WOW when I started this a year ago I had a list of challenges to do and hope that I would think of a few more along the way. Which I did and that is where loving kindness meditation came in.
This is my last monthly challenge and I’m sort of sad. I enjoyed my podcasts, snail mail, meditation, crafts and more. But first I’ll do a recap of last month’s challenge of three random acts of kindness.
I noticed that I do somethings automatically, like holding the door open for people. I did let people ahead of me in line and I made a point to stop and ask people if they needed help when they looked lost, confused or taking a picture. I find people don’t like to ask for help – even when they are taking a picture of their friend in a tourist place. So I just offer point-blank and it is usually accepted. I also told people they were important to me and special for no reason. This I have to say was an easy monthly challenge wise.
For my last challenge I want to be a bit selfish. Since it is the end of the year I want to set aside some time for brainstorming and writing down goals for 2018. I want to be realistic so I am picking three goals from my brainstorming session. Maybe invite a friend to help you brainstorm.
After I get my three goals I am going to break them down into manageable parts. I am (hoping) to treat each part as its own project. Basically take baby steps towards my goals. Make the goals realistic and break them down into parts where you can celebrate your successes along the way.
I would love to hear in the comment your goals for the new year or how you go about accomplishing them. I guess I want to hear your game plan!
Thank you for following me along on these challenges and if you are just stopping by for the first time the following list is what I have been doing this year.
You can always start now!
