The From Busy to Happy Challenge is fantastic...and I recommend it. It’s something I do want to share when it's over, but I’m way too new at this to do it now. And here’s how it started going down:
Day 1: Successfully blogged about Day 1 (Revamp your morning schedule). Woo! I’m a blogger! This is awesome.
Day 2: Did my coursework for the Day 2 challenge (Staying Present)…then didn’t get around to blogging about it—because I wanted it to be the thoughtful and I had a birthday party to attend. Solution: I make my own schedule now. I'll do it in the morning!
Day 3: Oh crap! I didn’t blog about Day 2…now I have to blog about Day 2 and Day 3? And I have a cold? I know…I’ll blog about Day 2 later and sleep off this cold. Then I’ll do the Day 3 coursework tomorrow. I’ll just stay a day behind. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Day 4: Crikey! Now it’s Day 4 and I didn’t blog about Day 2 -- because I really wanted to blog about the art I’m working on. But I didn’t do that either because I promised to blog about Day 2. Day 2! Day 2! Blog about Day 2! Aaaand now I haven’t done the Day 3 coursework. I’ll wait and do it all this weekend! Boom.
Day 5: Holy smokes! It's the weekend. How am I going to catch up and blog about Days 2-5 now? And blow my nose and hack up a lung? *Ding* Is that the Day 6 challenge in my inbox?? ::crickets::
So there ya go. Week one a basic fail…but successful in the lessons learned. I hope some of the new bloggers in my circle will relate! It's a challenging start...and when we’re all a huge success we’ll look back and laugh at this, right? If I don’t fail some while building this empire, how legit will I be when it's time to give back? Yes, I said empire. And yes, it made me feel as nauseous as it did you. Sorry.
On that note, tomorrow is a brand new week! :fizzle, fizzle::
