Challenge: I will blog about my breakup. Living my life as a blogger means I'm constantly putting myself out there for scrutiny. Since my breakup I've felt creatively paralyzed. Like I've been keeping a dirty secret and haven't felt inspired to say much at all because of it. I'm hoping coming clean to my readers will give me the freedom and bravery to get back to writing.
Challenge: I will spend an entire Saturday/Saturday night without my phone. My phone is my lifeline, security blanket and best friend. My friends 'joke' that when I'm out and my phone dies it means I'm either going to find a charger or will go home. I don't want to be that girl. I am always on it and rarely present - constantly trying to capture the moment, and thus, missing the freaking moment. What does this mean? No text, no snapchat, no FaceTime, no UBER rides. I'll have to figure it all out the old fashioned way.
Challenge: I will go to church and do it alone. Other than attending mass for a wedding, I haven't been to mass in years. I'm afraid of what the quiet reflective space will do to me. It's time to face my fear and see what happens. Night mass at Holy Rosary, here I come.
