Week 12: List All Your Best Qualities

  • Empathetic
  • Sympathetic
  • Nurturing
  • Determined
  • Funny-ish
  • Considerate
  • Minimalistic
  • Loving

I think society has made us feel shameful for “loving” certain parts of us. If you like the way you look you are conceded, if you like your personality, you are full of yourself but the reality is, an all-powerful God made you and you should appreciate certain attributes about ourselves. I think in a world full of put-downs and negativity we need to love ourselves but without boasting. It’s important to not make these attributes our everything because we don’t want to become conceded or full of ourselves but instead use these traits to benefit others around us. Use your humor to bring cheer to someone’s day or your nurturing trait to comfort someone in need. We were given these traits as gifts from God to use for good. It is so important to discover your gifts and utilize them! I challenge you to write down everything you love about yourself and tape it to your mirror as a constant reminder of all the good you bring to this world. – Lex.

Week 11: List All The Ways You Can Rejuvenate Your Space

  • Paint some canvas art!
  • DIY some mason jars
  • Buy a cheap new comforter for your bed
  • Replace any dingy curtains
  • Frame some photos
  • Buy a new throw blanket and pillows
  • New Centerpiece

This post is way beyond late and I know it is incredibly short but this was a rather difficult prompt because I don’t have my own space. Feel free to comment your favorite ways to rejuvenate your space.

Week 10: Things You Probably Should Ignore

  • Ignorance
  • Hate
  • Gossip
  • Arrogance
  • Lying
  • Negativity
  • Temptation
  • Greed
  • Other people’s possessions
  • People’s flaunting Facebook stuff

I think it is cleansing to write down all the negative things in your life and make an effort to rid these things so you are able to live a more positive, happier, Christ-centered life. Replace these things with better alternatives. Someone is being negative? Compliment them.  If someone is hateful, be nice. If someone is lying, be truthful. You have to turn the other cheek because those who live by the sword die by the sword. I challenge you to jot down all the nasty things in your life that you pay way more attention to then you should, and free yourself from it. – Lex

Week 9: List What You Treasure The Most

  • My relationship with God: This obviously is something I treasure seeing as, without it, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I wouldn’t be able to appreciate anything else I have. He is the sole reason I have things to treasure in the first place.
  • Time with Family: Family is something so important to me. We argue, fight, get annoyed with each other, and even give each other the silent treatment but when we get together and laugh it is like no other.They truly do make life better.
  • Nice Weather: There is nothing more “feel good” than the 70-degree weather in New England during March or 65 and Breezy during July. Weather fluctuates so much where I am from so when the beautiful weather makes an appearance I appreciate it so much more.
  • Summer Time: In New England summer typically lasts from Mid June – End of August. It’s our shortest season but my favorite one. I love toes in the sand, salty sea water, and sunshine hitting my skin. I wait all year for those two and a half months so I can enjoy all the wonderful things that summer brings ( like it being acceptable to eat ice cream all day every day).
  • Good movies: I live for movies. I love such an array of different genres. Being cuddled up with a big blanket, popcorn, and your favorite movie is something so comforting and safe. No matter where you are if you have those three things, you’ll feel comfortable.
  • Quality dates with my boyfriend: William and I are on strict budgets for being college students so whenever we go on our once-a-month dates I appreciate them so much more. So far we’ve gone mini golfing, seen a movie, and have gotten breakfast at this fabulous Local Diner. We get to enjoy each other while exploring new places which is such a wonderful thing to do as a couple.
  • Me time: I grew up the oldest of four kids, shared a room, worked alongside my parents since I was 15, share a dorm in college, and was always a very busy teen. Whenever I can just get a simple 10-15 mins to myself, I am so grateful. You need Me Time to survive this crazy world. We need that to get through so I enjoy that time with just myself.
