As you may, or may not know, this year I have decided to challenge myself like never before! Twelve months, twelve challenges all designed to push me towards the “big finale” goal that I plan on completing by the end of 2016.
January’s challenge was to drink 36oz of water every day and I chose that as my first challenge of the year for a handful of reasons. One of which was to get off on the right foot with an easy first step.
This month, however, I am definitely not taking it easy on myself. In all honestly this challenge will probably be the hardest of them all.
You see, February is my birthday month and so I decided to make this month’s challenge ALL ABOUT ME! Every day this month I will be taking a few minutes out of my day to record (on video) something I like about myself. For me this will be extremely difficult. Why?
- I don’t like seeing myself in videos or pictures.
- I don’t like the sound of my voice.
- It’s a leap year so that’s 29 things I like about myself. For someone with minor self esteem issues that’s a lot!
Even though this challenge will certainly make me uncomfortable it will also be good for me to face my insecurities, and that’s the whole point. #ChallengeMyself2016 is all about making myself the me that I need to be to complete my goals. That means that there is no room for doubt and insecurities!
It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
