Life Aims continued

Rhonna´s quotes really hit home for me! This challenge is about change, about learning to appreciate what I have, about not wasting time and money on things that don´t give me happiness, about becoming a better, more focused person. Answering the Life Aims questions and focusing on the changes I want to make during the 21 Day Challenge is really changing me...I am having to face many truths that I´ve been putting off, I am slowly coming face to face with myself. I can see my talent, my uniqueness, my positive self...but now it´s time to look at the side of me that drags me down, that keeps me small, my "bad angel"- that little criticising voice that reminds me of all the things that can go wrong. Here is the next set of questions:

What have you not been successful in in the past?
What were you only partly successful in doing?
Where did you fail?
Which weaknesses and deficits can you recognise which played a part in not coming through?

I know it´s going to be really hard to answer these questions without regretting, without wishing to turn the clock back, without finding reasons not to like myself because of past failures. Check back soon for answers.

If you have just found my blog, you may want to start at the beginning with the Life Aims questions so here are the links. Week 1, week 2, week 3. It´s a 10 week challenge and I am really enjoying getting to know myself finally in the year of my 40th Birthday!

YOu have no idea how much it meant to me at this time. I miss blogging all around so much and will be back as soon as possible.
