I don’t know what happened, but this week has just felt difficult. Recently I read a mental-health-wellbeing checklist that you’re supposed to go through with yourself on a daily basis, it consisted of something like: “How are you feeling today? What do you feel uncomfortable about? What do you feel happy about? Remember that it is okay to feel uncomfortable.” I guess ‘uncomfortable’ is a good word for how I’ve been feeling. I’m not in a bad way by any means, but this week has just felt like a bit of a struggle. I’m running forwards towards a destination, though I’m not sure how it’s going to be when I arrive and I’m currently on a somewhat steeper climb than usual and feeling a little low on energy – that’s my attempt at summarising how I feel.
I know that the gradient will eventually level out and I’ll be greeted with a view of the area I’m headed to giving me all the energy I need, I’m sure of it.
Anyway, I’ve had an idea about the next season of blog posts. Perhaps it could be the metaphorical view I’m climbing for. Let’s just say it’s ambitious, which gets me excited. It also aids to combat some of the complaints I’ve been making recently on the blog about my time-wasting activities and constant need to ‘tick more goals’.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
Blog for 100 consecutive days, every day ticking a daily challenge and therefore completing 100 daily challenges.
Inspired by my list of 100 to-do’s, I plan to edit that exact list slightly so that each challenge is a goal achievable within a 24 hour time frame. I will use the blog as a platform to document me completing the challenge and therefore it will create my new series: 100 Daily Challenges.
I am excited and ready for it. It will tie in nicely to the charity challenge I recently signed up for: RED January. For those that don’t know RED stands for Run Every Day, and I have pledged to run 10 miles every day of January. That’s 310 miles across the whole month. I am trying to raise a pound for every mile so do me a favour and donate at the following link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/red-january-2019-b9e01141-70ac-43ba-b273-719a20bca139
All proceeds are going to MIND.
Right then. To-do list:
– Edit the 100 to-do’s list to create the 100 Daily Challenges list.
– Create a 100 Daily Challenges logo & theme (update the blog using this)
– Set a start date (I’m already thinking 30/11/18)
– Get going.
Wish me luck yo.
