21 Days to A New You

I found a new blog that I really have enjoyed reading.  It is Julie at and she blogged today about 21 days of change.  You can click on her button to go to her blog.

Her 21 day challenge came from Summer another new blog I am following. 

Le Musings of Moi

She is on day three if you go to her blog.  You can click under her title bar on the sub heading 21 days of change.  I am starting today February 22 to committ to this. 
Day 1:

today's challenge:

Think of something you are willing to give up for 21 days,

and commit to it once and for all.

Write it down.

Tell someone so they can help to hold you accountable.

and remember,

it's just for 21 days.

you can do anything for 21 days.

I am going to be doing 4 things that I think my life is divided into. My Spiritual Walk, My Personal life, My family, My Mary Kay.  I think I will tell my director and have her hold me accountable.  She is already my mentor in my life.  I am excited about this because we can do anything for 21 days.  It is a short goal that gives you no time to percrastinate or half heartedly do.  Plus if you do something for 30 days it becomes a habit.  So here are mine. 
Spiritual- Every single day spend time in prayer.  Not just doing my bible reading so I can check it off my todo list.  But taking time to pray.  This includes Sundays.
Personal-Not gossiping.  No if, ands or buts.  Not to speak my oppinion about anyone else and what I think they should or should not do.  I hate it about myself and I have gotten better but I want it not part of my character.
Family-Every day connect with each one of my kids and husband.  Look them in the eye and tell them I love them. 
Mary Kay-Meet two new contacts every single day for 21 days to facial.  Hand out my card and get a name and number to follow up with.  I have been doing this half heartedly and inconsistant for too long. 

I am excited to report on day two tomorrow.  I am also going to print this list up and hang it in my office and in my goal folder.  If something is not visually in front of you, you will not stick to it or forget.  I will end with this song.  It is my favorite Taylor Swift Song.

Strange: This is basically exactly what the Lord has put on my heart to do! I need a few more people to help keep me accountable. I was running today and it hit me! I need the follow through. Praying for you friend!

Yay!!! So glad to see you're in!

I did a similar thing with my new years goals, and taped them on my bathroom mirror. It has helped SO much seeing them every day!
