The Journey Begins

I am going through Cheryl Richardson's Life Makeovers; 52 Practical & Inspiring Ways to Improve Your Life One Week at a Time.

It's actually best if you have a partner and/or team to share the experience of going through the book.  I put it out into the universe that I wanted and needed a partner and the universe provided, of course!  I have created a private and safe chat room for us to do our work/sharing.  If you would like to join us in the chat room please leave me a message/comment below and I will email you with the address and password.

Cheryl asks us for our first Take Action Challenge to get and start a journal. Our first journal entry is to list 25 things that we are proud of about ourselves from the past 12 months. Here is my first Take Action Challenge;

The Journey Begins
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. 
Lucille Ball

  • Learning how to blog, actually teaching myself how to blog.
  • Taking and completing 3 online workshops = building community.
  • Acing all the classes for work positioning me for greater earning power.
  • Continuing the arduous paying down of debt, 20K last year.
  • Preparing for college again.
  • Quitting and continuing not to smoke.
  • Taking all my vitamins almost everyday.
  • Seeing myself grow as an artist.
  • Finally realizing I don’t have to fix everything for everybody.
  • Standing up for myself.
  • Looking inward and listening.
  • Pursuing my interests in spite of others opinions.
  • Becoming more and more computer savvy.
  • Declining invitations that don’t really interest me.
  • Connecting with a life coach.
  • Making a commitment to myself regarding Extreme Self Care.
  • Continuing to eat more organic and local foods.
  • Getting more and more exercise.
  • Letting go of old belief systems.
  • Getting to know the real me.
  • Taking bold steps; like blogging for a partner or team to do the 52 weeks with me. = Putting myself out there!
  • Building community for myself.
  • Getting approved for work study for the Soulcollage Facilitator Training.
  • Doing more things alone.
  • Being satisfied with the path that I am on.

I’m working on listing more accomplishments and things about myself that I am proud of, hope you do too! Stay tuned.

Note: The book I have was published over 10 years ago so I am only including the resources that are web sites or books.
