12-Month Challenge – Endings and Beginnings – Part II

146272578-boy-playing-with-building-blocks-gettyimagesLast week I wrote a post highlighting lessons I learned in 2012—the ending of one chapter always signifies the beginning of a new one so I’ve decided to take on a personal challenge every month and document it here. I know some of these are going to be extremely difficult and others will hopefully be fun. I also realize that most of my documentation will consist of me admitting to my failures and publicly humiliating myself, but hey, you only live once right?

Side note: if anyone wants to do this with me I’d love to connect to your blog and make it a group effort—holler!

For the purpose of this post/project, a challenge is anything which a) I’m not good at or b) I’ve never tried and c) I believe will be difficult and out of my comfort zone.

This is what I’ve come up with so far—some months have yet to be decided and I’m sure a few will change, but for now, this is what I’m working with:

January – Baking 101

February – Knitting 101

March – TBD

April – Vipassana (10 day silent meditation)

May – TBD

June – Travel somewhere alone

July – TBD

August – Cut out artificial sugar

September – Wake up at 6 AM & run Mon-Fri

October – Create a photography book (this could be a year-long project)

November – Run a half marathon

December – TBD


Let the baking begin…
