2 weeks in
So we are officially 2 weeks into our February challenges and for me that is exactly what it has been. A challenge. Similar to what I said last week I have been struggling with these challenges. For me the hardest thing has been not being able to fully embrace these challenges.
Trying to make these changes in my life has taken me out of my comfort zone because its something new and something I’m not used to. These first two weeks I have been extremely busy and stressed with work and school, and without my comfort zone to fall back on, it has added to the stress. This has made it difficult for me to fully embrace the challenges which is hard because it makes me feel like I am not succeeding. I am hoping that the next few weeks things start to slow down so I can really put forth a stronger in effort in making a change.
Even though I have been struggling a little bit, I have been able to take a little time to live out my passions, which so far I have found is spending time with people I love and care about. My mom came and visited me on Friday and it was great to see her and we had an awesome day together. I have taken time to catch up with and spend time with people I haven’t seen in a while. I have had some pretty cool shoots lately and we have produced some pretty cool shows and projects. I have also been able to play basketball which I am very passionate about, but I have found a few things I’m not passionate about…Intramural Refs is one of those things.
Looking ahead I am excited for us to begin our outreach in an effort to make an impact in the community. But until then, I am glad I still have some time to concentrate on myself and these challenges to try make changes in my life. Its been great to see that other people have started to challenge themselves and I know we all hope that more people start to do the same and share their experiences with everyone.
