Happy 2017 to all you beautiful souls! As you would have been able to tell, I took a long break in 2016, and this comes down to a lot happening in my personal life and just needing some time to myself, to focus on myself and what was making me so unhappy. I took a lot of time to just work, draw and think and in this time I came up with the Journey Jar, a massive challenge for myself in 2017. The challenge jar, to put it in simple terms is a jar full of challenges Ive created to push myself out of my comfort zone and really do things I would not have done before. I was fed up with never pushing myself harder, never challenging myself and never doing the things that made me happy because I was always worried about what others would think, and this way, i can change that. The jar has 52 challenges that I will have to complete week to week. Some health related, some fitness related and some to help me find self love, self growth and to help with the relationships I have with the people in my life.
To some, It might sound silly, but to me, having a jar visually there with challenges to select, It will make it a lot easier for me to stick to the challenges. I decided to also create Vlogs and videos to track this progress and will be uploading them onto my youtube channel. I am perfectly content and happy for these videos to get 0 views, as long as I can track my progress and see the changes i make in myself, I’ll be happy.
This challenge is not going to be easy for me. Even putting myself in front of a camera is super nerve racking and going to be a challenge, but if it means I can become a better person and have little to no regrets with living my life in 2017 and onwards, then that will be a win for me.
Thank you for being patient with me as I took my long break and for always being so kind, supportive and loving towards my website and towards me, It does not go un noticed ♡
