Week #1: Why Start This Challenge?
That is an excellent question.
As I was thinking about this challenge over the last few days, preparing to write this first post, I prayed. I’m a Christian, raised Methodist. I find that I’m filled with peace and calm whenever I pray, and I feel better when I finish.
In praying about this post and this challenge, I felt that this challenge will stretch me during this year. Up until a few minutes ago, I wasn’t sure what to write, or how to approach this.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m excited to be stretched, and literally challenged this year. I’m looking forward to doing something different.
I’ve done a few challenges recently, but I’ve noticed that all of them have been about media or other types of consumption. With this one, I’ll be looking into my heart and write about things that mean the world to me.
I’m thrilled to share this journey with all of you! I’m grateful that I have the ability to write these posts on my laptop, have the Internet to share them on WordPress and Facebook, and have so many amazing readers and supporters in my life.
I hope everyone is having a good week so far. It’s the first week of the New Year – I’m trying to make the most of it. Here’s to 2017!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
