I used to post my personal and business goals at the beginning of every month. They were my little to-do lists that had more to do with accomplishing tasks then anything else. I did it mainly for accountability. The idea that I would have to answer to my lovely blog readers if I didn’t accomplish a certain task I’d laid out.
That served me well for a while. But, it ended up not feeling quite right for my blog.
At the beginning of this month, I wrote myself a personal list. Not a task list as much as a list intended to stretch me.
I’m in a really large season of transition right now. I wanted to make sure that I was taking steps to become a more courageous person, a more open and liberated person, and someone who constantly chases after the things that draw her.
So, I thought that may be a little more fitting to what I want this blog to be about. I also thought it would be a great opportunity for me to challenge myself to a monthly self-portrait. I’ve been resistant to that for several reasons lately. But, there’s something about self-portraiture that helps you to see yourself as you are.
I haven’t taken one yet this month, but, I’ve used an older one from when I was doing regular self-portrait projects.
