I’m participating in the 31 Days to Reset Your Life program at Happy Black Woman. The program is designed to help you evaluate your goals and priorities and think of them in the context of your life today and how you might be able to refocus on what’s important. Read on to learn about my experience with the challenge!
Today’s activity was to find an accountability partner. This person needs to be available for consistent updates on my progress toward my goals and will ask the difficult questions I don’t want to ask myself. It needs to be someone who will hold me responsible to make progress toward the life I envision and will stand firm when I try to make excuses.
I decided to ask my boyfriend to be my accountability partner. I know Rosetta suggested not using anyone too close to you – and of course he is – but when I sat down and thought about the person I’m ultimately accountable to… who sees every move I make, including when I’m on Facebook instead of doing my 31 Day Reset activity… he’s that person. I read him the description and asked if he’ll officially do the job, and he accepted.
Now, what exactly he’ll be holding me accountable to is the question I hope will be answered in the next few weeks!
