Day 21 - 21 Day Challenge. It's all over!


21 days of daily blogging has come to an end.  While I expected this post to be a reflection of what I've learned and on the success (or otherwise) of the exercise, it can't really be either.  I've been successful in blogging every day, but I'm yet to determine if it's helped me create new patterns and habits.  I suspect I have become more mindful of my day and things that occur in it, but the question is will I sustain this?  Is this a foundation on which I can continue to build?  Is there more that I can do?  I don't know.

I think that I'm likely to keep some habits.  I want to maintain my blogging habits.  It's been nice to contribute a lot of content to a new blog, and I want to continue to share my random thoughts.  I'd just like to do it a little more mindfully and with greater time for reflection.

I am keen on carving out some time each week to take photos and try and really work on my skills.  I haven't done that in these posts, but I'd like to be able to contribute a meaningful - or at least related photo - with each post.

I want to try another 21 day challenge.  Now that I know I can commit to something for 21 days and actually do it, I want to find another area of my life where I can make a small incremental change for 21 days.  I'm going to spend a few days thinking about it.  I don't know that I'll blog about it though :-)

So that's it really.  I'm done.  Well except for the reflective posts that I should write in 1 week, 1 month and 1 years time to see if I have really made a difference in my behaviour.  I guess if I'm still posting here a few times a week then we'll know the 21 day challenge does work.
