Back in Jan, I decided to kick New Year's resolutions to the curb and instead just try to #3bravethings in 2015. I tried it in 2014 and it went really well. It was do-able and kept me thinking of ways to push myself beyond my comfort zone throughout the year. You can read my original post here Practical Guide for New Year's Resolutions and Goal Setting, #3bravethings
Even if you're just now reading this for the first time, it's not too late to join in! There's still over 90 days left in 2015. What does being brave mean to you?
- sign up for your first 5k? (Thanksgiving always has several)
- stop smoking?
- commit to a weekly "joy"? (sketch 3 times per week, walk 3 times per week, lock yourself in your bedroom and read for an hour 3 times per week)
- sign up for a retreat?
- host your first luncheon or party or book club?
- call up that relative or friend that you've been avoiding?
Whatever it is, only you will know. Go for it! You got this!
I like how 3 is such a manageable number too. If you set out to achieve "X" and it doesn't work out, go for something else. You've got time! For example, my first #3bravethings was to sign up for swimming lessons. My second goal was to try a sprint triathlon for the first time. I never did. I'll try again next spring, so it wasn't one of my #3bravethings for 2015. . . but that's okay.
I also wanted to have my website up and running by the end of the year, but we moved from VA to CO and the contract on our house in VA fell through. We now have two house payments, so I'm going to hold off until the VA house sells. So far, I've done two of my #3bravethings: 1-signed up for swimming lessons, 2-moved our family to CO. I'm not sure what #3 will be yet, but I'll think of something.
Please join me in trying something new and pushing our boundaries.
And do me a favor . . . please comment here or on my Facebook Page: Diana Dellos Artist and let me know what you are doing for your #3bravethings. Hearing from others helps to inspire and push ourselves. And don't forget to HT it! 🙂
Best of luck! We are going to do this!
