You have may have noticed that I love a self imposed challenge. There was the 40 day challenge, the web series challenge, the on line dating challenge, the write everyday for a month challenge, write once a month challenge, the work out until I die challenge, etc. Most of them documented or at least talked about on this blog.
The lastest one, the selfie challenge, has ended. I failed. The challenge/random activity sounded like a fun thing to do but...it wasn't.
One night, at 10:53PM, when I went to take the selfie I had to pause and ask myself, "what am I doing?" My answer wasn't good enough - it didn't even make sense, I didn't feel like the challenge would change my life or enhance the life of another in any way and it was a great example of self absorption. I became too aware of myself in a questionable way, I became too aware of the way I was wasting time and to top it all off I didn't know what I was documenting. I became annoyed with the whole thing. I wasn't having fun with it like I assumed I would. When I realized fun wasn't even a factor in what I was doing I realized I was operating without purpose and that is foolish.
All arrows pointed to end it, so I did. I let the foolishness go.
My instagram addiction is still in tact though. I have no problem posting random photos and selfies there... selfie challenge done but instagram is not!
Umm... I should let you know that I have another challenge up my sleeve. OF COURSE I DO!!! It's actually a challenge I attempted before and didn't complete/achieve, it's time to go after it again, it's definitely worth documenting, it will change my life and hopefully encourage others. I'll share what I am up to in the new year. Until then stay tuned, stay warm and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
