Today I begin the 31 day challenge of writing about the same topic. Wanting to do this for several years, I finally gave myself a much needed kick in the pants. Most years, I have used the excuse of being busy with homeschooling. Now that I am not, I have no valid reason. I have a teensy bit of commitment fear, ehem, that means I am a bit lazy. But I see a lot of value in doing this, and I have found the perfect topic for me. It may not impress anyone, but that is not the point.
Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to 31 days of Discovery. Discovery of what, you may ask. Actually, I am not sure…yet. I chose this because this is my year of rest, and my year of rediscovering who I am and what I like to do. After 19 years of homeschooling, with depression being my constant companion, I don’t know what I like anymore, and I have no idea really where to start. So, my hopes are that this will jumpstart me into the realm of new ideas and new discoveries about myself. I encourage you to try the same if you are feeling lost like you don’t know what the woman in the mirror likes to do anymore. I am basing my idea on a book I read back in the spring called I Dare Me by Lu Ann Cahn. Ms. Cahn found herself in a rut and wanted a way to recharge her life. She had become bored with life and felt like a boring person. To get herself out of this slump, she tried one new thing each day for a year. I am not quite that ambitious so I am trying to do something new every day for 31 days in October and blog my thoughts and feelings about it along with sharing a picture from that activity. Some of these things I have done before (but it has been a long time) and others I have not. I know I will NOT be eating a scorpion like the author of the book did! Feel free to try some new things this month and leave any comments about them.
