out of routine challenge days 2-6

Before I write what I did in those days.
Why am I doing it and why am I writing about it?
1. To challenge myself with getting out of my comfort zone every day.
2. To keep myself in motion. Motion creates productive fulfilling life.
3. To stay productive.
4. writing about it to keep track of my progress.
5. To look on at bad days to remind myself that I can.

day 2.
On Friday I woke up early on purpose instead of sleeping in (no work on Friday!), I went to put my dirty laundry in a laundry place, my timing was so good; on my way with two huge bags full of dirty laundry I met one of the workers, he was on a motorbike, recognized me and took my laundry!

*speaking of motorbikes, I need to finish getting my license. </self reminder>
Then I had few fun hours with a friend, I was using my skills of mindfulness. and was able to enjoy life to its full. We had really good coffee, in two different places, we had some food at the first place and some dessert at the second. I finally felt like I control my life. I decided I am going to have a great day and I did!

Day 3.

A friend called in the morning while I was sleeping, actually sent a message that she and a friend from a previous day are meeting up and I should come. I put my laziness to a side and had another great day!

*Being spontaneous is fun </self note>

Day 4.
I did something that was hard for me. I went to my sewing studio to start and pack things to bring them back to my apartment. I was flooded with memories of about everything that could come into my mind. But I set myself to be there at least an hour, and I was, and I was productive. It was very hard but I am so proud of myself that I set myself a goal and did it.

Day 5.

I let myself have a nap. I’m in a weird relationship with sleeping lately, want to stay awake more, but had to give myself some rest.

Day 6. (today!)
I am going back to volunteering today at a helpline for the lgbt community after a long break.

 

 

 

30 day getting out of routine challange

Day one!

I’ve decided to make up a challenge about doing each day for thirty days something out of the ordinary for me and blog about it.
Why do you ask? Because I can.
Also, because it will make me more productive.

Back to day one.
I fucking hate going to hair salons, chatty weirdos with sharp tools in their hands trying to find out everything about my life, or tell me everything about theirs or, whatever, I just don’t like it.

But today I decided to go, not that I did something new, just fixed something that I had. I had doll-like bangs for over ten years, now it is side bangs. Or fringe, side fringe. I like fringe better.
I renewed my two side-cuts and had my hair cut to one length.

And I survived!
