Breathe out the bad.

This week has been an insanely crazy week. One that has challenged my faith and self confidence. I am trying to keep in mind that when we are gifted with an obstacle in life it can play one of two roles.

1. We can CHOOSE to have it influence us for good by leaning into the hard things and pressing through them and learning every possible morsel of awesomeness that our Heavenly Father has in store for us. (Easier said then done. Ha! Don’t I know it!)

2. We can also CHOOSE to let fear and doubt shield us from what might be the opportunity we’ve been waiting for.

You choose.

I am choosing to breathe in the good.

Your mother’s type of 30 Day Challenge ; )

Okay so this isn’t your normal 30 day challenge. I’m not asking you to give up cookies, or even exercise for 30 days, although those are good things that I should be doing. I’m asking you to join with me in refining who we are to help us live a fuller life.

I was watching Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday and she had Elizabeth Gilbert on the show.  Gilbert encouraged us to ask these three questions  everyday and to record it so we can see our progress and  live our fullest life.

  1. What makes you really, really, really happy? (today,yesterday, tomorrow whatever comes)
  2. What was your happiest moment today? (I answer this at the end of the day)
  3. Refine your personal mantra.*

*This requires that you be 100% honest with yourself. Your personal mantra is what you are always telling yourself, NOT what you want to tell yourself. So if your always looking in the mirror and saying you need to lose some weight or change your hair, that is part of your mantra! If you’re okay with that mantra then I suppose your fine, but if you don’t like that, change it. I did this and it was eye opening! I’m guilty of thinking negatively of myself and am working on changing that!

So here’s the challenge, answer these questions EVERYDAY for 30 days, and write it down in a journal.

Then lets see what happens! Please share what you discover!
