31 Day Reset: Day 7 – Reflecting

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!

There wasn’t a new exercise today, just the chance to reflect on what I’ve learned so far and to read what other participants have contributed.

The most interesting thing I’ve leaned about myself is how important it is to me to genuinely connect with others, continuing to shape my conviction so that I can proudly act with my beliefs in mind. I previously thought myself to be more of an individual who likes her private time but I think I feed off of others’ energy more than I realized.

Day 6, creating the personal mission statement, was definitely the day I struggled with the most. I found it challenging to not have structure or a guideline on how to write the statement, so I found myself trying to organize my thoughts and prioritize, which was difficult. It felt very free form, which can be hard for me.

I got the opportunity to read the thoughts of some of my peers and I found it to be very interesting and inspirational. They have some great attitudes and I hope to have the same courage as I continue through my journey.
