So day 1 is in the books, and I am about to Lay down.
Day 1 of a personal challenge that I am taking for myself, so let me clue you in.
What am I doing?
No outside control on my psyche. No cannabis, no alcohol, no coffee, no sex/masturbation, simultaneously adding daily meditation. I will document this journey daily on my social media outlets. Blogging, vlogging, stories, snapchat.
Why am I doing?
To try. For the ride. For the experience. To prove to myself that I am in control of my habits. For my sanity, mental health. Reassurance. To look at pros and cons.
When am I doing this?
The entire month of November!
Where am I doing?
Everywhere, anywhere. I want to encourage myself to get out of my box. The box that I have labeled myself, and voluntarily hopped right into.
What do I hope to accomplish?
A new perspective. A new respect for myself. An increased pride when I look in the mirror. I hope to inspire others. I hope to inspire people to push through challenges. I hope to inspire people to the point of them taking control of that moment, and changing their lives forever. We can help. NOW. We don’t need to wait for the fame and fortune. We don’t need someone else to participate. WE need to participate, not simply observe, our OWN lives.
With enough support and interest, I can begin a group for us all. A safe space so to speak. You can share your trials and tribulations, and get love support back from all of us.
At the end of day 1, I feel great. I feel clear minded. I feel productive. I have had a few times today that I felt a small urge to indulge, but I truly cannot give up, especially on the first day!
I have already noticed that a large portion of urge comes from sheer boredom. So how much can I accomplish, if I simply stick to this plan, and every time boredom strikes, do something productive.
Day 1 down, 29 to go. 🙂
Peace and Love
