Have you ever found yourself so overwhelmed with life that you can barely breathe, let alone move forward and get anything done? And yet, it is in the getting things done, that momentum is created, positive forward motion, that allows us to breathe and feel good. When I go into overwhelm mode, my brain feels like a 50 car train wreck has occurred. Like the train came to a screeching halt and all the cars of the train are just stacked up on top of one another. Where to even begin to untangle that mess. Well, I have recently come across something that is helping me in tremendous ways and I would like to share it with you. It is not a new concept. But I had never really fulfilled one before. So I didn’t realize the full effect that something so simple can have on one’s life.
The concept I am speaking of is Challenges. There are many different ideas and plans for Challenges. And they have the ability to change your life. Because gaining good momentum in any one area of your life, will spill on over onto other areas. The good feely gets going, the energies get going, the momentum gets going. Before you know it, there is no end to the possibilities of what we could accomplish. By embarking on a Challenge. Taking small steps each and every day towards a specific goal. Every little bit, no matter how insignificant it may seem at the moment, adds up and builds and builds.
I invite you to make a list of 3 to 5 things that have been needing to get taken care of in your life. Things that you know would make you feel free and good to have accomplished. Cleaning out the garage. Cleaning out a closet. Losing weight. Writing a book. Starting a blog. Changing jobs. Opening a business. These are just a few ideas in a world of things to choose from. If the word Challenge, in itself, causes you to go into overwhelm, start with a small one. I have attached links here in order to make it even easier to begin.
I believe and hope that you will find as much in the Challenge as I have!! Happy Challenging yall!! I would love to hear about your successes below!!
