Challenges :: Daily and Monthly

I want to share a couple challenges with y’all that I will be participating in this year. I’ll be posting about these throughout the year on social media as well as the blog. [i took a really long break from blogging and am hoping this will help me get back into the groove of it]

For the month of January I’ll be participating in The Minimalism Game. My neighbor shared this first challenge with me and I’m actually kind of excited about it!   See below for a brief description.

The minimalism game is a challenge that asks you to throw out an increasing number of things for a month. So, on the first day of the month, you get rid of one item. On the second day, you toss two more. On the third, another three – and so on. In a month with 30 days, you will end up getting rid of 465 things from your home!

Just when I think, I don’t have that much stuff, I look around and see a room full of crap! I’m thinking it will be easy to begin with and then it will get harder to find stuff  to get rid of later in the month. For me anyway. I like to keep stuff. 

Next up is Project 365 :: A picture a day throughout the year. I really want to complete this challenge this year. I have started so many times and always end up not finishing. In 2018 I want to capture life and capture joy with my camera. I also want to be in front of the camera more {gasp} and not just behind it.

Have you heard of the 1 second every day app? If not go check it out here
This is another challenge I really want to complete because how fun will it be at the end of the year to look back over your video. 

I set a goal to read 40 books this year. I have found several challenges but have not decided which one to go with yet. 

What challenges will you be joining in on this year?
