If there is one thing I learned in last month, it is the importance of sharing your goals and being held accountable for them. For Month 3 Brave + Broken, I will be doing just that!
If you are new to my blog. The Brave + Broken Lifestyle Challenge is a challenge I designed a couple of months after I got out of my broken marriage.
The idea is to rediscover yourself after being broken and to discover yourself in the simplest form – as a human being. It is so easy to define ourselves in terms of our relationships or occupation. Yes, I remain a mother, but to be a really great mother, I need to know the person I am first.
The challenge also looks at the crutches or coping mechanisms I have been relying on, through this rough patch and bring about a healthy balance again.
If you want to know more about the challenge. Start by reading about the background and birth of the challenge.
Month 3 Brave + Broken
(1.) The Nurture Goal. Last month’s goal was to practice portion control at night. This month, I am taking it all the way, instead of just practising portion control, I want to eat only when I am hungry. Which at the moment isn’t a crisis because I constantly feel hungry! Thankfully, being conscious about why I am eating will hopefully lead to being mindful!
(2.) Comfort Zone Goal. I used to have very daring with my wardrobe. I lost a bit of that along the way. Dressing up like Frida Kahlo, help quite a bit, along with realising, it is okay for me to wear shorts to the dam. So this month, I am kicking it up a notch.
(3.) Productive or Creative Goal. This month, I am opting for creative rather than productive. Yes, I am a working mom, helping to plan an A21 Walk – so productivity will always be a priority. But this month I really want to draw and use watercolour more.
(4.) The New Habit Goal. Seeing as meditating early in the morning clearly didn’t work, I am going to put some effort into reading my Bible daily and documenting it in my bullet journal.
An Added Challenge…
As an added challenge, I really want to feature another real-life example of living a brave + broken life. Last month, I featured Frida Kahlo. If you can think of another real-life example – let me know in the comment below?
These are my goals for the month. What are yours?
