juliebarkley Posted November 29, 2022 Report Share Posted November 29, 2022 For this challenge I will continue my previous challenge. I got a bit of a late start, so a short mini-challenge is just a perfect opportunity to get the most out of it. Here are the seeds I've planted in my garden so far: After I fold and put away my scarf, I will take my dirty clothes to the laundry room, then I will celebrate by doing a big victory sign. After I decide to go to bed, I will pick one important task for the following day and highlight it, then I will celebrate by whispering "I got this". After I get out of my chair at home, I will do two pushups, then I will celebrate by doing a fist pump. After I get up to eat supper, I will choose a book to read and bring it with me, then I will celebrate by hugging it to my chest. After I put my clothes in the laundry basket, I will knock on my son's door, then I will celebrate by smiling big. Here are my new additions: After my son goes to bed, I will select an audition, then I will give myself a tiny clap. After I do my Duolingo, I will read one person's challenge, then I will imagine that person smiling. And I still have ideas for more. The little plants fill my garden in one of three ways: they grow, they spread, or they multiply. The laundry, important task, and reading have grown - more reading happens, more tasks get done, or more laundry gets folded. The laundry has also spread - it became the anchor for a new habit, like a runner planting a new tiny plant. The pushups may grow, but I can feel that they will also multiply, inspiring new habits that are not directly related but have a similar goal. Happy challenge! 5 Quote Challenge archive Link to comment
