1. What one thing did you do better today?
As of writing this, I will complete the first half of this #100DaysofBetterMe project!!
2. Has doing so made you or someone else feel better?
Oh, I’m calling on all my courage and gratitude to share a few thoughts I have at the moment. Something has started to change in me the day I decided to do this project. In general I started to try harder (sometimes even just trying was enough if it was a point at which I would beforehand give up), cross my comfort zone more often, dig deeper and rise higher. I started this project with a letter to myself, admitting I’ve had enough – enough of haunting thoughts of “what if’s” and “should haves”, teary mornings for no reason, being far too easily annoyed by little things, drawing me into a vicious cycle of not feeling comfortable with others or content with myself. Looking back halfway through the project, I can say much has changed. I still have bad days. I still get tired. I still sometimes lack motivation to be the best version of myself (it happened just yesterday). However a big shift has happened in the bigger picture. Today I feel lighter, more content, more present, more accepting. I more often think about things I am grateful for. I still have to remind myself to not over-stress. But feeling immense joy comes easier. Laughter happens more often. Kind, loving self-talk still doesn’t always come naturally but it never feels like light years away anymore. I spent more time in nature. I hugged more people. Just today I met two homeless people and we wholeheartedly wished all the best to each other. I can name things I would never have done have I not started this project. Things I will remember forever. And there is your support, feedback, comments, personal messages and stories you shared with me that I deeply cherish. I want to thank you all for following me along, for showing support, for opening up to and with me. It means so much.
3. Has it brought any new realisations?
Oh, the excitement I have for the next 50 days ahead of me! #100DaysofBetterMe, so far so so good, I am keeping my door wide open to more positive change.
