While I was on my Pursuit of Passion and traveling all around the United States I was fortunate enough to met so many amazing people that had character traits that I was both in awe of and to be honest, a bit envious of. After traveling, reading, praying, learning, and growing I realized that we all own these same traits and we are all capable of showcasing them in our own lives.
What is standing in our way?
I believe that our fears or past wounds often stop us from being fearless, compassionate, courageous, loving, etc. Once we break down this fear and start to live in a place of love, we can break these barriers and do things we once felt were impossible for us.
What is the 30 day challenge:
For the next 30 days I am going to choose one trait everyday and focus on doing something that forces me to incorporate that character trait into my daily life.
For example: Fearlessness: The day I went Skydiving was definitely a day that I set aside my fear of death, heights, and just the idea of jumping out of a plane. I decided that I could see it a different way and I started to see the process of jumping out of a plane as courageous, exciting, and peaceful (once I was floating in the air). This was a day I set aside my fear and decided that I was going to be Fearless and just follow through with Skydiving.
So………. as each day goes by I will pick one character trait and do something that day that forces me to live this out in my everyday life. After my experience of living out the character trait for that day, I will then write a blog post detailing my experiences . These blog posts will be short/mini blog posts, but my hope is that people will see this and also do their own challenge. I believe that if we challenge ourselves in this way, we can break down our own barriers, break down other people’s barriers, and live in a place of love instead of fear.
