So day 1 of #30DaysChallenge: how did that go?
(Anyone who missed what this is all about – I refer you back a day for details!)
Slightly amusingly – typical me, can’t even stay on course for one day! – I already appear to have slightly challenged my own parameters. I never said that my #30DaysChallenge activities had to be small, but I definitely assumed they would be; my idea was to increase my conscious self-aware good stuff in little ways, and intermingle incremental bits of preparation with my otherwise everyday doings.
However, due to a few bits going on elsewhere in my life that are nothing to do with adoption (ok, ok, nothing in my life feels entirely unrelated to adoption currently, if only because I am so obsessed by it myself, but you know what I mean!) I did a little bit of thinking and took some proper self-care decisions.
The need for self-care, and to prioritise self-care, is something I’ve discussed with my Social Worker quite a bit throughout the assessment. So although not driven by my adoption planning it is particularly pleasing and hopefully also shows that my learning, self-analysis, and attempts to be open to change are working too. Important stuff therefore!
And of course, while such developments may not quite correlate with my intended focus on #SmallThingsRule type thinking, they definitely do meet the criteria for #30DaysInvestingInNow AND also manage to meet the criteria for #30DaysForMyFuture!
Ha! Almost by accident therefore, and by an unexpected route, I have nonetheless apparently reached my target: Day 1 of #30DaysChallenge – I have you sussed!
