Update on the 21 Day Challenge


Happy Saturday, everyone! I haven't posted about the challenge in a few days, so I thought I would give you an update! I thought you may be thinking I had abandoned it, absolutely not!

Day 7
Help a stranger.

I had class last weekend. The class was 'group counseling,' so the students operated as a group that was being counseled. There were many emotions that came out during the class. I have known many of the students since last semester, but I don't know them well. They aren't strangers, but more of acquaintances. I hope that my words in class helped someone to feel better about a situation they were dealing with. I felt uplifted after the class.

Day 8
Do something fun!
I like to think that I do fun things everyday! But on day eight I put out my Easter decorations! I was so sick of the snow and the gloom, I couldn't wait any longer! I will post more pictures soon, but in the meantime here is my mantle :)


Day 9
Scratch something off your to-do list.


I did some homework that I had been putting off, and I still have more to do! I also did laundry which had been put off for far too long!

Day 10
Work on your patience.
I really need to be working on this everyday. I have zero patience! If there is something to be done I want it done immediately. I hate putting responsibility in the hands of others, because I have no patience and I like to operate on my own schedule. This challenge was definitely a test.

Day 11
No computer in the morning hours.

If you were at work you were allowed to be on the computer. Can I just say that I failed miserably at this!

Day 12
Do-over day. Any challenge you weren't successful at, today is your day to do it over.
Well, let me just say that I didn't redo my 'no computer' failure. I think I may have an addiction.

Day 13
Unwind and Relax

I definitely did this yesterday! I didn't have to work so I just chilled all day long, it was great! 

Day 14: Today
Do something that you wouldn't normally do alone.
I haven't decided what I'm going to do today....I will update you tomorrow on what happened!

Shew, ok now we're up to date on the challenge! I apologize for slacking on the updates :) It's not too late to join in either! Just go link up over at Summer's!

Come back later for the first round of answers in the Q&A session!

Have a beautiful day, everyone!

Your mantle is adorable! I wish I decorated for more's only Christmas here!

Patience is so hard...I think it is something that everyone has to work on and it takes time to gain it!

Can't wait to see your Q&A later today! Have a great weekend!

I have never been to the movies by myself. My husband goes all the time and loves it. I need to put that on my list.
