Yesterday I asked myself "What am I really afraid of?"
I realized that I'm afraid of failing...of needing more than 33 items in the next 3 months. But just as quickly I realized that the only way I will fail is by not giving it a try. So what if I end up throwing a few extra items in? Is that failure? I don't think so. I love that Courtney states (more than once) that this is not a project in suffering.
I am still working on my actual 33 items. It might take me a couple days to really think it through and figure it out. I also need to figure out my rules and tailor this experiment to my life. I've taken the first steps....I've accepted the challenge, committed to doing my best and put away half of my wardrobe.
Another challenge I tackled this week was to stop drinking coffee. I love a warm cup of coffee in the morning as I read my Bible and enjoy some quiet time, but I don't love having my coffee pot cluttering up my counter. I also didn't love the caffeine dependence I had developed. I'm happy to report that my coffee maker has been put away all week, and I'm enjoying green tea each morning.
Are there any challenges in your life you are tackling?
