The End of the 6-Week “Better Me” Challenge.


       The other day it was the end of the 6-week challenge. I wish I could say that it was a successful and productive 6 weeks, but it was a stressful and overly emotional six weeks. I started this challenge towards the beginning of November. After a week, I was finally getting the hang of drinking a gallon of water a day. I was becoming more active and taking care of my skin. I was working on my projects and slowly but surely, I was doing most of the things I was planning on doing. Unfortunately, things took a different turn. I got off track and things went in another direction. I got a double dip of bad news less than two weeks apart. I lost two family members in the month of November. One was completely out of the blue, and one was a little expected, but a horrible blow. The pain was unbelievable, and I it’s been awhile since I cried that much every single day. I’m still in the process of healing, but in the month of November I was a complete emotional wreck. Every time we lose a family member life makes us remember what’s really important. I missed out a lot on family gatherings, especially when I was in my depression hole. I stopped coming out to family gatherings and realizing that I missed out on all that time haunts me. Always make time for family and hug them every chance you get. Let the words “I love you” be the last words that you say every time you walk away. I’m pretty much an affectionate person so I always make sure I hug everyone, but I want to make a habit to say I love you more.

       During the last week of my challenge I tried to get back to my list and end it on a decent note. I knew I would eventually have to try to attempt this challenge again. I accepted that I fail short during the six weeks and I’m okay with that. It’s been a horrible few weeks and I won’t bust my chops about not keeping up with my plan or to-do list. I plan to start another 6-week challenge, but I will wait to January 6th. It’s a Monday and I like to start things on Mondays. 😊 (Come back around January and join me if you want!) Even though I will try to reattempt this challenge in January, it doesn’t mean that I don’t have another challenge that I am planning on doing now. Yes, I’m doing a 2 WEEK CHALLENGE that starts today and ends on New Year’s Day. Once the clock strikes midnight the challenge will be over. I know what you’re thinking, a challenge during the holidays is a crazy idea. It’s when we’re at the busiest and feeling the most stress, but unfortunately this holiday is going to be different this year. My family is not really celebrating this year. We’re not really feeling the holiday spirit. This challenge might be perfect for me right now and a good distraction. Plus, it will be nice going into the New Year already in motion. I will be posting more about my 2 week challenge later today, and stay tuned for a reattempt of my 6 week challenge next month!
