8 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge

ecca60_bd548215404e4af4a3ea1d1370be5ca2.jpgI might be a bit over optimistic thinking I can fully commit to 8 weeks of this challenge. BUT I AM GOING TO TRY! 🙂 I think these questions are really great to not only get me into blogging more.. but really focusing on one of my goals which is to be a more positve, happy person. I would LOVE for you to join in on this yourselves, or even join in once in awhile in the comments. Each week I will answer a different question/prompt.

Week 1: Why start this challenge?

Week 2: Your spouse/significant other

Week 3: Someone who inspires you

Week 4: Your home

Week 5: Your heritage

Week 6: Music you love

Week 7: Something you created

Week 8: Did this challenge change you?

 

Week 1: Why start this challenge? 

As I kind of “restart” this blog I wanted to start with a more positive mind. This has been a goal of mine for a LONG time. I see myself making some progress.. but it’s still so easy to get caught up in the “bad” things. SO I thought this would be a fun way to not only get into writing on here more, but force myself to focus on the GOOD. 

Lets talk wedding planning for example. For the past 6 months wedding planning has been in full swing. DIY’s, lists upon lists, timelines, food tastings, venue meetings… the list goes on. It’s been so much fun, but I also find myself feeling like it’s a chore sometimes which is sad.. because this should be the HAPPIEST times of my life. I ran across a quote that changed my perspective.

“People will not remember Pinterest crafts, or your bouquet of flowers.  They will remember the sparkle in your eyes, the smiles shared, and the way you glow with excitement.  There is no possible way to please everyone, accommodate everyone’s needs, nor ensure perfection.  What you can control is to truly enjoy the process, let those little things go, and enjoy those little moments licking envelopes with your fiance.”

I’m so lucky my fiance is so loving and understanding through the process. He is constantly telling me everything will work out and to remember that this day is about our love.. not the minor details. With that being said I’m going to start sharing some of the fun decor, and DIY’s I’ve done so far. I’ve found a new love for making chalkboard signs and I’m excited to share! 🙂 Stay tuned!

One thought on “8 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge

  1. I love this challenge! I will definitely join in here and there! That quote/reminder couldn’t me more true! I remember being so worried about the small details, now looking back I don’t even remember the food, decor, favors etc. I remember being with my husband, family, friends and having the best time of my life!! ❤
