21 Day Challenge

I decided to jump into the 21 Day Challenge. It's based on the idea that it takes 21 days to make/break a habit. For 21 days you establish or rid yourself of a habit, and you get to go through it with others and create an art journal as you go. If you're interested, I don't believe it's ever too late to join. You can choose any habit you'd like to work on. For me I saw a great opportunity to take part in something, create a habit that would have a positive impact on my life and start an art journal, which is Number 21 on my 101 List. Number 21 is now officially in progress.

My 21-Day Challenge: To ask for what I want

This may be asking for what I want from someone, from myself or from the Universe.

Day 1: One of my goals over the next year is to continue to lessen the amount of hours I spend at what I call my "day job" as I step more and more into my coaching and creative work. Recently I asked if I could lower my hours as of June 1, and my boss had requested I stay until July 15. I really hashed it out, and I was frankly a bit nervous about putting myself first and going in and saying, "Actually, I'm afraid I need to stick with the original date." But today I did it.

Congratulations on day one! You've set yourself a great challenge for the next 21 days. Asking for what we truly want is HUGE, HUGE, HUGE! Good luck and all the best on your upcoming exams too.

Congratulations! I know how hard it is but once you start asking - and being clear about what you want, it does become a habit. I think I´ll join you in the 21 day challenge!

Wow. I am happy to see you jump on board with the 21 day challenge. Your first day was is so difficult to walk that line between what we want and what we have to do. You are doing it, you are taking the leap of faith. Good for you...I am smiling for you!

Wow, I totally adore your journal and it's already so cool and artistic. I don't know how you do it.

You got me Jamie! I started the challenge and my first act of magick is making the journal itself and my realizations in doing so. I've published it in my Crafty Magick blog. Now I have something to write about!

Thank you so much for your inspiration, YET AGAIN! I hope everyone else participates too.
