Last night I completed Challenge 74 and Challenge 80. 4 times I have felt inspired to succeed and also 100 things I am grateful for.
The 4 things that inspired me to succeed were interestingly people actually telling me I was already doing something well rather than an inspirational pep-talk approach. For me when someone tells me I am already succeeding at something it makes me want to do an even better job to prove them right or exceed their expectation. It gives me a benchmark to try to beat. I don’t think ‘I think you can do better’ is a motivator for me. It sounds like disappointment and makes me less likely to try….maybe that’s just me but it was interesting to think about.
The 100 things I was grateful for was easy. I only allowed individual family members to be named everyone else was under the friend category otherwise I never would have got to have anything other than people in my 100. Lots of what this year has been about also featured like the challenges and what I have achieved in them.
Today I have a beautiful piece of fabric on my mind that I am really keen to make into a jacket/coat BUT it is the kind of fabric that could look awful in the wrong style. I need to proceed with caution… I don’t know if sewing caution is a strength for me…
