each day. I still have to keep working on the others when I can remember but on the upside, they helped improve the positive slant on life. I might have to return to the challenges that have fallen by the way side.
I still have to keep trying to restart the whole eat a piece of fruit a day. That will probably get easier with the diet now being more and more a conscious decision.
I am still working on no longer apologizing for myself, which is the one that I really wanted to achieve, as yet, unsuccessful. I suppose it will take more work than I had ever imagined. It’s tricky. I’m working on a lot though I suspect I barely tread water.
My guitar learning and practice is haphazard at best. Inconsistent and lazy at worst. I am working on some consistent progress, with any luck.
Nanowrimo project? Well… I haven’t thought much about it. I am not sure what I want to achieve for it or where it will go.
So the 24-7 goals update? Well as you know I completed goal number 1 now and goal number 15 (the habit swap… still more habits to work on). The 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 any more of them I promise. Anything is possible… Who knows what new habits I might want to make or break to add to the list… I wonder if I achieve another three habit swaps if it will count as another 24-7 goal completed?
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?

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.
