A while ago I watched a TED video on Thirty Day Challenges (http://www.ted.com/talks/matt_cutts_try_something_new_for_30_days.html), and I have been doing them since. I, originally, cut off of sugar and meat as a thirty day challenge, though it has persisted far longer than a month. Last month I took two on at once: Never lie (If one slips out, correct it immediately) and never use sarcasm. It was a tough month for me, you may be surprised how much you tend to lie in a day )especially if you happen to be a high school student that has to explain why you don't have your homework done).
This month however I have started a new challenge for myself: Make everyday a story for tomorrow.
What that means is that by tomorrow of everyday to come I have to have a story (a worthwhile one, mind you) about the previous day. By the end of the month I should have a collection of thirty stories/adventures each different from the last. Today was a good day. I went for a hike alone in the woods, stumbled across a baby bobcat to whom I bowed upon meeting and wished him a good, healthy life, discovered a collection of four portraits hung on trees in the middle of no where (art displayed for nature and only those lucky enough to stumble across them), and I ran two miles down hill, which at one point happened to be through a group of (at the time of my passing) annoyed wild turkeys. (I apologize for that huge run-on sentence)
I was wondering if any of you do something similar to challenge yourselves?
