(Mental Health Monday is on a short hiatus, while I work through my divorce.)
Beginning today, I am starting the 100 Day Goal challenge. I think it’s ultimately supposed to be about building a business, but I’m using this challenge to reinvent myself. I’ve been doing a lot of googling and Pinteresting in the past few days, and learned that reinventing yourself is basically starting over.
A divorce means starting over, in almost everything. So I figured now would be a good a time as any. I’m still making lists and working out details. I know it won’t be a quick process (which is why I have 100 days to get going). I know that I will fail but I will pick myself back up and keep going. I have the motivation to create a better, happier, more fulfilling life for us (me and the kids) and I’m not content anymore to just sit at home and binge Parks and Rec while eating cheetos (although that might happen some days, and I know that’s ok).
Basically, I need to come up with a new person – the new me. Who I want to be, what I want to look like (weight, hair, clothes), what I want to do with my life. Goals, passions, how I want to act. Right now, I’d like the new me to be completely different than the me right now.
It’s going to be hard work. Some days, I will feel like quitting. But I need to start living – not just surviving.
Join in if you want to! (I’ll also be following Day Designer’s 30 Day Habit Challenge, which will fit nicely with the 100 Day Goal.) I’ll be posting progress maybe weekly, maybe a few times a week, depending on how much progress is being made.
It’s my birthday month (I’ll be 31 on the 25th, which also would have been my 10th wedding anniversary) so I’m determined to make these next weeks count! Happy May!
