Two weeks ago, I posted about the 3 in 30 challenge here. My three goals were fairly simple: read my Bible daily, write in my gifts journal daily, and give Abby a bath daily. Just three things that I need to work on doing…daily.
These past two weeks have been hit-and-miss when it comes to my goals. I’ve given Abby a bath most days (the only times when I haven’t have been when we got home really late or when my sister was visiting). But I’ve written in my gifts journal fewer times than I’ve given Abby a bath. And I’ve read my Bible even fewer times than that.
It’s still a work in progress. I’m definitely not there yet, but at least I’m getting there. And giving Abby a bath has become more second-nature now that I’ve been doing it (fairly) regularly! I actually gave her a bath earlier than usual tonight because I figured it wouldn’t hurt. It did throw her off a bit though because we use the bath time to relax before bed, so maybe it wasn’t the best idea.
And the best part about this challenge? It’s inspired me to start changing other things, too. For example, I’ve been working on waking up at a decent hour for the past few days. It does require a cup of coffee, but it’s worth it. I’m actually getting things done around the house, too! It’s hard to believe that this challenge has unleashed so much motivation, but it’s really been good for me. Even if I don’t get everything on my list done.
What keeps you from doing the things that need done? Or are you someone who can’t sit still for very long and gets more things accomplished in a day that most get done in a week?
