“30 Days New”
Starting today, I am doing something new or something I used to do but haven’t done in ages every day for 30 days. I have been thinking about doing this for awhile, ever since I read about the UK’s nature program, “30 Days Wild”, which is pretty cool. I plan to photo document my progress here to keep me on track. (Please feel free to hold me accountable!)
Please note: I am allowing myself to double up on some days – counting my progress as two days when I do two new things on one day and perhaps none the next, but only on consecutive days. (I am a Gemini and a flexible gal, so this approach suits me, and after all, I am making up the rules!)
My goal is to gently nudge myself into an array of new experiences, to explore what changes, if any, they lead to and to have fun posting about it all.
Even more importantly, as a life coach and positive psychology public speaker I am always encouraging folks to try something new or to consider new ways of approaching their lives, and I never want to forget what change that feels like. So, I am taking my own advice. I need to keep on top of my game and being open to change and new experiences is a part of that. I never want my clients or my presentation participants to feel they are alone when trying something new.
Why start today, on a Wednesday at the end of June?
Well, I am putting myself out a bit extra today by taking a risk in the direction of my dreams, which I will tell you about more tomorrow, so today seemed like a good starting point.
I have also been dying to make homemade pasta, and today I did! (More photos tomorrow.)
Wish me luck, and please follow along with me or start your own “30 Days New”. If you do, I wish you luck and fun along the way. (Remember, there are no actual rules, so if you want to do something new once a week or everyday for two weeks or a year, go for it!)
