With great joy and love in my heart I have decided to cancel my Year of Challenges. The reason is simple. I feel I got my lesson from what I was going for and the monthly challenges didn’t feel as compelling as I thought it would be.
Not that doing a challenge a month is a bad thing. I enjoyed doing the challenges, even though I fell off the wagon a little in March and February.
The main lesson is the reminder that the joy is the journey. It is not the completion of challenges that brings joy. The joy is from what I learn from the challenge. I believe that I will gain more this year by focusing more on “The Joy is in the Journey,” rather than going from challenge to challenge.
When you create goals for yourself it is a good idea not to get caught up in the goal. You want to figure out why you want to reach that goal and see if that goal still serves you after a while. I noticed that the year of challenges wasn’t serving me like I thought it would. I am still going to focus more on certain aspects of my life each month.
April is going to be focusing more on business, getting into blogging, tweeting and writing of my book.
Ultimate Blog Challenge has started again, and why not do my best to hit over 20 blogs this month. I have another guest blog tomorrow. Fun!
